I always order power bowls at restaurants so I wanted to recreate my own. BBQ Chicken Power Bowl is LOADED with flavor and PACKED with protein. This recipe is great because all of the ingredients come together to make one wholesome dish. No need for additional sides because all your nutrients are combined into one delicious bowl. This dish is naturally gluten free.
Wholesome and Delicious BBQ Chicken Power Bowl
I’m a sucker for healthy but delicious food. I really love dishes that are all mixed up in one bowl. One of my favorite quick restaurants is chipotle. It was my inspiration for this recipe.
The barbecue chicken in this dish so delicious in this bowl, and can be used in different ways for different recipes. This Creamy BBQ Chicken is so delicious and easy to make. The chicken is so creamy, and full of FLAVOR that takes this dish to a whole new level. I love having it on hand to make in recipes throughout the week.
If you do not have chicken on hand or want to make this meal even easier, you can use rotisserie chicken and add barbecue sauce to it. You could also chop up leftover barbecue chicken from a restaurant.
I love this dish for my kids because all of their needed nutrients are combined into one delicious bowl. This recipe is also one of my favorites because you can add or subtract ingredients according to what you have in your refrigerator that day.
BBQ Chicken Power Bowls are also perfect if you are meal prepping. I would portion out all of the ingredients separately and combine them right before eating. Everyone will be jealous of your delicious lunch.
