Ingredients
  

For the Power Bowl

  • cups whole grains (measure dry, then cook) brown rice, quinoa or another grain
  • lbs chicken breasts about 3 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ½ tsp coarse salt
  • cups chopped red cabbage
  • 2 carrots peeled & shredded
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber

For the Peanut Sauce

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ lime juiced
  • tbsp sriracha, chili sauce or another hot sauce Taste the sauce, then add another ½ tbsp sriracha if you prefer it spicier.
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • ¼-⅓ cup warm water

Instructions
 

  • Cook the whole grains according to package instructions and set aside.
  • To make the peanut sauce, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, sriracha, ginger, and ¼ to ⅓ cup warm water. Set aside.
  • If you already have cooked chicken, use that (about 2-3 cups cooked chicken or another protein). If not, see how to cook chicken below.
  • To make the chicken, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Stir together 1 tablespoon olive oil with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt. Spread over both sides of the chicken breasts, put on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and cook for 20 to 22 minutes or until done (165 internal temperature). Once cooled down, chop or pull chicken for the bowls.
  • To make the bowls, divide the grains between the bowls and then top with red cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, chicken, peanut sauce, and mint.

Notes

If you put the peanut sauce in the fridge, when you remove it, the sauce may need an extra tablespoon of warm water to thin it again to your desired texture.
