If you’re a Chipotle fan, this recipe is for you! These chipotle chicken bowls are outrageously good. I could eat the grilled chicken all by itself. It’s that delicious! The secret to getting amazing chipotle chicken is marinating with chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. That adobo sauce plays a huge role in giving the chicken that smoky heat. I like to enjoy my burrito bowl with loads of toppings and no tortilla. My husband on the other hand needs his tortilla. So I just make it into a burrito for him. It’s personal preference at that point, so make it whichever way you prefer. 

 

Ingredients for the chicken marinade: 

3 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs 

1 (7 oz) can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, roughly chopped 

1 tsp ground cumin 

1 1/4 tsp salt

2 garlic cloves, grated 

3 tbsp olive oil

Remaining ingredients:

2 cups cooked brown rice

1 (15 oz) can black beans

2-3 avocados

Iceberg lettuce 

Salsa

Sour cream

Instructions:

1 . In a bowl, combine chicken thighs, chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (with the sauce), cumin, salt, grated garlic, and olive oil. Mix thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 

  

2 . Once the chicken has been marinated, grease your grill and bring the temperature to high heat. Grill both sides of the chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side. 

3 . Let the chicken cool slightly, and chop into small pieces. 

4 . Build your burrito bowl with your desired amount of brown rice, black beans, avocado, chopped lettuce, salsa, and sour cream. Eat fresh.
