chicken fajita flavour

Taking a note from the Best Chicken Fajitas, we used that recipe as a base to make these burrito bowls! The marinade is so incredible, you don’t need to marinate the chicken for long at all! 5 minutes or overnight, customise it to your specific needs, then sear or grill chicken until beautifully charred on the outer edges, while juicy and tender on the inside.

burrito bowl meal prep

Prefer to meal prep instead of serving your burrito bowl as a main meal? No problem!

1 Have all of your fresh ingredients divided into 4-6 containers.

2 Cook your chicken, peppers and rice — allow to cool and divide into containers.

3 Prepare your dressing and pour into smaller salad dressing containers to avoid your burrito bowl going soggy.

4 Save your avocado until ready to serve.
