Burrito Bowl Meal Prep Recipe

Burrito Bowls Recipe

2 chicken breasts, cubed

1 can low sodium beans
1 1/4 cups corn, steamed
1 cup uncooked brown rice (you can make more or less depending on your preferences)


1 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

-other toppings as desired-

Prepare rice per the directions on the package. I love using my rice maker for this and letting it cook while I prepare all the other ingredients.

Mix seasoning ingredients together and add to cubed chicken. Cook the chicken in a skillet with 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat until cooked through.

Drain and rinse the beans, and divide equally among your meal prep containers. Add about 1/4 cup of corn and 1/4 cup of brown rice to each container. Then divide the chicken breast evenly among the containers. Finish with desired toppings. I sometimes add cheese or avocado to top them off.
