1 tbsp Olive oil (extra virgin)
½ tsp Garlic powder
½ tsp Cumin powder
1 pound Chicken breast, boneless and skinless
¼ tsp of Salt
2 cups Quinoa, cooked
2 cups Romaine lettuce, shredded
1 cup Rinsed canned pinto beans
1 chopped Ripe avocado
¼ cup Pico de gallo or other salsa
¼ cup Shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
Slices of lime for serving
Combine the chipotle, oil, garlic powder, and cumin in a small bowl.
- If broiling, oil the grill rack or a rimmed baking sheet. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken meat for 5 minutes or broil it for 9 minutes on the prepared baking sheet. Turn, brush with the chipotle glaze, and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes on the grill or 9 minutes under the broiler, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165 degrees F.
Transfer to a cutting board that has been cleaned. Chop into small pieces.
- Combine ½ cup quinoa, ½ cup chicken, ½ cup lettuce, ¼ cup beans, ¼ avocado, 1 tablespoon pico de gallo (or other salsa), and 1 tablespoon cheese in each burrito bowl. Serve with a wedge of lime.
To oil a barbecue rack, oil a folded paper towel and rub it over the rack using tongs. You should not use cooking spray on a hot grill.
