Chicken Burrito Bowl {Chipotle Copycat Recipe}

This Chipotle Copycat version of the Chicken Burrito Bowl is an easy, delicious recipe that is sure to be a huge hit in your home!

Do you love eating at Chipotle? I sure do, but I have found I can recreate many of the same dishes that I love so much at home. It’s not that difficult to recreate the same, authentic flavor for an easy, delicious weeknight dinner. If you’ve been to Chipotle before – and I’m guessing you have if you’re interested in a Chipotle Copycat Recipe – you will know that the components of a burrito bowl are typically individually scooped onto the plate. This makes prep at home fun and easy too.

The only thing I did to make my version of the Chicken Burrito Bowl a bit easier is not separate out the chicken, rice, corn and beans. I found it easy to just throw all those ingredients into the slow cooker. It’s my little secret shortcut, and it definitely saved me time. Instead of separately cooking the rice & chicken and then heating up the corn & beans, I simply threw them all into the slow cooker. When the time was complete, all the ingredients were cooked, heated throughout and ready to be plated.

I love slow cooker recipes, because they are so simple and convenient. I love throwing a bunch of (sometimes random) ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning and then enjoying a well-rounded, hot dinner in the evening. Easy peasy! So stress-free and simple!
