Ingredient Notes Chile-Lime Chicken Quinoa Bowls:

  • Chicken – You can cook the chicken over the stovetop or grill it. Both options are great.
  • Quinoa – This carbohydrate is rich in protein, fiber, B vitamins and minerals. Quinoa is a great plant-based protein option for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Bell Pepper – For this recipe, you can either eat it raw or sauté it in the pan while the chicken rests. It just depends if you want the bell pepper to have some crunch or be crisp-tender. Either will work great here.
  • Chile Lime Seasoning Blend – This blend tastes great on pretty much anything! And it’s a crucial time saver, especially when you don’t have time to make your own chipotle seasoning or marinade.
