I love to eat at places like Qdoba® and Chipotle®, so I created my own chicken burrito at home, minus the tortilla! This is very easy for a weeknight meal and is very filling and healthy; the recipe can easily be increased for more people.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Season chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.

  • Grill chicken until no longer pink in the center and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Cut chicken into strips or bite-sized pieces.

  • Warm corn and black beans in separate saucepans over medium-low heat, covered, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Layer cooked rice, corn, black beans, and chicken on 2 serving plates. Top with Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute Mexican garlic seasoning for the garlic powder if desired.

Chipotle salsa works well for the topping!

I recommend using a George Foreman(R) grill to cook the chicken.

Love the combo of the ingredients but like others thought it would be a bit bland - we're from South Texas and love our spice -. So topped this perfect bowl with chile lime vinaigrette also from this site. YUM YUM. I used this dressing to marinate the chicken breasts as well. This is a perfect pairing. Thanks so much for this recipe Read More

Naked Chicken Burrito Bowl Haiku: "Chicken pretty bland but the bowl 'guts' jazzed it up. Not the quickest meal." I love Chipotle but don't have one near me and whenever I go to one the line's always out the door so I was happy to try this recipe in re-creating their bowls. The chicken and the rice here really need a zip - a marinade or additional seasoning b/c ultimately this recipe's only as tasty as your salsa (or if the black beans you use are a pre-seasoned brand.) I did everything as directed even using my George Foreman too and when every single thing was scooped into my mouth it was tasty but all separate ingredients were kind of 'yawn.' I think I'd make this again but possibly as a do-ahead casserole style but definitely w/ the chicken marinated or cilantro/lime added to rice. Read More

Wow! Have had this recipe saved for a while now. I was looking for burrito inspirations while in the grocery store and this popped back up in my life. Problem was I was crunched for time had 1 hour to cook and feed the clan so I decided to improvise only 1 small thing.... Rotisserie chicken pre-made for me by my grocery store and decided to warm t up in a skillet with a little taco seasoning for 10 minutes. The rest was exactly as written. This recipe allows for significant leftovers which I love!!! I first made burrito bowls then with left overs made burritos and for 2nd day I made some soft tacos adding and deleting a few condiments along the way to switch it up a bit. Read More

We Arizonans love our spice like Texans so here's what I did. I used Taco Seasoning instead of garlic powder and salt on the chicken Pepper Jack instead of Monterey Jack sliced one green onion and added after the lettuce and mixed Taco Sauce with the sour cream to make it more like a dressing. A great recipe made a bit spicier thank you for submitting it! Read More

This was amazing! A wonderful blend of flavors. The only improvements I can think of would be a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of cilantro. Read More

We used pinto beans because we didn't have black beans and added sriracha mayo to add some more flavor but would've preferred southwest ranch. And cilantro is a must. Very yummy! Read More
