Mexican-Style Chicken and Rice Bowl

Mexican-Style Chicken and Rice Bowl
Total Time:
30 minutes


1 (8-oz) package cilantro-lime (or white) rice
2 1/4 cups water, divided
3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
2 chicken fillets (about 1 lb)
1/2 cup fajita skillet sauce
1 can seasoned black beans, undrained (15–16 oz)
1 package chipotle cheddar salad kit (11–13 oz)
1 cup mango salsa (optional)


  1. Prepare rice following package instructions (using 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon oil).
  2. Preheat large, nonstick sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place remaining 2 tablespoons oil in pan; add chicken and cook 2–3 minutes on each side until browned.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; pour in skillet sauce and remaining 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook 8–10 minutes, gently shaking the pan occasionally, or until sauce has thickened and chicken is 165°F. Meanwhile, cook beans following microwave package instructions.
  4. Cut chicken into bite-size slices. Toss salad greens with dressing from kit (reserve salad kit toppings). Assemble bowls by placing about 1 cup rice in center of each bowl, then arranging the following in small piles around the rice: beans, tossed salad greens, and chicken. Top rice with mango salsa (if using) and reserved salad kit toppings. Serve.
