Chicken Burrito Salad Bowl – WLS Recipes

 

Chicken Burrito Salad Bowl. Low carb and great after weight loss surgery!

Goodness I had a hard time thinking of a name for this dish. There are some key points about this meal I want to get across:

1. It’s ridiculously easy.

2. It’s insanely flavorful.

3. It’s low-carb and great for bariatric patients.

I didn’t know how to get that across. “Super Easy Flavor Packed Chicken Taco Salad” was a close runner up :)

Here is the most important thing to know about this meal. It’s all about the chicken. Here’s the second most important thing to know about this meal: the chicken has only two ingredients. 

The cats out of the bag. I heavily sprinkled taco seasoning on all sides of my chicken breast and patted the seasoning into the meat just like a rub. Then I tore up some leafy romaine, wedged a few Roma tomatoes, sprinkled some chopped cilantro and put a generous dollop of fat-free plain Greek yogurt.

To take it one notch higher on the “easy scale” I made my chicken in the microwave with my Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker ($88). It’s stoneware so it keeps the moisture locked in and cooks the chicken in about 16 minutes. I also used my Pampered Chef Salad Choppers ($27.50) to dice up the chicken really fast. You can also bake the chicken or use a slow cooker. 

This meal is PERFECT for a night you’ll be getting home late. Plan ahead and have the ingredients in the fridge and you’ll be happy!
