Southwest Chicken Meal Prep Bowls


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Brown Rice

  • 8 ozs Chicken Breast

  • 2 tsps Avocado Oil (divided)

  • 1 1/2 tsps Taco Seasoning (divided)

  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut Yogurt

  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice

  • 1 tbsp Cilantro

  • 1 1/2 cups Green Cabbage (thinly sliced)

  • 1/2 Green Bell Pepper (medium, chopped)

  • 1 Tomato (medium, chopped)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400oF (204oC).

  2. Cook the rice according to package directions. Let the rice cool slightly.

  3. Meanwhile, place the chicken breast in a baking dish and season both sides with 1/2 of the oil and 2/3 of the taco seasoning. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken breast is cooked through. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes then slice.

  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the coconut yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, the remaining oil, and the remaining taco seasoning to make a dressing.

  5. Divide the rice, cabbage, peppers, tomato, and chicken between bowls. Serve with the yogurt dressing. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Serve cold or to reheat store the cabbage, veggies, and yogurt separately from the chicken and rice.

  • More Flavor: Add red pepper flakes, smoked paprika, or cayenne pepper to the taco seasoning. Season with salt if needed.

  • Additional Toppings: Lime wedges, cilantro, or chopped green onion.

  • No Brown Rice: Use quinoa or cauliflower rice instead.

  • No Cabbage: Use romaine lettuce or kale instead.
