Low carb burrito jar

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 4 tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 4 sachets (400g) Zero Rice
  • 1 200g tin sweetcorn (drained)
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 heads little gem lettuce (chopped)
  • 8 tbsp. soured cream
  • Spring onions to garnish

Method

1. Cut chicken breasts into cubes, season, and pan fry on a medium heat with a little coconut oil until fully cooked through. Remove and allow to cool.

2. Cook the rice. Rinse under cold water, and then cook for either 1 minute in the microwave or 2-3 minutes in a pan. Set aside and allow to cool a little.

3. Assemble your mason jars. Divide and drop in the chopped tomatoes and onions, lime juice and a little salt and pepper and mix. Add 2 tbsp. soured cream to each jar. By adding the liquid first, you won’t get a soggy salad after a few days in the fridge.

4. Divide the sweetcorn amongst the jars, then add the rice, chicken, avocado, little gem lettuce leaves and lastly the cheese. Screw on the lid and enjoy 4 days’ worth of healthy lunches!
