Lunchbox: Chicken Burrito Bowl

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 30 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins

One of our favourite meal prep for lunch has been this chicken burrito bowl, we've made it time and time again, and can easily be adjusted to what suits you - instead of chicken, it can be mince or tofu. 


For the Chicken
- 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 packet taco seasoning

For the Rice
- 1 cup white basmati rice

For the guacamole and salsa
- 1/2 ripe Avocado
- 2 tablespoons cilantro minced
- 1 red onion minced
- 1 small tomato diced
- juice of 1 lime

Other things for the bowls
- 2 Bell Peppers sliced into strips
- 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
- 1/2 cup black beans


For the Chicken: Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. In a large bowl, cut into small pieces and combine the chicken and taco seasoning along with 1 tablespoon oil and place on an oven tray for 20 minutes.

For the Rice: While the chicken is cooking, following the instructions of your rice packet.

To make guacamole and tomato salsa: While the rice and chicken are cooking, mash the avocado in a small bowl. Add half the minced cilantro (1 tablespoon) and half the minced onion (1 tablespoon). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and juice of 1/2 lime. Stir until the avocados are fully mashed. Set aside. In another small bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, and the remaining minced cilantro (1 tablespoons and minced red onion (1 tablespoons).

To assemble: Divide the rice, chicken, bell peppers, and beans into 4 meal-prep bowls. Divide the romaine lettuce, a tomato salsa, a scoop of guacamole and scoop of sour-cream into the remains 2 bowls.

Storing: Cover and store in the fridge for up to 4 days and the cold ingredients (salad, guc, salsa) for 2 days.

To re-heat: Heat ONLY the chicken and rice bowls for 2-3 minutes in the microwave. Top with the salad bowls when ready to eat. Prep more of the cold bowls when you run out. Enjoy!
