Homemade Chicken Bowls

Remember that chicken recipe I shared yesterday for the homemade chicken “things.” Well here is a delicious way to use them in a meal.

The best part of this meal is that all of the parts can be made ahead and then assembled just before eating. Definitely stolen moments friendly!
