Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowl

BurritoBowlFood blogger Amy James gave me the recipe for this healthy and tasty dish that you can make with Pan Roasted Chicken leftovers. She created a week-long meal plan based on the roasted chicken, Lemon Herb Potatoes, and Oven-Roasted Farmers’ Market Vegetables. In addition to this burrito bowl she suggests preparing Rosemary, Feta and Potato Grilled Pizza, Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice and a Cobb Salad.
