Healthy Taco Chicken Bowl

First, I cancelled my internet service. Yep. You read that right...but don't worry, I'm going with another company tomorrow! :) My current provider tried to increase my monthly payment from $29.99/month to $54.99/month!!! When I called, they "met me in the middle" and offered $45.99/month. That's an extra $15/month, which equals out to $180/year!! For a while on the phone I was bluffing like "I want to cancel unless you can give me the $29.99/month deal for another year." But then when it came down to it, she wasn't I had to go for it. If my dad taught me one thing, it's always follow through on your threats you make to companies. Unfortunately for me, I have to get new internet. Haha.

I'm wrapping things up at my job right now (Thursday is my last day!!!) so it's pretty boring. But I guess that's good, because I'm not leaving the department with a lot of stuff to pick up when I leave. I cleaned out my cube which was fun! Oh, and 13 months after starting my job...they finally gave me a name tag hahaha. Last 4 days of work and people can finally see who I am from outside my cube. Good work. I hope I get an office at my next job...specifically one with a door. I've always wanted a door.

Okay, so this is what you're really here for, a delicious recipe! I've been slacking on creating new recipes but was inspired by my love of Chipotle with this one. Joe-Joe approved, which means man and child approved. It's healthy and will keep you full for the night an into the morning (aka my favorite kind of meal).
Healthy Taco Chicken Bowl

  • 3 chicken breasts (about 1.5 pounds)
  • 1 (16 oz) jar, salsa (make sure it's low sodium!)
  • 1 (15 oz) can, black beans
  • 1 bag (16 oz) frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups dry brown rice
  • 6 oz shredded, reduced-fat cheddar

  1. Add everything to crockpot except rice and cheese. Stir together well to make sure the chicken is coated in the mixture. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 hours while you're at work).
  2. 15 minutes before you'd like to serve, cook the brown rice according to directions on the package.
  3. Add cheese to crock pot and stir.
  4. Build Taco Bowl by layering rice (1/4 to 1/2 cup), then taco chicken mix (3/4 cup), then a sprinkle of cheese (and a dollop of nonfat Greek yogurt as "sour cream").
  5. Enjoy!
