Budget meal: Chicken rice bowls
April 26, 2012
I found this recipe on Pinterest recently gave it a try. Guess what? It was amazing.
Best of all? It's only costs $1.33 per serving according to Beth from Budget Bytes. I was so excited to find her blog, which is full of recipes that are budget-friendly. She breaks each one down and tells you how much it costs per serving so you can see what a great deal you are getting.
I've made chicken rice bowls before, as I'm sure you have. It's easy to throw all your leftovers together with some rice and make a meal of it. But something about this one tasted SO good (I think the secret is in all the spices used). I didn't really think it tasted like Chipotle as she suggested, but I think it might if I attempt to make Chipotle's lime cilantro rice and replace the cheddar cheese with mozzarella. Yum.
Side note: I didn't use the slow cooker because I didn't start it soon enough. Instead, I followed the directions and baked it at 350 for about 30-45 minutes.
Bonus: Beth says it freezes perfectly, so you can make extra and pull it out on a night when you're in need!
