Chipotle Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowl

4 servings


30 minutes

total time


1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast

¼ teaspoon salt

2 cups cooked quinoa

2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

1 cup canned pinto beans, rinsed

1 ripe avocado, diced

¼ cup prepared pico de gallo or other salsa

¼ cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese

Lime wedges for serving


Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat broiler.

Combine chipotles, oil, garlic powder and cumin in a small bowl.

Oil the grill rack (see Tip) or a rimmed baking sheet, if broiling. Season chicken with salt. Grill the chicken for 5 minutes or broil it on the prepared baking sheet for 9 minutes. Turn, brush with the chipotle glaze and continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes more on the grill or 9 minutes more under the broiler. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Chop into bite-size pieces.

Assemble each burrito bowl with 1/2 cup quinoa, 1/2 cup chicken, 1/2 cup lettuce, 1/4 cup beans, 1/4 avocado, 1 tablespoon pico de gallo (or other salsa) and 1 tablespoon cheese. Serve with a lime wedge.
