Spiced Chicken – For this recipe, you’ll need Smart Chicken’s chicken breasts. Two breasts or about one pound will work. Toss the chicken with taco seasoning for added flavor.

Vegetables / Fruits – For this recipe, you’ll need onions sliced thin, bell peppers sliced thin, diced jalapeno, sliced avocado, chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges.

Lime Crema – For this recipe, you will combine light sour cream, lime juice, lime zest, minced garlic and salt. Mix until well combined.

How to Make Chicken Burrito Bowls

Preheat the oven to 375.

Grab a baking tray and add the sliced onions and bell peppers to one side. Season with salt and black pepper.

Toss the chicken breasts with taco seasoning and add them to the other side of the baking tray.

Drizzle everything with olive oil.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit inside.

Combine light sour cream, fresh squeezed lime juice, lime zest, minced garlic and salt in a small mixing bowl. Mix until well combined and set aside.

Add the microwaved rice to the bottom of the bowl.
