Ingredients

  • Juice of two limes Approximately 1/4 cup lime juice total
  • Canola oil or Coconut Oil
  • 1 lb of mini sweet peppers in an assortment of colors you can usually buy a bag of assorted sweet peppers, sliced into strips
  • 1/2 Onion sliced into rounds or strips
  • 2 TBS minced Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4-6 cups cooked rice
  • 3 chicken breasts cut into chicken tenders
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 California Avocados
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Combine the juice of one lime and 3 tablespoons oil in a bowl.
  • Combine all peppers and onions and garlic in a ziplock bag or a reusable food storage bag, and pour contents of oil/lime bowl atop them. Shake until vegetables are well coated.
  • Pour vegetables onto a sprayed sheet-pan and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. I line my baking sheet with a Silicon Baking Mat for even easier clean up.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While Vegetables are roasting, start your rice cooking according to its directions.
  • In a large saute or frying pan lightly coat the bottom with oil, over medium high-high heat.
  • Sprinkle the chicken lightly with salt and pepper.
  • When the oil is hot, add the chicken to the pan and let it cook for about 60 seconds on each side until lightly browned.
  • Remove the vegetables from the oven and add the chicken to the sheet-pan. Right with the veggies.
  • Sprinkle everything lightly with the remaining lime juice, then the onion powder, ground cumin, and chili powder.
  • Return to the oven for 6-8 more minutes. Until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Arranging your avocado bowls

  • Layer your bowl with the cooked rice, vegetables and chicken, then top the entire dish off with fresh avocado and cilantro.
  • Dressing is optional as this tastes amazing on its own!
