This is Bacon and Chicken Bowl Recipe a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Success® Rice.
It’s Summer ya’ll!!! Woot! And yes, it’s hot, hot, hot already here in Vegas in case you’re wondering. Ethan’s got a full dance card of activities, and I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen when we can hit up the new water park. There’s stuff to do! So, I need to come up with some light and yummy dinners. Using all those fresh veggies that are now in season – full of flavor and color! Are you growin’ your own? (no, not that kind of grow your own, stop) I came up with this Bacon and Chicken Bowl Recipe to slow my roll a bit. I was asked to get adventurous in the kitchen using some of the rice varieties available through Success® Rice. Of course I was all like ‘Sweet! Easy, quick but still yummy. I’m down with that!” And the Bacon and Chicken Bowl Recipe our favorite restaurant makes isn’t to complicated at all. So, I gave it a whirl. Yep, I’m totally sharing it with you too. So, you’re welcome!
Bacon and Chicken Bowl Recipe Ingredients:
- 2 Small Chicken Breast (diced)
- 4 Pieces Bacon
- 1 Bag of Success Boil-in-Bag Brown Rice
- 2 Garlic Clove (crushed)
- 4 Cups Baby Spinach
- 1/2 Cup Red Bell Pepper (chopped)
- 1/2 Cup Yellow Bell Pepper (chopped)
- Olive Oil
- Salt, Pepper & Garlic Salt (to taste)
Bacon and Chicken Bowl Recipe Directions:
Let’s kick this off by preheating oven to 400°. Place bacon a cooling rack and place rack on cookie sheet and bake until crispy. Remove from the oven and place on paper towel to cool before slicing. While that’s getting all bacon-y, crispy, yummmmm because, BACON!! Let’s get the chicken bowl recipe started!
Chop up those sweet and colorful peppers, crush up your garlic and dice up that chicken breast. I made the pieces of chicken into nice bite sized pieces. No need to chop up all that spinach. It will shrink up nicely once we put that in the pan to cook in a minute. Coat bottom of frying pan with olive oil and heat it up on medium temp. Throw in your chicken and cook with the crushed garlic, salt and pepper until golden and cooked through.
Here’s where this gets super easy and a success every time! Set a pot to boil and place 1 pouch of Success Boil-In-Bag Brown Rice in once you have a nice rolling boil. Let it go for 10 minutes and BAM! Done. Perfect every time and super quick, right? I seasoned the rice with some garlic salt, kosher salt and pepper. I think next time, I’ll add a dash of crushed red pepper into the mix and make a spicy bacon and chicken bowl recipe!
Once the chicken has cooked, mix in the chopped bell peppers and stir them around for about 2-3 minutes. Add in your spinach (this will will be a serious heap! It’s ok!) Spinach heap will shrink as you stir until wilted. (Cooking Tip: if you need extra moisture, add a dash of chicken stock). Chop up that bacon that’s been off draining. Combine chicken mixture with the chopped bacon and allow to heat through. Done! To serve, spoon rice into serving bowls and top with the chicken and bacon mixture. Serve immediately.
Typically, I cook up brown rice in chicken stock and it takes what? Like 1/2 hour, 45 minutes probably… I really enjoyed testing out the boil-in-bag and now that we have fun Summer stuff on the calendar to do, I’m going to grab a few boxes for the pantry! And, there’s 4 varieties so we can whip up different dishes too! Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice, Success® White Rice.
