Delicious Chicken Bowl

My family and I love eating 'bowl meals' of all kinds. This is one of our faves and is so simple and quick to make.

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups of cooked white rice (or brown)
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 zucchini squash
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 1/2 cups of baby carrots 
  • 1 1/2 cups of broccoli
  • 4 eggs
Serving Size: 4-5

1. Season chicken on both sides with your favorite rub recipe or a store bought rub. We used McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb this time.

2. Cook chicken and slice into cubes when finished. We sometimes grill the chicken outside but this time I used the waterless cooking method and cooked it stove top.
(I just have to add that if you're in the market for new pans, I highly recommend surgical stainless steel cookware.  They can run for over a $1000 (or so I've heard) but my mother-in-law was able to get an incredible deal on Amazon. These were a gift from her last Christmas and  they have become my new best friends in the kitchen.)

3.  While chicken is cooking: Chop all the veggies. (If adding carrots and potatoes, boil them until fork tender after chopping.)

4.  Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray and add onion and bell pepper to pan. Cook until onion begins to soften. Add all other veggies and cook for about 5-7 minutes.

5.  Add eggs, chicken and rice and cook until eggs are done.

And here is this yummy dish in a bowl and ready to eat:
We like to add soy sauce in our bowl, but this is optional.

You can pretty much add or remove any ingredients to your liking.
Some other ingredients we like to use are:
*brussel sprouts
*Yellow squash
*green beans
*red bell pepper
*green onion

Thanks for stopping by. If you have a favorite 'bowl meal', please share your recipe. 
I'd love to try it. :)


  1. Yummy Lisa! That looks so delicious! I am actually on the 7th day of my Juice Diet and reading this post has been exceptionally hard for me. =) Good news though, counting the pounds I lost in Texas while I was there visiting, I've lost a total of 16 lbs! Yipee! Grandma's been sweet enough to cook for Alex and the kid's while we diet. Cooking is just too difficult, the smell of the food near drives you crazy when you haven't eaten in days. Will definitely try this recipe as soon as I'm able though. We do need to talk Lisa. It's been a while. We've also been busy with Alex here. Gotta make time soon k? Miss and love you lots!

  2. Looks yummy and easy, but my husband would take one look at the colorful veggies and ask, "So, what am I gonna eat?" :o) maybe if the veggies were minuscule?

    I tried to up date my blog a bit...but having issues with this ugly border on the two edges that i don't know how to get rid of.


  3. Lisa, This sounds yummy! I love how you showed pictures of all the details, they really help. I have been very busy lately but I read your email and will be responding tonight. Hope you guys totally recover from those sinus troubles soon.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Lisa! I checked out those other sites you mentioned and they are super awesome!
    I am ready to get back and add other things that i still need. I will try to keep updating regularly.
