These sweet chili chicken bowls are packed with goodies: mango chunks, guacamole and cashews! Ready in 30 minutes using slow cooker sweet chili chicken.
Note: this is part of a recipe series where I provide one base slow cooker recipe and provide three recipes to use it in! Here’s the base slow cooker sweet chili chicken recipe.
Well, here we are, at the very last recipe in this 3-in-1 slow cooker series. I’m always a little tired by the time we get to the fourth recipe of the week, and I really can’t believe some food bloggers are able to create and photograph four recipes in a week!! Cray cray.
But I really truly love doing these 3-in-1 slow cooker series because testing the recipes is so much fun! With the sweet chili chicken, I just kept ending back up with tropical flavors. It took all my will-power not to add a tropical fruit salsa on yesterday’s sweet chili chicken tacos.
But for today’s sweet chili chicken bowls, I haddddd to add a tropical fruit component. And the sweet mango absolutely makes these bowls!
Today’s sweet chili chicken bowls recipe is kind of a non-recipe. It’s just a big bowl full of delicious goodies, really! No dressing or anything (you don’t need it with the guacamole!)
I contemplated calling them burrito bowls. What exactly defines a burrito bowl? Does it need beans? Or just rice and guac?
Anywho think of these ‘bowls’ as a total blank template…swap the rice for quinoa, add in whatever veggies you’d like (bell peppers, grilled zucchini, shredded carrots, etc). Just don’t skip the mangoes…or the guac…or the cashews…or the sweet chili chicken. Mmm-kay?
The most time-consuming part of this recipe is making the rice. So that pretty much tells you that this is totally in line with the sweet chili chicken quesadillas and sweet chili chicken tacos. Aka: fast and ridiculously easy to prepare.
So. I’m hoping you enjoyed this latest 3-in-1 slow cooker series. I have a few more planned out, but I’m not totally sure when I’ll have time to execute them…probably not until October. In the meantime, feel free to check out all the other 3-in-1 slow cooker series I’ve done…I think this makes the 6th time I’ve done this!
Happy Saturday! See you on Monday with the most delicious peachy salad you ever will taste!
