Chicken Nourish Bowl recipe


Chicken Nourish Bowl

This dish is so healthy, yummy and full of nourishing ingredients. It’s simple to make and super versatile so you can chop and change the veggies to what you have on hand. It’s a great way to get a diverse range of veggies in and that juicy flavorful marinated chicken just makes it that extra bit special! I have used millet for my grain of choice, but you can use quinoa, couscous, bulger wheat, rice, whatever tickles your fancy. This is summer in a bowl!
