Pepper Chicken & Rice

Pepper Chicken & Rice Jar (cauliflower rice works great if you are sticking to low carb and or low calorie)

Rice Bowls, Bento Bowls, Teriyaki Bowls, Quinoa Bowls…. They are all a great “go to” if your looking for a healthy dish when you are eating out.  I have a mouth watering recipe that is a great alternative to eating out.  It requires just a little time and effort at home and will allow you to eat healthier, spend less, and enjoy more time during the week.   The time and effort to prepare pays off all week long–  Your lunch and or dinners are ready in a matter of minutes!    This recipe is so good and all you need are a few healthy ingredients, and a few mason jars!

NOTE:  I use my Instant Pot to make the shredded chicken and if making beans from scratch I use my slow cooker (the instant pot has a slow cooker function but to be efficient I use both at the same time).  I’m not including the calories as it depends on how much of each item you use.  A good portion size  for one serving:  1/3 to 1/2 cup of each:  chicken, beans, and rice and total calories approximately 250-350 total.   The fresh ingredients are all low calorie so feel free to be generous.

When you are ready to consume:  Warm the jar w/ rice and beans and chicken and transfer onto plate.  Pour the fresh ingredients over the top and enjoy!   So easy, fresh, and delicious.   The portion is controlled so you won’t overeat.  Enjoy!
