Make a hearty and healthy dinner in a bowl. I love this recipe since the real prepping and cooking is only grilling the meat and cooking the rice. All of the other toppings can be store bought or made ahead of time, making this an easy weeknight dinner to throw together. And with school around the corner, this is a great lunch to send with your kids
