Mexican Chicken & Rice Bowl


Hi Everyone!!

I’m BACK! I’m back! I’m back…! I swear.

I know I have been just about the worst boyfriend in the world. I never called. Didn’t text. Taunted you with my yummy Lentil Farro Salad pics and then just took off.

You can crazy ex-style Facebook stalk the bejeezus out of me and you won’t find a trace of Whipped on the internet, in the fridge….I even forgot my password to log in to my own website!


So basically this is the point where I come crawling back begging you to please take me back! I started a new amazing job a few weeks ago and I have been deep in the trenches learning my way around a new position. I’ve been working like a crazy lady and loving every second! The only problem is that the most cooking I’ve done in the entire month of March is hard-boil some eggs. And not even well. They all cracked in the pot!


Today’s post is about having zero time to cook and wanting to eat like we had all day! Because I don’t care how busy I get, I LOVE food, and I LOVE cooking, and I love feeding my body well. And those are a few things I just won’t sacrifice.

My Mexican Chicken & Rice Bowl is seriously food for the soul. 6 ingredients, 25 minutes (start to finish) – this bowl of yummy tastes delicious and is so incredibly comforting. Freezes like a champ and tastes even better reheated at 2am on a Saturday night.


GUYS. It feels so good to be back cooking! Enjoy the recipe :)

  5. Kristina, that’s SO exciting about your new job!! Congratulations, sweet lady!! It’s incredible that you’ve found a job that you love, even if it means cooking got placed on the back burner. (And for the record, hardboiled eggs are harder than they look! When I first started, all I could make was soft-boiled. I turned off the heat too quickly!) I’m a huge fan of quick & healthy meals, so this rice bowl looks incredible! :)

  6. Welcome back!! What are you doing now? I’d love to know! I know how it is balancing a job and a blog! It’s tough! This looks like just the right dish for a busy day though! And delicious too!

  7. Nice recipe & so good to “see” you … This photo would look great at (hint/hint) :-)

  8. I’m so glad I found your blog – it’s so cute! I am so on this rice bowl trend…and this looks so flavourful! I’m loving mexican flavours.
