Fresh Mex Chicken Bowl

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Prep all your ingredients.

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.

Sauté the chicken, corn, beans, red pepper until heated through and red pepper is slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

As the mixture is heating measure ½ cup hot cooked rice into each of two bowls.

Spoon chicken mixture over the brown rice and top each bowl with 1/4 cup salsa, 2 tablespoons shredded Monterey Jack and avocado chunks.
