This Buffalo Chicken Rice Bowl is healthy, tasty and great for meal prep. It’s made with lots of veggies, tender chicken breast, rice, buffalo sauce and blue cheese.
You know I'm the queen of "throw everything in a bowl" recipes. Some of my favorites are my Cooked Salmon Poke Bowl, Ground Turkey Egg Roll in a Bowl and Mediterranean Quinoa Bowls with Tahini Dressing.
I love this one because it's super different. I've never seen a recipe like this before.
I'm obsessed with all things buffalo. You know I use my Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce all the time. So, naturally, I had to make a "throw everything in a bowl" recipe featuring some buffalo sauce.
Not only is this bowl super flavorful, it's also filled with protein, healthy fats, and carbs. Super well balanced, in my opinion!

Meal Prep this Recipe!
This is an awesome meal prep recipe. Simply, make the chicken and rice in advance. You can leave the chicken stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days.
To make my life even easier, I use frozen cooked rice so I just have to microwave it right before I make my bowl. The day you're going to enjoy the bowl, assemble all of the ingredients.
Alternatively, if you're going to meal prep this to take on the go, you can put the bowl together with all of the ingredients except for the buffalo sauce. Store the assembled bowl in an airtight container in the fridge. Store the sauce separately and pour over when you're ready to enjoy.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 6 cups spring mix

- 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
- Place the chicken breasts into a bowl. Add ½ tablespoon olive oil and spices. Massage all chicken with your hands to make sure the the spices are evenly distributed.
- Heat a skillet on medium with ½ tablespoon olive oil. Add the chicken to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.
- Set the chicken aside to rest as you assemble the bowls. Grab two bowls. Place half the amount of each ingredient into each bowl.
- First, place the spring mix on the bottom and then the slaw mix. Slice your chicken breasts and add them on top. Next, add the cooked rice, blue cheese and buffalo sauce.
- Optional: Add ranch dressing on top. I love THIS one from Primal Kitchen!
