It’s happened again, I’ve gotten off late from work and arrived home only to have no idea what to make for dinner. With a hungry spouse and a ravenous child (and a growling belly myself) waiting for me, what can I prepare that’s super easy, quick, and healthy?
Enter my latest creation, the Super Simple Chicken Burrito Bowl! (Otherwise known as what I threw together in a moment of hangry panic at a time when we happened to have some produce but no tortillas on hand…alas, I digress…)
Super Simple Chicken Burrito Bowl
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken, chopped into bite-sized pieces (I prefer thighs, but any cut will do)
1 can of black beans
1 bag (2 cups) of frozen steamer-bag brown rice (or you can make your own)
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Adobo seasoning to taste (I like Goya’s)
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
In a large frying pan, sauté chicken in olive oil and add Adobo. Once fully cooked, add black beans and cooked rice. Stir mixture over low heat until combined; add Adobo to taste. Top with tomatoes and avocados.
This meal was so quick to prepare, in part due to the steamer bag of rice. It was hearty enough and healthy enough to satiate a busy family on a hectic weeknight as well. Speed and nutrition are hallmarks of simple food in my opinion.
If you decide to try it I hope you enjoy!
