Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe | Mexican Burrito Bowl

Chipotle chicken burrito bowl recipe with step by step preparations & photos. Chipotle is one of the famous Mexican restaurants in America. We used to eat in this restaurant when we came to America. In Indian food, we used to have rice in most of the meals. Because of that, I feel this chicken recipe is also somewhat related to our Indian food. So this chicken burrito bowl also became one of my favorite Mexican food and I like the flavor of Mexican dishes.

The chicken burrito bowl is the simple & easy one to make at home for the lunch. This also one of the best lunch box recipes too. I just tried to make that chicken bowl like that restaurant taste. It has come out well nearly like how I was tasted in the restaurant. So I shared the recipe here. This recipe includes cooked rice with butter, red or kidney beans, fried or baked chicken breast, cooked corns, lettuce or coriander leaves, onions, tomatoes and sour cream.

1. For preparing cooked rice, take 1 cup of brown rice or white rice in a bowl, wash & soak in water for 20 to 30 minutes. Then add the soaked rice along with 2 cups of water and salt in a pressure cooker. Wait for until 1 whistle. Switch off the flame and let the steam subsides completely. Now, open the cooker and fluff it gently. You can also cook the rice in an open pot method instead of using the pressure cooker.

Measure 2 cups of cooked rice in a bowl, little coriander leaves & add 1 tbsp of butter. The heat from the rice melts the butter.
