Easy Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowl With Lifestyle Influencer Alice Mungadzi

We asked Lifestyle Influencer Alice Mungadzi to share one of her favourite recipes for today’s Tasty Tuesday! 

Burritos can definitely be a guilty pleasure, especially when you have them at a fast-food place. However, just because they are deliciously unhealthy, doesn’t mean that they can’t be health as well. Making your favourite fast-food recipes at home is a healthier choice as you can control the portion size, the amount of sugar and salt, lastly you can substitute ingredients for healthier alternatives. Eating healthy should be fun and delicious, not bland and unpleasurable. This recipe is super easy to follow and most ingredients can be found at your local shop.

  • Boneless chicken thighs or chicken breast (can also substitute for tofu)
  • Paprika
  • Lime
  • Garlic Powder
