If the restaurant can prep this baby at fast-foodie-like speeds then gosh darn it we can too! The two things that take the longest (the rice and the chicken) can be prepped ahead of time if you love this dish and want to sneak it into weekly rotation (*cough*paul*cough*) and travels super well for work/school lunches. Rambling! So on to the cooking instructions!
Cook your yellow rice via your usual method. While it's cooking, decide what you want your protein to be.
For chicken, simply rub it with your favorite spices and toss it on the grill! Garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, salt/pepper and poultry blends make an amazing combo.
For hot delish veggies we tossed the black beans and mushrooms in a foil packet with a splash of olive oil and popped it on the grill for a few minutes! Foil packets are so freaking money... I always forget to make them but when I do, angels sing a little.They do! They sing "no mess! no clean-up!" and I shed a tear. You've made them before for veggies, right? They're awesome on the grill or in the oven. Let me know if you want me to do a foil pack-a-palooza post.
Ohmygosh this is the post of many rambles! Long story short, cook rice, cook protein, chop veggies, grate cheese and.... toss it all together! Pile the black beans on top of your sunny, colorful rice and pile on the veggies!
For the sauce, whisk together mayo, vinegar and spices and serve room temperature. You can dip your fork in it and then dig in to your chop chop or go ahead and drizzle it all over the place. Its divine!
My husband seasoned the chicken with poultry seasoning, freshly ground black pepper, and onion powder and tossed on the grill. For extra flavor and nutrients, I like to add turmeric and garlic powder to the spice rub.Crazy about the creamy curry sauce? We are too! Double it and pour it on everrrrything!Nutrition Facts below an estimate using an online recipe nutrition calculator. Adjust as needed based on personal measurements and enjoy!
