These Chicken Burrito Bowls are a delightful and nutritious meal prep option, offering a perfect balance of protein, fiber, and vibrant flavors. The recipe combines a medley of ingredients to create a satisfying and wholesome dish that’s not only delicious but also suitable for those mindful of their points or calorie intake.

The heart of these bowls lies in the well-seasoned chicken, where a blend of chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, pepper, and salt infuses a savory and slightly smoky profile. Whether you opt for raw chicken breasts or the convenience of pre-cooked grilled chicken strips, the result is a succulent and flavorful protein source.

Complementing the chicken is a trio of nutritious components: corn, black beans, and cilantro lime cauliflower rice. The corn adds a touch of sweetness, while the black beans contribute protein and fiber. The cilantro lime cauliflower rice not only enhances the nutritional content but also brings a refreshing zest to each bite, creating a well-rounded and satisfying base for the bowl.

The toppings elevate the dish with a burst of freshness and creaminess. Fat-free salsa adds a zingy kick without compromising on points, and non-fat Greek yogurt provides a creamy, tangy element. The garnishes, including lime wedges and cilantro, add a final touch of brightness and herbaceous flavor.

For those looking to keep points in check, the recipe cleverly incorporates Trader Joe’s reduced guilt guacamole, which adds creamy richness without accumulating extra points. Alternatively, you can opt for diced avocado, adjusting points accordingly.

As a versatile and convenient meal prep option, these Chicken Burrito Bowls can be assembled in advance and stored in airtight containers for up to a week. Whether enjoyed for busy weekday lunches or quick dinners, these bowls offer a delicious, satisfying, and health-conscious dining experience.

To make chicken:

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.  Stir until well combined.
If using raw chicken breasts, slice the raw chicken breasts into strips. Coat chicken strips or precooked tenders with seasonings. Spray a 12″ skillet with non stick cooking spray. Place seasoned chicken breasts or tenders in skillet.
Cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until chicken strips are grilled and no longer pink-or until the precooked chicken strips are lightly brown.
Remove from heat.  Allow them to cool for 5 minutes then dice into bite size pieces.

To assemble:

Divide cauliflower rice evenly among 4 bowls or air tight meal prep containers.
Add 1/2 cup corn, 1/2 cup black beans, 1/2 cup cilantro lime cauliflower rice, 1 cup diced chicken.
Top with fat free salsa and 1 Tbsp of non fat Greek yogurt.  Serve with 1 lime wedge. 
Garnish with cilantro and 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s reduced guilt guacamole ( 1 Tbsp is 0 points ) or avocado ( for additional points), if desired.
Enjoy! Store remaining servings in the fridge for up to a week.
