How To Make Grilled Citrus Chicken Bowls

Grilled chicken is a great source of protein for these zesty chicken bowls that come loaded with peas and carrots, and flavored with orange juice & zest.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 14 minutes
Marinate Time: 2 hours
Total: 2 hours 34 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • ¼cuporange juice
  • 3tbspolive oil
  • 2tbsplemon juice
  • 1tbspapple cider vinegar
  • 1tsporange zest
  • 1tspsalt
  • ½tspsugar
  • ¼tspblack pepper
  • 1lbchicken breasts,boneless skinless
  • 3cupsrice,cooked
  • 1cupcarrots,cut into matchsticks
  • 1cupsugar snap peas,cut in half
  • ½cupscallions,finely chopped

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together orange juice, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, orange zest, salt, sugar, and pepper.

  2. Place chicken in a zip-top bag and add 3 tablespoons of the citrus dressing. Seal bag and flip a few times to make sure the chicken is fully coated. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.

  3. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Take chicken out of bag and dab any excess marinade on a paper towel. If the chicken is dripping with marinade when it goes on the grill, chances are it will burn.

  4. Grill chicken 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and slice thinly on the bias.

  5. In a large bowl, combine rice, carrots, sugar snap peas, and scallions. Add 4 tablespoons of the citrus dressing and gently toss to combine.

  6. Serve chicken over rice and drizzle with remaining dressing, if desired.
