Summary

A bounty bowl is a fancy way of saying “throw everything from your fridge together and serve it on top of rice." I love bounty bowls because they are so versatile and easy to adjust! If you don’t have black beans use pinto, if you have bell pepper in the fridge, chop it up and throw it in too. There are no limits to what you can add. But the best part about my Honey Lime Bounty Bowls is that they are healthy and delicious!

These babies are loaded with fiber, protein, potassium, and vitamins A, B, C, and more. Now just because these are healthy doesn’t mean they are flavorless, I don’t do flavorless. You will season each component of the dish then drizzle some light ranch dressing and sugar-free BBQ sauce on top! This is truly a bounty bowl fit for Demeter… the Greek goddess of the harvest, get it?

Ready in 30 Minutes or Less

Having healthy and delicious meals is not always enough, they need to be quick and easy to prepare too. I use Uncle Bens boil-in-bag brown rice because it’s quick, healthy and cleanup is a breeze! I also use canned corn and black beans, it’s the American way. Combine these kitchen shortcuts with fresh ingredients and you will be eating in no time! And if you’re smart you will have your kids help you make dinner, let me tell you why.

The 3 Reasons you Need your Kids in the Kitchen

Why would you want your kids in the kitchen slowing you down you ask? You are trying to hurry a probably starving right? Well, dinner time needs to be family time and here’s why;

  1. Cooking together is time to bond
  2. Your children will learn what to eat
  3. Your children will learn how to cook

Bonding in the Kitchen

Yes, your kids will probably make a mess and slow you down by “helping”, you’ll get over it. When you’re single you work all day then come home to make dinner, mow the lawn, do laundry, fix the sink spend time with your kids and… there’s only so much time in a day. It’s happened to me too many times, bonding with your kids is always the activity that’s easy to push aside. Combine cooking and bonding time into one! You might not get to play Monopoly (you’re welcome) but
you will still learn your child’s likes and dislikes. You could play “would you rather,” kitchen edition.

Would you rather eat squid or octopus? Would you rather take a cooking class from Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart? Would you rather eat at a diner or a fancy restaurant? Learn what your child might be willing to try or what they truly hate. Plus, as you are talking and laughing, they will have a safe space to let their guard down. This is a great time to ask about their crush
or something that has been bothering them. Food is an amazing way to heal wounds and create friendships.

Healthy Eating Habits

By watching you cook and eat, your child creates a base for their future eating habits. If you eat fast food every night that will be all your child knows. If you create healthy, fresh, flavorful meals the same thing, that will be all your child knows. Teach your kids how to eat healthy from a young age and it will stick with them as they get older.

Cooking Skills

My mom taught me everything I know about cooking and I am forever grateful! My dad also taught me little, like how to cook an egg. But these skills have served me in my life over and over again. When I w a poor college student, I was able to cook things with nutritional value to go with my Ramen Noodles… Kids need these cooking skills while they are young so they can develop healthy eating habits as they grow. If they only know how to microwave the chicken nuggets, that’s probably all they will eat.

So, gather your family together and make my super easy, super delicious Honey Lime Bounty Bowls for dinner tonight. Your kids will love the time they spend with you and their bellies will be happy and healthy! What more can a parent ask for?

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins

Ingredients
 14 oz Chicken – About 6 chicken tenderloins
 15 oz Black Beans
 15 oz Corn
 2 Bags of Uncle Ben's Boil-in-Bag Brown Rice
 1 tbsp Honey
 ¼ tsp Ginger
 ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
 ¼ tsp Onion Powder
 ¼ tsp Cumin
 1 Avocado
 1 Tomato
 1 Lime
 Olive Oil
 Salt & Pepper to Taste
 Light Ranch Dressing
 Sugar Free BBQ Sauce (my favorite is Stubbs)

Directions
1

Drizzle the chicken with 1 Tbsp of olive oil then add the honey, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and the juice from ½ of the lime. Mix it all together with some tongs.

2

Heat a large frying pan to medium heat and add the chicken. Cook it on each side for about 6-7 minutes then remove from the heat, cover with foil and set aside.

3

Cook the rice according to the package directions. I use the stovetop method but the microwave method would work as well.

4

When the rice is done, drain completely and put it in a bowl. Squeeze 1 tsp of lime juice over the top with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix.

5

Open the corn and black beans and add them to separate bowls. Microwave until warm, about 1 minute for each.

6

Slice the avocado into thin strips and dice the tomato.

7

To assemble the Bounty Bowl put 1 cup of rice at the bottom of a bowl. Top it with black beans, corn, 3.5 oz of chicken (about 1 ½ chicken tenderloins), and some tomato and avocado. Then drizzle your light ranch dressing and sugar-free BBQ sauce right on top. Add a lime wedge and enjoy!
