Copycat Chipotle Grilled Chicken

This chicken is filled with flavor and it’s just as good at the chicken from Chipotle, but it’s healthier and cheaper to make for a crowd. The key is to let is marinade for at least 6 hours to allow the flavor to really soak in.

I’ve used this chicken so many ways and it tastes amazing on all of them. You can use it on a salad, burrito bowl, tacos, a salad, or nachos. I usually do tacos or a burrito bowl, but I’ve never been disappointed eating it.

Cilantro lime rice is from Target. They recently changed the packaging, but it’s still the same product. I panicked when I thought it was gone! I just cooked this according to the directions on the package.⁣⁣

It’s not as pretty mixed up, but it’s still delicious!

Add whatever toppings you like. I recommend:⁣⁣
Sheet pan fajita vegetables (slice peppers and onions, spray with oil, and bake a 375 for about 20 minutes)⁣⁣
Tomatoes sprinkled with tajin⁣⁣
Black beans⁣⁣
Sour cream⁣⁣
Salsa and hot sauce⁣⁣
Guacamole (my avocados weren’t ripe when I made this)⁣⁣
Lime juice and cilantro⁣⁣
Anything you like!⁣⁣
