BBQ Chicken Bowls

I made the cilantro-lime rice and grilled chicken the other day, and I made too much...way too much. Then--after church Sunday a plan came to me with the leftovers and I came up with this, we all loved it. Somehow the picture looks a little onion-y, but we like onions so it worked. You can adjust how you see fit!

I roasted a red pepper, but you don't have to go to the trouble, a chopped bell pepper would be really good.

This is a rough recipe, I just sprinkled on the toppings to our liking so adjust as you like!

BBQ Chicken Bowls
makes 4-5 servings

1 recipe cilantro-lime rice
1.25 lbs grilled chicken breast
1/2-3/4 c. bbq sauce
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 can black beans, drained
1 c. frozen corn, thawed
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 roasted red pepper, chopped
cilantro, chopped

Chop the chicken and stir in the bbq sauce, adjust the amount to your liking. To assemble bowls layer rice, chicken, cheese, onion, black beans, corn and red pepper and garnish with cilantro.  Enjoy with a margarita to really kick it up!
