Super Easy Chicken Lime Fiesta Bowl Recipe

Get it while it's HOT! One-bowl recipes are IN right now! They are easy to make and perfect for quick summer meals. This meal takes 30 minutes to make. I will share the recipe if you do me a HUGE favor? Please don't let my husband know how easy this recipe is to make.

Chicken Lime Fiesta Bowl
Servings 6

1 box of Zatarain's® Cilantro Lime Rice Mix
1 Tbsp butter for rice mix
1 can black beans
4-6 avocados
1 batch Pico de Gallo (my easy recipe) or salsa
1 bunch cilantro
2 limes
2 jalapeƱos
1 lb. chicken breast
2 cans Rotel Tomatoes (diced tomatoes with chilies)

1. Cook rice according to the box. It takes 25 minutes so start this first.
-Follow cooking instructions.

2. Next immediately start chicken. Put chicken in a pan with a lid.
-Dump in both cans of Rotel tomatoes with 1/2 cup of water. Let simmer with lid on.
-After 15 minutes turn chicken over. Let cook another 10-15 minutes.
-Then shred chicken and keep in pan with lid on until ready to serve. You keep on low
if done before ready to serve.

3. While food cooking prep rest of ingredients. I put all in separate containers.
-Open can of beans, rinse with water and let drain.
-Coarse chop up avocado. Each serving gets 1 avocado or 1/2 if you prefer.
Only cut what you need for this meal.
-Coarse chop cilantro.
-Cut lime into wedges.
-Coarse chop jalapeƱos

4. Make Pico de Gallo or use salsa. If you are making mine, make sure to get the
ingredients, too! It is super easy.

5. Put it all together. I love this part of bowl recipes. Everyone can make their own.
Just so you know, the rice & chicken do not need to be hot to serve this. I keep all
ingredients separate and put away in fridge for next meal.

6. Kitchen Tips: Make it quicker by cooking chicken in the Instant Pot.
Same ingredients. Time will be 10-12 minutes. Or I've been known to grab cooked
chicken from the store. Do whatever works for you. Switch up any of the ingredients
that suits your family. No black beans in the pantry but you have refried beans or
great northern? Use them. Make it your way!
