This is one of my favorite items I do for meal! I call it Fiesta Chicken Bow, it’s just something I threw together instead of going out to eat at Moe’s or Chipotle I figured I could make my own version in a healthier way.
- 1lb. of Boneless Skinless Breast
- 1 can of Black Beans (i always find a low sodium verison I prefer)
- 2 Tomatoes
- 1 Jalopeno Pepper
- 1 small can of sliced black olives
- 1 Bellpepper of your choice
- 1/2 package of Green Onions
- 2 Limes
- Brown Rice
- Avocado or Salsa (I found the one above Guacamole Salsa that has a kick I love)
I seasoned my chicken with Paprika, Cumin, Chili Powder and Garlic. After I rinse and dice my chicken I season the chicken and set aside so I can get my rice started. I found an Organic Brown Rice from Aldi that I like and also for a great price. After I start my rice I get the other ingrediants chopped up and I rinse the black beans.
Depending on the pans you have make sure if you need to put in oil in the pan to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil, I how ever have some great nonstick pans that I got from Le Creuset so I don’t always use a nonstick spray or oil. Anyways, get your chicken cooked up and by then your rice should be done as well. I just layered my items how ever you would like. I start with my heavier item which is rice, then the chicken and finishing with the veggies. I don’t use the sauce until I am ready to eat which I put on the side so I don’t over use.
