Sriracha Lime Chicken

Sriracha Lime Chicken Recipe

Since transitioning to “Fit Whit” over the last two months (AKA so much eating as a food blogger = need to hit the gym!) I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate healthy-er meals at home in between food blog recipes & eating out.

One of my favorite go-to, easy dinner meals is a burrito. Fill it with whatever goodies I have in the fridge, wrap it up in a giant tortilla and dig in!

While “Fit Whit” will not be giving up burritos anytime soon, I figured a great, easy, go-to alternative would be burrito bowls.

Whip up some delicious chicken on Monday, put it in the fridge, then use it in burrito bowls all week long. Enter: Sriracha Lime Chicken.

As I mentioned before, my original reason for creating this recipe was to make it into a burrito bowl, so I did!

I served the chicken over cilantro lime rice and topped it with black bean corn relish & avocado sauce.  O-M-G! It was so amazing!

I used a piece of chicken for each burrito bowl and ate burrito bowls for my next 4 meals (don’t judge me, this stuff is ridiculously delicious!) 😉
