This tequila lime chicken is so AH-Mazing! I prefer to use boneless skinless chicken thighs but breasts work just as well. I make it for tacos, burgers, salads and these delicious burrito bowls…SO GOOD! If I crave these burrito bowls during the rainy season I usually use my indoor grill, it works like a charm.
This Cilantro Lime Garlic Rice is the perfect base to these burrito bowls or a side dish to many Mexican meals.
Chipotle was the first time I ever had a burrito bowl and of course I just fell in love with it. Making them at home is so easy, chicken is my favorite protein for these then all the yummy veggies.
Enjoy it with crunchy tortilla chips, scoop some into a warm tortilla, or just make a layered bowl and grab a fork. Whether it be winter, spring, summer or fall these will hit the spot and make a fantastic weeknight meal.
