Okay friends, this supper was REALLY REALLY good! Like, I was surprised how much we loved it considering how simple it was to throw together. All I did was put a chicken spin on Andrea’s Pulled Pork and dinner was done! Bright, colorful, flavorful BBQ Chicken Rice Bowls.
And pssssst: we used brown rice with ours but you most certainly could use white rice or another grain (quinoa would work too!). Make it your own!
This recipe serves four.
1 pound of uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans of soda (we used Dr. Pepper…but you could use Coke or Root Beer too)
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (we love Sweet Baby Ray’s)
1½ cups of heated through corn (we just microwaved up some frozen corn)
2 avocados, chopped
about 8 green onions, chopped
about 4 cups of your favorite rice, cooked and ready to eat (we used brown rice)
In your slow cooker, place your chicken inside. Pour your soda on top of it and cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.
When you’re ready to eat, remove the lid of your slow cooker and pull out the chicken and place it in a large mixing bowl. Take two forks and shred it up. Stir in as much of the BBQ sauce as you like and stir in your corn.
Take each serving bowl and add about a cup of rice to each one. Top rice with your BBQ chicken and corn mixture. Then, top everything with diced avocado and chopped green onions. Serve.
That’s it! The rice, the chicken, the corn and the creamy avocado…it was perfection in a bowl!
