These Chicken Burrito Bowls have become one of my favorite lunches. It’s easy, quick and flavorful!! The best part is that they are low in points or even zero points depending on your zero point food list.

There are so many variations that you can made. Let’s see talk about all those variations:

What can I add to these Burrito Bowls?

  • Chicken-You can use a batch of my Zero Point Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Shredded Chicken, 1 pound of raw boneless, skinless chicken breast, or precooked grilled chicken tenders.
  • Steak– grill and season just as directed in this recipe. Keep in mind-the point value will change if you substitute the chicken for steak-since steak is not zero points. 
  • Ground Lean Beef or Turkey- cook and season as directed in the recipe. Keep in mind the point values will vary depending on what kind you use.
  • Shrimp-use raw, or cooked and peeled shrimp, season and cook in as skillet until throughly cooked. The point value will be the same for this substitution. 
  • Pork- You can use my Mexican Sweet Pulled Pork recipe in these bowls as well. Super Tasty! Keep in mind-the point value will change if you substitute chicken for pork-since pork is not zero points. 
  • Corn-You can use fresh, canned, or frozen corn kernels. You can use sweet white corn, yellow corn, or roasted corn. Be sure to thaw the frozen before adding to the chicken bowls otherwise it adds more liquid to the burrito bowls and it can get soggy.
  • Black Beans– I use canned black beans-be sure to rinse and drain them before adding them to your bowls.
  • Avocado- if you have avocado as a zero point food- add a few slices without adding points!
  • Trader Joe’s reduced guilt guacamole- ( 0 points for 1 Tbsp or 1 Personalpoint for 2 Tablespoons) 
  • Green onions- thinly sliced
  • Fat free sour cream or non fat plain Greek Yogurt- add this just before serving 
  • Cilantro- chopped 
  • Cilantro Cauliflower Rice- These bowls taste awesome with my Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice. You can use white, jasmine, or brown rice as substitute if you desire. The point value will vary depending on which one you use. Just follow the recipe for the Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice after it’s been placed in the skillet.
  • Fat Free Salsa-You can use store bought ( be sure to check to make sure there is no added sugar in the store bought salad in order to keep it zero points), fresh from the deli, or if you like sweet salsa, you can make my Zero Point Mango Salsa-which add a bit of sweetness to these chicken bowls!

 

How do I make these Burrito Bowls?

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.  

Stir until well combined.

If using raw chicken breasts, slice the raw chicken breasts into strips.

Coat chicken strips or precooked tenders with seasonings.

Spray a 12″ skillet with non stick cooking spray. Place seasoned chicken breasts or tenders in skillet.

Cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until chicken strips are grilled and no longer pink-or until the precooked chicken strips are lightly brown.

Remove from heat.  Allow them to cool for 5 minutes then dice into bite size pieces.

Store the leftovers in the fridge for up to a week.

How do I assemble these Zero Point Chicken Burrito Bowls?

Divide cauliflower rice evenly among 4 bowls or air tight meal prep containers.

Add 1/2 cup corn, 1/2 cup black beans, 1 cup diced chicken.

Top with fat free salsa and 1 Tbsp of non fat Greek yogurt.  Serve with 1 lime wedge. 

Garnish with cilantro and 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s reduced guilt guacamole ( 1 Tbsp is 0 points ) or avocado ( for zero or additional points), if desired.

If you are storing these in meal prep containers-you will assemble the corn, beans, Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice, chicken and lime. 

Then add the fat free salsa, guacamole, avocado and non fat greek yogurt just before serving. 

Enjoy!
