Baja Chicken Bowl – Inspired by Panera’s Warm Grain Recipe

Whenever I am out and about and want to eat a warm, healthy lunch, I always turn to Panera Bread&rsquos Baja Chicken Bowl.

This dish starts off with thin slices of chicken served over a bed of cilantro lime rice and quinoa. It is then topped with bean and corn salsa, salsa verde, diced avocado, and grape tomatoes. And then feta cheese and Greek Yogurt is garnished on top.

Baja Chicken Bowl prepared and ready to eat.

A delicious and healthy meal that will keep you feeling full for hours.

However, now that we are spending more time at home, I haven&rsquot had a Baja Chicken Bowl in weeks. And I can&rsquot get the craving for this light and refreshing meal out of my mind!

Therefore, I decided to take matters in my own hands and make this delicious recipe right in my own kitchen!

Baja Chicken Bowl Recipe

As stated above, this recipe is served over rice and quinoa. However, instead of cooking the rice and quinoa at the same time as the chicken, we make it ahead of time.

The base of the Baja Chicken Bowl is a mixture of two grains &ndash cooked rice and quinoa.

Then all that is required is to reheat it when you are ready to serve your Baja Chicken Bowl.

To make the two grains follow the instructions on the back of the package. Or, if you have a pressure cooker, make it even easier on yourself and make Instant Pot White Rice and Instant Pot Quinoa.

Slice the chicken breast into small strips and sprinkle with Adobe seasoning.

We always make extra and store in our refrigerator for an easy addition to any meal whenever we need one.

Next, it is time to cook your chicken. Cut a large chicken breast into small, bite size strips. Sprinkle with Adobe Seasoning or a seasoning of your choice.

Then cook in a hot skillet just until cooked through. Use a digital food thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reads 165°F.

Once the chicken is cooked through add it on top of the warm grains.

Assemble The Bowl

To arrange the Baja Chicken Bowl place the chicken on top of the heated rice/quinoa mixture. Then add the black bean and corn salsa, tomatoes and avocado to the bowl.

*You can purchase Black Bean and Corn Salsa in larger grocery stores. However, it is easy to make your own as well with cooked black beans, cooked corn, diced red onion, cumin, and cilantro.

Layer your bowl with the black bean and corn salsa, tomatoes and diced avocado. And for me you can never have too many red onions!

Top the rice bowl with Salsa Verde, Feta crumbs and Greek Yogurt.

Although, if you are like me and can&rsquot eat dairy products, you can simply leave them out of the recipe. The Baja Chicken Bowl still tastes amazing!
