There is SO much flavor in these Chipotle Chicken Bowls with Pineapple Salsa! The perfect mix of spicy and sweet in this tasty meal!
Servings 2 People
For the bowls
- 1 Medium Sweet potato, cubed (about 150-170g)
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil, divided
- 1/2 Lb Chicken breast
- 1/2 tsp Cumin
- 1/4 tsp Garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp Onion powder
- 1/4 tsp Chipotle chili powder
- 1/4 tsp Paprika
- Sea salt
- 1/4 Cup Whole30 approved BBQ Sauce (I used Primal Kitchen Unsweetened)
- 2 Medjool dates, sliced (omit if your BBQ sauce is sweetened)
- 1 Medium Avocado, diced
For the pineapple salsa:
- 1 1/4 Cup Pineapple, roughly chopped
- 1/4 Cup Cilantro, diced
- 2 Tbsp Red onion, minced
- Juice of half a lime (plus more for serving)
Heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Toss the sweet potato with 1/2 tbsp of the oil and spread onto a baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 mins, until fork tender.
Mix all the spices together in a bowl and coat the chicken breast, sprinkling with salt.
Heat the remaining 1/2 tbsp of oil in a medium, oven safe pan on high heat. Once hot, sear the chicken breast on both sides until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to the oven and cooked until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees F, about 15-20 mins
While everything cooks, place the bbq sauce and sliced date in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until hot, about 1 minute. Place into a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups) and process until the date is broken down (a few little chunks is ok.) You will have to stop and scrape the sides down often.
Stir together all the pineapple salsa ingredients.
Dice the chicken and divide between two bowls, followed by the sweet potatoes, pineapple salsa and bbq sauce. Finally, dice the avocado and divide between bowls.
Mix it all together and DEVOUR!
