Honey Chipotle Lime Bowls, I am crazy about!

Lunches are my constant nemesis. Once I get going for the day I like to check things off my list, and not worry about preparing, eating and cleaning up after food. But once in a while, I find a recipe I’m crazy about, and suddenly all the planning and prepping is WORTH IT! This is one of those recipes! Or, if you’re like me and like to focus on other things during the day, eat leftovers and make this for dinner! I found this recipe on Pinterest from one of my very favorite Instagrammers, Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I can always count on her meals being practical, delicious and a hit with my family. Pinterest is a great place to find new ideas with great photos to make you want to eat that food!

According to Mel, here are the essentials:
Cilantro Lime Rice
Chopped tomatoes
Romaine or spring greens

Spinach, lettuce or spring mix
Chopped tomatoes
Chopped or sliced avocado
Fresh limes
Cilantro lime rice
Cilantro lime dressing

Honey Chipotle Lime Chicken Bowls

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 5
Calories per serving: 150


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle peppers and adobo sauces (mostly sauce if you can)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
4 to 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt (i use coarse, kosher salt)
pinch of black pepper
2 pounds thin cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts (see note)

For the marinade, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, chipotle peppers and sauce, Dijon mustard, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper.

Place the chicken in a shallow dish or ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the top. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours (the flavor gets better the longer it marinades).

Cook the chicken on a grill, in a skillet or in the oven (broiled) until cooked through, probably 4-5 minutes per side, depending on how it's cooked. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.

Slice the chicken into strips and serve with any or all of the bowl ingredients. Cilantro lime dressing not optional. :)
