Why we love this Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe

Skip the Chipotle delivery and make this fresh burrito bowl at home, with the most deliciously seasoned chicken breast!

  • Healthy: Romaine lettuce, sweet corn, tomatoes, and cilantro make this dish so refreshing.
  • Hearty: Lean chicken and high-protein beans give you plenty of go-power.
  • Flavorful: The quick and fresh salsa, cheese, and sour cream add so much flavor to these tasty bowls.

Variations on Copycat Chipotle Chicken

  • You can make the burrito bowls vegetarian by swapping the chicken for roasted veggies.
  • You can also swap out the chicken for your favorite protein, such as beef, pork, or tofu.
  • Brown rice gives you a solid dose of healthy carbs and fiber. You can also use quinoa, white rice, amaranth, or couscous as an alternative grain.
  • Make low-carb burrito bowls by replacing the rice with cauliflower rice.
  • Turn these burrito bowls into a burrito by wrapping them in tortillas, or turn the filling into a wrap by wrapping it in spinach wraps (or your fave), or turn it into a salad by swapping the rice for lettuce.

How to Store and Reheat

Copycat chipotle chicken will last for 3 days in the refrigerator. 

The cooked/warm components–chicken, rice, black beans–can be stored together and will allow you to heat them in the microwave without heating the fresh components.

I would suggest storing the fresh/cold components in separate containers: lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, etc. so they don’t make each other soggy and stay as fresh as possible.
