Grilled Mexican Chicken Bowl


It is August 1st and I am going back to work after a lovely 4 month break. This weekend was the launch of AIK radio and thank you to all who tuned in. It has been a bit busy around here but one night last week I recreated my favorite chicken bowl from Chipotle!

I love the grilled chicken, layered over cilantro rice and topped with crisp salsa topped vegetables. It is healthy, quick and spicy, depending on the salsa you use. You can make it for your family and use mild salsa for the kids and spicier for the adults. You could add beans as an additional layer for even more nutritional value.

This week we have a new giveaway. You can enter to win a $25 gift certificate to the Tom Kat Studios and a copy of one of Cathe Laurie’s favorite books, The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer.
