Chicken Burrito Bowls

Chicken Burrito Bowls

There are so many things to love about this recipe. These 21 Day Fix  and WW Chicken Burrito Bowls, which were created by my friend Chellie over at Art From My Table, are super healthy and full of whole foods. Also, they’re kid-friendly. Because of the nature of this recipe, you can add what you want to your burrito bowl and leave out the things you don’t want…perfect for picky eaters!

Also, because this recipe is deconstructed, it’s really easy to figure out your container counts if you’re on the 21 Day Fix. You can measure out your portions as you put your bowl together (see below for container counts following Chellie’s recipe, though!). Same for Weight Watchers…you can add or remove items depending on your daily points allowance!

21 Day Fix Chicken Burrito Bowls

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make them (feel free to tweak as you see fit…this is super customizable!):

1 tbs olive oil
2 chicken breasts
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup black beans
3 cups diced orange bell pepper (or, do one of each – green, orange, red)
1 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2  cup green onions
1/2 cup cheese
1 cup cooked brown rice
Cilantro for garnish.

What I love about this recipe is how simple it is…and also how it’s one of those things you can make for the whole family. You can let picky eaters pick their toppings! it’s kind of like DIY pizza night but with fewer carbs.

This recipe is great for the 21 Day Fix and WW, but as you can probably tell you can also make it work really well for any low-carb, high-protein meal plan.

I have been obsessed with burrito bowls lately! Over lots of cauliflower rice and topped with hot sauce and avocado 🙂

I’ve been looking for “bowl” recipes. This one looks good.

Looks so good. Thanks for sharing at the InspirationSpotlight party. Pinned & Shared

If I don’t use the tomato or beans (don’t like them) what will my containers be for the remainder of the recipe.


Did you cook the corn or just use it thawed?

Hi! Just found this looking for 21 Day Fix recipes. Can’t wait to try this. Wanted to let you know that your pics are beautiful- it’s what made me click on it. Great job 🙂

This burrito bowl is awesome! It was super easy to make and needed a change from salads every day for lunch. I forgot my corn, but still turned out awesome! I really was worried about liking this, but turns out I love it! I ended up using a packet of Organic Quinoa & Whole Grain Brown Rice instead. I didn’t have to cook the rice in advance and cut down on my prep time even more! Love how easy and delicious it is. Thank you! I look forward to more of your recipes. 🙂

Giving this a try in my meal prep plans for next week! I also want to throw it out there that one of my favorite variations on bowl recipes like this one is to blend lime juice and fresh cilantro with my Greek yogurt for a little extra zing. 🙂

Hi ,
I just cooked this and its good.I did make a slight
Mistake used fire roasted diced tomatoes instead .
Was still good
Thanks again

This recipe is a go-to for us. One of our favorites!!!

Do you know if this has ever been mixed together and frozen? Does it freeze well?

What do you do with the bell peppers?
