Since the beginning of the year I’ve been doing this “game on” challenge where I have am teamed up with several other ladies and we are challenged to make smart choices in our diets, create new good habits and break old bad habits.

It’s been difficult, but totally worth the challenge. Needless to say, I’ve been making these Chicken Fajita Rice Bowls over and over again because it hits all the requirements I need.

I use precooked brown or multigrain rice and pre-grilled chicken to make this recipe an even quicker one.

I’m always adding grilled chicken to my salads or rice bowls, so I typically grill a big batch in the beginning of the week and store it in the fridge. You could also use shredded rotisserie chicken, grilled steak or even just make it all veggies if you want!

Here’s some more fun options for your Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl:

  • Use salsa as a dressing to keep the calories light
  • Add sliced black olives
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese
  • Add a 1/4 cup rinsed and drained black beans

    Made this last night for my hubby and myself. He’s super picky. This was an absolute hit. He got the dreaded letter in the mail from the doctor saying things had to change. I will def be making this numerous times. Easy and quick. I bought a rotisserie chicken.
