Week Day Lunches ~ Easy Burrito Bowls

We are starting the new year off with some mini goals. We are making an effort to not only bring lunches to work but also make them interesting and healthy; no boring sandwiches here. I had some inspiration after watching a video from Tasty on Buzzfeed. They posted a video on how to make chicken burrito bowls and they looked amazing. We modified the recipe to fit what we had on hand and they turned out great. We very easily made 4 pre made lunches for the week that are healthy and delicious. Here is what we did.

Grab a 9x13 inch baking dish 
Place 3 thawed boneless skinless chicken breasts in the center
Slice a red, yellow, and green pepper and red onion
Place the sliced peppers on one side of the chicken and the onions on the other side

Now pour approximately 2 tablespoons of olive oil over everything
sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of taco seasoning over the chicken (both sides)
sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste
and pour some of your favorite salsa over the chicken



Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.

cut up the chicken and add to your favorite lunch container over rice.
Add your any of your burrito favorites; black beans, corn, pico de gallo, guacamole or cheese.



You can divide this up into four different lunch containers and voila, easy healthy lunches for the week!
