This may be one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever shared–not that they’re ever that complicated–but I whipped up this bowl so quickly on Sunday night and got a few messages asking for the recipe, so here it is. I usually roast or grill chicken at the beginning of the week and have it on hand for easy, healthy meals like this one. There were two chicken breasts left and I just so happened to have the rest of these ingredients laying around, and put this easy chipotle bowl recipe together.

My Quick and Easy Chipotle Bowl Recipe

I’m a big fan in Chipotle. I used to get it all the time – but try to keep my sodium intake low, and avoid eating out during the work week when I can. This is healthier and costs less than chipotle, and you can cater it to any dietary restriction. When I am reducing my carb intake, I skip out on rice. Paleo? Exclude the corn. I’m sure you could make the chicken have more of a wow factor but this is quick and easy. You could grill the corn yourself but I’m going for easy, so I just used frozen grilled corn. Grill what you want to (grilled onions are the best, right) or just chop them and toss them in when you’re in a pinch. Chop avocado, make your own guac, or buy ready made guac at the store. it’s fast, easy, and always tastes good. 


Chicken Breast (1)
Red onion, chopped (1/3)
Roma tomato (1)
Avocado (1)
Orange pepper (1)
1 cup of lettuce
Trader Joe’s frozen grilled corn
White rice (8 oz)
Olive oil and balsamic to taste
Fresh salsa and/or guacamole (to taste)

How to prepare it

Ok, so this is literally the easiest thing ever. I used the bagged frozen jasmine rice and roasted corn from Trader Joe’s, so I heated those up and chopped up some peppers, 1 avocado, 1/3 red onion, and added some olive oil and balsamic. I was feeling real lazy but plan on upping my game with some guac and salsa next time.And voila. The easiest chipotle bowl ever without all the sodium.
