Honey Lime Chili Chicken Bowls. Chili lime-seasoned chicken is roasted on a sheet pan with peppers and onions and served bowl-style with rice, slices of avocado, cilantro, and a dollop of yogurt (or sour cream)! To finish, drizzle each bowl with my honey-lime vinaigrette. This is the simplest dinner to make and comes together in under 45 minutes.

These bowls kind of remind me of burrito bowls, but I like them better. I ditched the beans (my least favorite ingredient), doubled the onions, and doubled the peppers. Instead of salsa, I used my favorite super simple honey-lime vinaigrette.

The only things missing were a handful of cheese and a side of chips, which I honestly added after the photos. You can never go wrong with some cheese and chips!

Aside from that, this is my perfect bowl.

Now that Memorial Day is on the horizon, I’ve definitely started to shift my cooking towards more summery recipes. Even though it’s not even close to summer outside over here, it’s okay. I can live through you all for a bit until I make it somewhere sunny and warm.

Right now, I’m embracing lighter, faster summer-style meals!

I made this all on a sheet pan, but you could easily grill the chicken, peppers, and onions too. That would be delicious as well!

Step 1: season up the chicken

I used chicken breasts for this bowl, but like always, you can use chicken breasts or thighs. It’s totally up to you and your preference.

Season the chicken with olive oil, honey, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and chili flakes to taste. To save dishes, do this all on a sheet pan.

Step 2: the vegetables

For the vegetable portion of this bowl, I went classic: onions and peppers. I actually ended up using both red and orange bell peppers, plus a green poblano. Use whatever mix you enjoy. I’m into orange peppers right now.

Then an onion, of course. I don’t think you can (or should) do a Mexican inspired bowl without a charred onion.

Roast the chicken, peppers, and onions all at once for 20 to 25 minutes. You want the peppers to start getting a little bit of a char on them.

Step 3: the honey-lime vinaigrette

While the chicken is cooking, I mix the vinaigrette. We’re taking a shortcut and using store-bought salsa verde mixed with olive oil, honey, and lime. The salsa verde makes for a delicious vinaigrette that feels a little more special.

Step 4: time to build your bowls

At this point, all you have to do is assemble. You’ll need cooked rice, avocado, cherry tomatoes, lots of cilantro, green onions if you’re into them, and some yogurt or sour cream.

Slide the chicken over a bowl of rice. Add the onions and peppers. Then I add thinly sliced avocado tossed with lime and sea salt, lots of cilantro, green onion, and a dollop of yogurt over each bowl. As I mentioned above, cheese would be especially delicious. I’d add lots of crumbled cheese. I love to use cotija, but feta or cubes of cheddar are great substitutes.

Top each bowl with the vinaigrette and maybe an extra sprinkle of sea salt. This will be a fun family dinner!
