Ingredients

The Bowl

  • 0.5 lb Asparagus, chopped
  • 1 pinch kosher salt & black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

The Dressing

  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  • Pre-cook brown rice according to packet instructions and set aside to cool. 
  • Spray a skillet with non-stick spray and set heat to high. Add the asparagus to the skillet and cook for roughly 8 minutes until the asparagus is tender but still has a little crunch. Set the asparagus to one side.
  • Using the same skillet, re-spray the pan and set the heat to medium on your stove. Season both sides of your chicken with garlic powder, oregano and salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. 
  • Whilst your chicken is cooling make your dressing. In your food processor, add mayonnaise, yogurt, basil, parsley, chives, lemon juice and garlic. Pulse until smooth then season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Assemble the bowls. Start by dividing the rice evenly between 4 bowls. Top with the avocado, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, sliced avocado and cooked chicken. Pour the dressing into a measuring jug and then split evenly 4 ways.  Serve & enjoy!

Notes

To really bulk out this bowl throw in some leafy greens or cruciferous veggies like brussel sprouts or broccoli. I highly recommend steaming 400g of collard greens and dividing equally to fill out the base of each bowl. You can also substitute brown rice for quinoa. The options and variations are endless!
