Chicken Burrito Bowls
  • Prep: 10
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4


  • 400 g skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 tsp ground cumin
  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 400 g can reduced-salt corn kernels, drained
  • 400 g can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice, cooked
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 head lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup reduced-fat cheese, grated
  • 1 cup guacamole, (see our recipe)


In a small bowl mix garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and cumin to make a taco seasoning.

Place the chicken breasts on a chopping board and slice horizontally through the breasts to create two thin slices per breast. Flatten the slices with a meat mallet. Sprinkle both sides with the taco seasoning.

Spray a large non-stock fry pan with olive oil and heat over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes one side, flip and cook for a further 4 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Heat the corn and black beans in a separate pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat.

Warm the rice in the microwave and mix in the chopped coriander and lime juice.

Divide the rice, chicken, corn, beans, lettuce, tomatoes and onion into 4 bowls. Top with cheese and serve with guacamole.


  • Replace the chicken with 400 g uncooked rump steak and follow recipe as usual.
