- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the chicken is done, slice it into strips and place it on top of the rice and veggies in each bowl.
- Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves for a burst of color and freshness.
