#MakeItMonday {Clean & Healthy Chicken Burrito Bowl}

Eat your heart out Chipotle. I just made this Burrito Bowl for dinner and it was so fresh and so tasty. We are Chipotle fans and like any favorite meal of ours; I always question trying to replicate. It's like the saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, I went for it and I am glad I did.

Cook time: 30 minutes  Prep time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4
21 Day Fix Friendly- 1.5 green containers, 1.5 yellow containers,  1 red container  (per serving)

Ingredients-
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 10 oz can of corn
  • 10 oz can black beans
  • 4 cups of chopped lettuce
  • 2 cups of quinoa
  • 2 cups diced tomato
  • salsa (optional)
  • cilantro for garnish (optional)



Instructions-
  • Wrap each chicken breast in foil and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before shredding.
  • Chop lettuce.
  • Prepare quinoa. I used Simply Balance (Target) Southwest Style Quinoa and Brown Rice, which is easy peasy 90 seconds in the microwave.
  • Putting your bowl together- This is most likely personal preference, but here is how I filled my bowl: 1cup of chopped lettuce (1 green container), 1/4 cup of quinoa and brown rice (1/2 yellow container), 1/4 cup of black beans (1/2 yellow container), 1/4 cup of corn (1/2 yellow container), 3/4 cup of shredded chicken (1 red container),  1/2 cup of diced tomato (1/2 green container). Salsa is an optional and would be considered a purple container.
The beauty of this recipe, are the options. There are so many based on your likes! There really is no right to wrong. I am pretty sure this will be a staple in our house from now on. Enjoy!
