    There are very few meals that I don’t eat from a bowl these days. Even when I eat dinner at my parent’s house, my mom knows to give me a shallow bowl to make my food in. I love that you can pack them with anything you want and it makes eating less messy since the food does fall off like it does on a plate, ya know?

    These Paleo Burrito Bowls though are my recent go-to for an easy homemade Chipotle-like meal. I crave Mexican food a few times a month and this bowl comes together in just 20 minutes and it hits the spot every single time.

    It is filled with organic leafy greens, cauliflower rice spiced with just the right amount of seasonings, pico de gallo, avocado and the most important part – the CHICKEN!

    You guys know I am all about Butcher Box and I use their meat all the time. We stock up on their organic free-range chicken, grass-fed beef and heritage pork each month. The whole chickens are by far mine and Jord’s favorite but when we want to make chicken a bit quicker, we turn to the chicken thighs or tenders like in this recipe.

    I personally like to bake them in the oven and not over the stove. Sometimes cooking chicken on the stove dries it out quickly, but by baking it, the chicken is able to marinate a bit in the avocado oil and spices and it comes out so juicy and flavorful.

    Using meats from a brand like Butcher Box, is what made me comfortable with eating meat again in the first place. They source all of their meats straight from the farms (no middle man!). And I have never had a bad piece of meat from them. Whether it’s the pork breakfast sausages, nitrate-free bacon or the grass-fed steaks, the have all be absolutely delicious. 

    It can seem like a lot to have a meat subscription service, but to be honest if you eat meat a few days a week and buy quality meat, the price you pay for Butcher Box is the same if not cheaper then buying meat at the local store. I have a designated freezer spot for all of our meats and simply defrost them in the fridge the day before cooking.

    Here are also a few of my other favorite recipes using what I order from Butcher Box: Oven-Broiled Wild Salmon Tacos and Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.  I cannot wait to hear what you guys think of these 20-minute Homemade Paleo Burrito Bowls and if you order Butcher Box. Let me know what you think!

    20-minute Homemade Paleo Burrito Bowls

    Total Time

    Ingredients

    • 6-7 ounces free range organic chicken (I used Butcher Box chicken thighs and breasts!)
    • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1 cup organic cauliflower rice (I bought frozen and already in rice form)
    • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 avocado, sliced
    • 1/3 cup chunky salsa or pico de gallo
    • 2 cups organic leafy greens
    • Tortillas or tortilla chips of choice

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking dish with parchment paper (mine was 12x5)
    2. Add the chicken to the baking dish and coat in spices and oil (wash hands well after handling chicken)
    3. Bake chicken for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked (no pink should be showing!)
    4. While the chicken bakes, make the cauliflower rice by adding it to a skillet with the seasonings and cook for about 5-10 minutes
    5. Once chicken is done, add a bowl with leafy greens, avocado, salsa, cauliflower rice and tortillas
    6. Enjoy while warm
