20 Minute Body Fat Burning Chicken Burrito Bowl
Prep Time: 20 minutes
The key to this quick and healthy chicken burrito bowl is pre-grilled chicken. The colorful mix of cabbage, homemade red bell pepper tomato salsa and grilled chicken will give a fresh mexican blend. The white beans are one of the best beans to support fat burning and rich amounts of protein boosts this further. When it comes to grilling meats, especially chicken which can dry out easily, I’m a big fan of the Nutri-Grill. Serves 1.
- Pre-grilled chicken breast, sliced thin (3 oz)
- ¼ cup white beans
- 1 teaspoon chicken broth
- Pinch of cayenne
- Pinch of garlic powder
- ½ cup red cabbage, sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt
- Bell pepper tomato salsa
- Fresh cilantro
- Sliced green onions
- 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 1 cup chopped tomato
- ½ a juiced lime
- Fresh chopped cilantro
- 1 serrano pepper
- Pinch of sea salt
Heat white beans with chicken broth, cayenne, and garlic powder in a pot for 5 minutes until heated. Set aside. Add the thinly sliced red cabbage to your bowl. Spoon the white beans on top. Layer sliced chicken, Greek yogurt, salsa, and cilantro and green onions as garnish.
To make this dairy-free, replace the Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt.
If you want to make it more like a traditional burrito, use a corn or another gluten-free tortilla.
To satisfy your sweet tooth, try adding ½ cup chopped fresh pineapple to your salsa mix.
