BBQ Chicken Bowl
BBQ Chicken Bowls are an easy meal prep meal for the week! This delicious and healthy recipe is a favorite of Hayley Lucero (@realfoodwithaltitude) and inspired by her love of BBQ chicken pizza.
Cook your desired rice according to the package (brown rice, cauliflower rice, etc).
While the rice is cooking, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan to medium heat. Then add the onions. Saute for about 5 minutes.
When onions are fork-tender, add the chopped pineapple to the pan. Let this warm in the pan for about 3 minutes. The pineapple may get slightly brown in the pan and that is ok, do not cook it until it is mushy.
Warm the chicken either in a pan or the microwave with 3/4 cup of the BBQ sauce (save the rest for topping). Make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated with sauce and heated through.
Assemble your bowl! Add the rice and chicken, then add pineapple, onion, jalapenos, pepperoncinis, avocado and cilantro.
Top with extra BBQ sauce and serve. Enjoy!
Use left over chicken for an easy weeknight meal.
If you are doing a Whole30 serve it over cauliflower rice or lettuce, if not then you can also serve it over any grain!
Use any veggies you like in this. I like things spicy so I added a few peppers.
My favorite BBQ sauce is The New Primal Smokey BBQ (it is Whole30 Approved and no added sugars), but you get to pick what kind you like best. You can use the code ALTITUDE15 for 15% off your order.
