Shredded Salsa Chicken Burrito Bowl
PREP 10 MIN•COOK 20 MIN
Time to add some new flavors to your weekly meal prep! Cook up a big batch of chicken (use the slow cooker for added ease) and portion into containers. You can also freeze the chicken – after defrosting, simply add the fresh salad and warm rice for a high-protein meal. This recipe has been adapted from Angie's book Fuel Your Body: How to Cook and Eat for Peak Performance.
Number of servings
250g skinless chicken breast
1⁄2 olive oil spray
1 green pepper deseeded & sliced
1⁄2 cup (112 1⁄2g) chunky tomato salsa
3⁄4 cup (125g) pre-cooked brown rice cooked according to packet directions
1⁄2 tin of black beans (400g tin) drained & rinsed
1⁄4 head of iceberg lettuce shredded
1 medium tomato diced
1⁄2 avocado (medium) sliced
2 sprigs of fresh coriander optional
1⁄2 lime cut into wedges, optional
salt & pepper, to taste
Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a very gentle simmer.
Add chicken and continue to simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until chicken is just cooked through. Remove from heat, cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a board and use two forks to shred the meat.
Meanwhile, spray a large frypan with oil, add green peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened and lightly charred. Transfer to a plate.
Add shredded chicken and salsa to the hot pan and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until heated through.
Divide the rice, beans, lettuce, tomato and peppers between serving bowls.
Top with the salsa chicken, avocado and coriander and lime wedges if using. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
Slow cooker method:
Put the chicken breasts in the slow cooker, cover with salsa and cook for 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Transfer chicken to a board and use two forks to shred the meat. Return to the slow cooker, stir to combine and let sit for 5 minutes.
