Chipotle Rice Bowl Recipes

If you’re a Chipotle fan, then this recipe is for you! This Chipotle Chicken Bowl is insanely excellent. I might eat the grilled chicken all by itself. It’s that scrumptious! The SECRET to getting remarkable chipotle chicken is marinading with chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. That adobo sauce plays a big function in giving the chicken that smoky heat. I like to enjoy my burrito bowl with loads of garnishes and no tortilla (to save on calories).

Here’s what you’ll need

  • Boneless skinless chicken thighs– You can use chicken breast to make it healthier and less fat.
  • Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce- This can be found in the ethnic foods aisle. Normally in a can.
  • Cumin– The spice that you do not want to skip in this recipe.
  • Garlic cloves– Adds incredible fragrant tastes to the juicy chicken.
  • Salt
  • Olive oil– To avoid the chicken from staying with the grill.


  • Rice– Cooked wild rice or cilantro-lime rice, or plain white rice
  • Beans– Black beans and pinto beans are the most popular
  • Vegetables– Fresh avocado, lettuce, fajita vegetables, onion, or guacamole
  • Sauces– Salsa, pico de gallo, corn salsa, Mexican roasted salsa, sour cream, or salsa verde
  • Garnish– Usually, cilantro is the best garnish for Mexican dishes

How to make chipotle chicken bowls

In a large bowl, add the chicken thighs, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cumin, pressed garlic, salt, and olive oil. Use tongs to blend everything. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

Now fire up your grill to medium-high heat and prepare the chipotle marinated chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side.

As soon as the chicken is done, let it rest on a plate covered in foil. Chop it into pieces and serve with all your favorite burrito toppings.

Cooking guidelines

Storing– If you have leftovers, make certain to save the chicken separately from the lettuce the fresh veggies. Position the chopped chipotle chicken into a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. It should last as many as 4 days.
