Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl

Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl

Easy Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl made in one pan dish! It’s a simple chicken, black bean and rice Tex-Mex style dish that’s brimming with well seasoned, fresh flavor. With it’s simplicity and satisfying flavor it’s destined to become a new go-to dinner!

One Pan dinners are a breeze to prepare, and clean-up is what we wish every dinner to be like, and when everything cooks in one pan all those flavors come together so perfectly – each ingredient seasoning the next. This simple one pan rice bowl does not disappoint! It’s made with tender brown rice, lean protein-rich chicken, crave-able Mexican spices and fresh cilantro, mildly sweet bell pepper, smokey fire roasted tomatoes, creamy black beans and melty cheese (because who can resist a little finishing touch of cheese even if it’s not traditional to fajitas? Perfect upgrade).

Not only does this make a delicious dinner but it also is perfect for meal prep (it makes plenty so you can have it for dinner and likely some left for lunch). And if you want to make it healthier you can just omit the cheese.It’s likely to become one of those dinners even the kids will request!
