This grilled chicken bowl recipe is a delicious, easy to make healthy summer meal

I love this grilled chicken bowl recipe because it’s so easy to make and you can change it up by using whatever vegetables you have in your fridge. It’s also perfect for using up leftover chicken. I started making this grilled chicken bowl by seeing what I had in my fridge for something healthier but still tasty and filling.

I love vegetables but sometimes I get lazy and just make the same old thing like an easy salad. This time I wanted something different and I wanted it with grilled chicken and lots of veggies. I also wanted to have this grilled chicken bowl be a meal so I decided to have rice be the first layer of the bowl. You can use brown or white rice, I did white this time as we were out of brown rice which is what we usually use.

I always look for the label above when I buy our chicken as I only want chicken raised by a Canadian farmer.

Why do I only want chicken raised by a Canadian farmer?

There’s several reasons, to start we know our Canadian chicken is grain-fed, free of hormones and steroids, all are very important to us. ALL Canadian chicken farmers have to follow a strict and mandatory, audited Animal Care Program. That makes me feel confident when I buy chicken raised by a Canadian chicken farmer. If your store doesn’t carry it make sure to ask them about bringing it in and supporting family owned businesses as vver 90% of Canada’s chicken farms are family owned and operated.
