BUDDHA BOWLS


Buddha, Buddha, Buddha!! I want to say that fast three times when I'm talking about these delicious bowls! So colorful! So delicious! You may have seen these bowls floating all around social media and I know I could not wait to give them a try since we've been on a healthy eating kick. However, I wanted to change ours up a bit so this is what I came up with.
Yum



Our boys were somewhat picky when they were younger but definitely not now and since our youngest is trying to get lean and strong for pre-football season, this was something I knew he'd love to try and he gobbled up every last bit which makes me know it's a huge hit! Heck, I could even eat these ingredients on a bed of spinach and not even have the rice.

 So Full of Flavor and Healthy antioxidants!

What you'll need

Buddha Bowls
Ingredients
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 large sweet potatoes
Sugar Snap pea pods
Spinach
Olive Oil
Ground Ginger
Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
Juice of 1 lime
Sesame Seeds
Brown Rice

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread sweet potatoes and onto a large baking sheet. Drizzle with about 1 -2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender. While sweet potatoes are baking, cook the chicken breast. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil and place chicken breasts in skillet. Sprinkle with the ground ginger, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook for about 6 minutes, turn chicken breast, sprinkle with more of the same ingredients and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes until the center of the chicken breast or no longer pink. Cool a bit and cut into pieces. Make the dressing by whisking together minced garlic, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey and lime juice until evenly combined. Whisk in sesame oil and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until smooth. Cook rice as desired and start to assemble bowls. After rice, place some chicken, sweet potatoes, sugar snap peas and spinach in each quadrant of the bowl. Drizzle with some of he dressing and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Makes about 4-6 bowls.
