This Asian Ground Chicken Bowl is easy to make, paleo, gluten-free and has a keto option. Also it’s crazy good, ya’ll.

The other day I was thinking of what to make for dinner. I had gotten up at 5am to go to a Yoga Sculpt class (basically yoga with cardio and weight and it kicks your ass). Then I worked until 3pm. Then I took my kids on a walk, went to the park, changed two diapers and chased my kids while they sped away from me on scooters.

It was roughly 5:13pm and I thought, “Well shit I’m tired and really don’t feel like making dinner.”

Then I strongly considered ordering Chipotle.

But then I remember I had ground chicken in the fridge. And ground chicken is EASY. It’s versatile, it cooks up in a matter of minutes and it fully absorbs whatever sauce you add – making saucy lil’ chicken bites.

I was feeling Chinese food, so I decided to give this some Asian flair.

I steamed some frozen broccoli – which I literally always have on hand. And I microwaved some frozen organic rice.

YEAH, I MICROWAVED.

I buy the organic frozen Jasmine rice from Whole Foods because it’s easy and convenient and delicious. And because I can’t make rice that good, and certainly not in the two minutes it takes to microwave.

Don’t judge me. Just buy microwave rice and thank me later.
