Quick Lemon Chicken Broccoli Bowls
I’m taking the stress out of dinner for you and you won’t believe how easy this dinner comes together. The ingredients are simple and the preparation is so quick and easy. The flavor is crazy- delicious and it’s a meal that I feel good about feeding my family.
I’m always saying that my guys would just as soon have meat and potatoes and skip the veggies but I didn’t hear a single complaint about this dinner that is packed with veggies! Maybe I’m winning them over.
I picked up a few simple ingredients at Kroger that make this dinner the easiest and most delicious! Tyson Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breasts and the incredibly flavorful Wish-Bone EVOO Lemon Herb Dressing.
I found the TortillaLand Flour Tortillas in the refrigerated section, near the Mexican cheese. You are going to love these authentic tortillas for more than this dish, believe me!
I added carrots, broccoli and water chestnuts into the mix and served it over brown rice.
I added some creative toppings of toasted sliced almonds, fresh cilantro and crispy TortillaLand Tortillas topped with a few black sesame seeds.
I wasn’t sure what my family would think of this dinner. I have seen lots of rice bowls while perusing Pinterest and in pages of food magazines. Honestly, I thought it would be intimidating. It wasn’t at all. Seriously, this dinner comes together in about 30 minutes.
When my guys hit the door for dinner, they are ready to eat. Most days I am busy on the computer or doing paperwork and often times I forget to make a dinner plan. Isn’t that half the battle when it comes to dinner? Just deciding what to cook and find something that everyone will eat can be a huge hurdle.
I’ve been keeping several varieties of Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken in my freezer to help out on those busy days. It saves my sanity and makes getting dinner on the table in a reasonable amount of time possible.
This was the first time I had tried Wish-Bone EVOO Lemon and Herb Dressing. I had tried other varieties that were really flavorful but this one is my favorite so far. Since the Wish-Bone dressing has been discontinued, I have been making my own version. I am including that in the recipe card.
How to Make Lemon and Herb Dressing:
Combine olive oil, fresh rosemary, grated onion, garlic, honey, lemon juice, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Whisk to combine.
I have so many ideas for dishes where it will be the perfect compliment. I love all things lemon and the lemon flavor really shines through and brightens this dish.
I began by preheating the oven and got the brown rice started. I chopped the carrots next. Then I added the Lemon and Herb Dressing and the Tyson Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breasts to a skillet.
I steamed the veggies in about the same amount of time. I toasted the almonds and the tortillas when the oven preheated.
I added rice to the bowls and topped it off with a good portion of the lemon chicken, steamed veggies, toasted almonds, fresh cilantro and crispy tortillas.
I served it with the remainder of the Wish-Bone EVOO Lemon and Herb Dressing. I was impressed and I would say my family was also. There was not one bite left. Not one bite! I had the whole family here and it fed the six of us.
