Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup mixed bell peppers, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Begin by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, fresh orange juice, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, lemon zest, orange zest, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through and nicely charred. Discard the marinade.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the bowls. Divide the cooked brown rice among four bowls and top with diced bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.
  5. Once the chicken is done, slice it into strips and place it on top of the rice and veggies in each bowl.
  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves for a burst of color and freshness.
  7. Serve your Zesty Citrus Chicken Bowls immediately, and savor every bite of this citrus-infused delight!
