    For some reason this recipe didn't come out that well for me. I think my brown rice came out too mushy. My boneless chicken pieces were 2-3" thick so I had to finish cooking them for 20 minutes @ 400 degrees in the oven after cooking them on top of the stove.

  2. I love this meal prep!!! It's so delicious I use it as a meal as well . Thank you

    Hey !
    please don't hate on me for this: I uploaded my first "what I eat in a day as a vegetarian/mostly vegan teen" video yesterday. It'd mean a lot to me if u guys checked it out ^^

  8. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED thank you!

  9. Just made this! I LOVEEEEE IT! So yummy and easy to make! The only thing I did differently was add the salsa on the chicken once it was sliced up in my bowls instead of baking it on top of the chicken. Also I did no cheese since I’m lactose! Will be doing this one again

    How many calories are in this?
    And what are healthier substitutes for some of the ingredients?
