  • 1 pound chicken breast, diced
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sustainable palm oil
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  • Preheat your oven: Preheating your oven ensures it reaches the correct temperature before cooking, ensuring even cooking, activating flavors, saving time, and preventing undercooked or overcooked chicken.
  • Prepare the chicken: In a bowl, combine the diced chicken with the minced chipotle peppers, garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together thoroughly to ensure the chicken is evenly coated with the spices.
  • Cook the chicken: Heat sustainable palm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add seasoned chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. Adjust the cooking time as needed to ensure the chicken is cooked through.
  • Prepare the toppings: While the chicken is cooking, follow the package instructions to prepare the rice. Additionally, gather the black beans, corn, avocado slices, and chopped cilantro to use as toppings for the Chipotle Chicken Bowls.
  • Assemble the bowls: Begin assembling your Chipotle Chicken Bowls by creating a base layer of cooked rice. Next, add the cooked chicken on top of the rice, followed by a generous portion of black beans and corn. Arrange slices of fresh avocado over the beans and corn, and sprinkle chopped cilantro over the entire bowl for a burst of fresh flavor.
  • Serve: To enhance the flavor of your Chipotle Chicken Bowls, serve them with lime wedges on the side. Squeezing fresh lime juice over the bowl just before eating adds a refreshing citrusy zing that complements the bold flavors of the dish. The acidity of the lime juice helps to brighten up the flavors and cut through any richness, balancing the dish perfectly.

Serving Suggestions

After baking, sprinkle the cooked chicken with freshly chopped cilantro and squeeze lime juice over the top for a burst of fresh flavor. Serve the Chipotle Chicken Bowls with a side of warm tortillas or tortilla chips for a satisfying crunch. For added creaminess, top the bowls with a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Pair the Chipotle Chicken Bowls with a side of Mexican-style rice and black beans for a complete and hearty meal. This dish also pairs well with a crisp green salad or a side of grilled vegetables for a lighter option. Experiment with different toppings and sides to create your own unique Chipotle Chicken Bowl experience!
