Now, my Chicken Buddha Bowl with Spicy Mango Sauce.
What exactly is a Buddha bowl, you may ask?
Generally, it’s a combination of: Grains, Protein, Veggies, and Toppings/Dressing. I swapped out the grains for spinach and kale, but this bowl is awesome with some cooked white rice, too!
I love it because it’s customizable to what you have on hand, and absolutely anything and everything is awesome with this Spicy Mango Sauce on top!
If you have a rotisserie chicken made, chop it up and use that. Have no chicken made? Dice, marinade, and cook in a skillet. The options are endless and all results in a delicious and nutritious meal.
