This healthy and easy recipe is a great one to prepare ahead and then just place all of the ingredients in a bowl and watch the surprise at the impressive look and taste of this delicious dish.

Getting started
2

Start by preparing the marinade. In a small bowl add all the marinade ingredients and whisk until well combined.

3

Place chicken into an airtight container or large freezer bag pour in the marinade.

4

Seal and shake to coat the chicken really well with the marinade. Refrigerate for 2 hours up to overnight.

5

When you're ready to cook your chicken, add oil to a large saucepan and heat over medium-high heat.

6

Add in the chicken and cook until nicely browned, stirring occasionally, for about 10-12 minutes.

7

While your chicken is cooking, you can prepare the rest of the ingredients for the bowls.

8

Cook the rice. Chop the lettuce and mash the avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice.

9

Divide the rice equally among 4 serving bowls, or meal prep containers, then add in lettuce, beans, cheese and chicken as shown.

10

Add salsa and guacamole on side.
