Ingredients

  • For the chicken:
  • 1 1/4 pounds NatureRaised Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili powder depending on the heat level of your chili powder. I use a mild chili powder so I do the full 2 tablespoons.
  • 3 cups cooked white or brown rice or quinoa
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 15- ounce can of black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup salsa or pico de gallo
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce

Instructions

  • To prepare the marinade, pour the lime juice, olive oil and water into a large resealable bag. Add the garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, smoked paprika, onion powder and chili powder.
  • Seal bag and shake to combine. Add the chicken to the bag of marinade, seal and place in fridge - marinate at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat a grill, grill pan or skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  • Chop the cooked chicken into bite sized pieces.
  • Place the rice or quinoa in a large bowl; add the cilantro, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste; toss to coat the rice evenly.
  • Divide the rice between 4 bowls. Arrange the chicken, beans, salsa, avocado, sour cream and lettuce on top of the rice. Serve immediately.
