This is a copycat recipe (with a few changes) for Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls


·         For the chicken:

·         4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness and dried

·         Juice of half a lime

·         ¼ cup Persian Lime Infused Olive oil

·         3 T homemade Taco seasoning (or store bought)

·         For Cilantro-Lime Rice:

·         2 cups uncooked long grain rice

·         2 T salted butter

·         Juice of 1 large lime, for tossing

·         2/3 cup freshly chopped cilantro, for tossing

·         For Burrito Salad

·         1 cup chopped romaine lettuce

·         ½ cup diced bell peppers, any color

·         ½ cup diced tomatoes

·         ½ diced red onions

·         ½ cup sweet corn kernels

·         ½ cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

·         ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

·         2 stalks scallions, chopped

·         Garnishes:  sour cream, fresh guacamole, fresh salsa

·         Finishing drizzle:  Persian lime infused olive oil and Mango balsamic!


·         Cook rice according to package instructions, adding the butter and salt into the water.  Without lifting the lid, set cooked rice aside.

·         While rice is cooking, prepare the chicken:  In a bowl, combine the chicken with oil, lime, taco seasoning.  Toss to coat and cover.  Marinate for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, chop all the Burrito Salad ingredients and toss them together in a bowl.  Set aside.

·         Grill chicken on medium high heat, about 4 min per side, depending on thickness of chicken.  Cook just until center is no longer pink; don’t over-cook.  Remove from heat and set aside.

·         Toss and fluff rice with a fork.  Add the lime juice and cilantro and toss to combine.  Spoon rice into individual bowls.  Toss Burrito Salad ingredients in a mixture of Persian Lime Olive oil and Mango Balsamic and place on top of the rice.  Add sliced grilled chicken and garnish as desired.  Serve warm or at room temp.

This is a great recipe to get your griller, chopper, and one-pot cooker all to pitch in!
