  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 3 cups white rice cooked
  • 1 large bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 large hearts of Romaine lettuce
  • 3 limes


  • 2 tablespoons dry ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 tomatillo
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Suggested toppings:

  • Pico de gallo
  • Cilantro
  • Guacamole
  • sour cream
  • Lime wedges
  • Cheese


  • Slice large chicken breasts in half horizontally and pound so that each breast is evenly thick. Salt and pepper the chicken pieces on both sides.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the taco seasoning and white flour. Dredge each chicken breast in the mixture.
  • Heat a large, non-stick skillet to medium-high heat and add the butter.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the chicken in a single layer to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes on one side and then flip to the other side and cook for another 4-6 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Set aside and when cool enough to handle, chop into bite size piece.
  • Stir in the juice of one large lime and 3 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro to warm, cooked rice. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat black beans. Add additional seasonings per taste.
  • Heat a medium sized skillet over medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once heated, add corn, and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly charred, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the lime juice and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • Chop lettuce into small, thin strips.

Prepare the dressing:

  • Zest and juice one lime. Add the juice and zest to the blender along with the prepared ranch seasoning mix, minced garlic, chopped tomatillo, ⅓ of the bunch of cilantro, ½ of jalapeno (seeds removed for less heat), mayo and sour cream. Blend until completely smooth.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.

Build the bowls:

  • Divide ingredients among 6-8 bowls.
  • Add additional toppings: pico de gallo, cilantro, guacamole, sour cream, cheese and lime wedges, Drizzle the dressing evenly over the bowls.
