Fiesta Ranch Chicken Burrito Bowls piled with tender, marinated fiesta ranch chicken, cheesy one pot Cilantro Lime Rice with black beans, guilt free Chipotle Ranch Avocado Crema and all your favorite burrito fixins’. You are going to want a very big bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk Fiesta Ranch Chicken Rub ingredients together and rub evenly all over chicken breasts. Time permitting, allow chicken to sit 30 minutes at room temperature or refrigerate up to 8 hours then bring to room temperature for before cooking.*
When ready to prepare bowls, begin with Chipotle Avocado Ranch Crema by adding all the Crema ingredients to your blender and chopping then blending until smooth. Taste and add additional Ranch Mix, chipotle pepper, salt/pepper if desired. For a thinner consistency, add milk a tablespoon at a time. Chill in the refrigerator.
Prepare Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Beans according to directions HERE.
STOVETOP CHICKEN: Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing or dicing.
GRILLED CHICKEN: Grease and preheat the grill to medium heat, 375-450°F. Grill chicken undisturbed for 5-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. (An inserted thermometer should read 165 degrees F.) Remove chicken from grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
When rice and chicken is done, immediately divide among bowls and top with cheese (so cheese melts). Top with chicken, desired Garnishes and Chipotle Ranch Avocado Crema.
