Grilled Chicken Cilantro Lime Rice Bowl is an easy recipe your whole family will love made with Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice!
Winner winner chicken dinner! Who else loves simple meals that you can put together in a hurry? Well then you've come to the right place! I'm a busy mom that loves to bake, but to be honest, I'm not the best cook. But I do want to provide healthy, delicious meals for my family. This Grilled Chicken Cilantro Lime Rice Bowl is definitely a winner.
My husband and I teamed up to bring together this tasty meal. He grilled the chicken on the barbecue while I made the rice and prepared the veggies. It's always fun to have a helper in the kitchen, especially when he's excellent at grilling! Thanks, Jay!
The star of this show is Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice. Have you ever tried Vigo Rice? Our family has been enjoying Vigo Yellow Rice for many years. It's been a staple in our house for a very long time. We have it almost every week. I was excited to try the Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice. I found it at my local Publix Supermarket here in Atlanta, GA or you can Shop Vigo’s Online Store.
It's just as easy to make as the yellow rice. Simple boil 2 cups of water, add 2 tablespoons of oil or butter, bring to a boil, add the rice and stir for a minute. Then place a lid on top, turn down heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Easy peasy! It comes out light and fluffy with a wonderful cilantro lime flavor.
Try all the flavors! Vigo Foods has so many yummy flavors to choose from like Vigo Mexican Rice (a yellow rice and corn with a taco like taste), Vigo Black Beans & Rice (Cuban fare made easy) or Vigo Red Beans & Rice (an authentic version of the New Orleans classic). In addition to rice, Vigo also offers Vigo Italian Style Seasoned Bread Crumbs (the only ones made with imported Pecorino Romano Cheese) and Vigo Saffron (a traditional flavoring of many European dishes, such as French Bouillabaisse, Spanish Paella, and Milanese Risotto).
I thought Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice would be the perfect canvas for this rice bowl recipe. And it truly is! I love that it's gluten free, has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and no added MSG. This is an extra bonus for us since my daughter can't have gluten.
Making this dish is so simple. Simply grab a bowl and start adding everything. Start with a scoop of Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice, then add black beans, chopped tomatoes, chopped grilled chicken, chopped fresh cilantro, and cheddar cheese. Squeeze lime juice on top.
Then drizzle with your favorite Ranch dressing. I used Chipotle Ranch dressing. Grab a fork and dig in. You can also add corn if you like.
My husband and son especially loved this dish. I hope you will try my Grilled Chicken Cilantro Lime Rice Bowl. If you enjoyed this recipe, be sure to share it on social media.
