California Chicken, Veggie, Avocado and Rice Bowls. Also known as the non-boring chicken and rice dinner bowl that’s so darn GOOD. Spice rubbed grilled chicken served up bowl style with grilled peppers, zucchini, mashed avocado, tomatoes, and crumbled cheese. This easy, healthy, chicken and rice bowl is made almost entirely on the grill, all in under 30 minutes, using fresh from the market ingredients. It’s a great weeknight meal that can easily double as a delicious packed lunch the following day.

You guys! Yes, I have another chicken and rice bowl for you, and it’s SO GOOD. This bowl has been a staple in my kitchen for years and years. It’s kind of my form of summer comfort food. This recipe brings back all the childhood memories for me. While this is absolutely nothing like the chicken and rice my dad served my brothers and me as kids, it still has the core ingredients, grilled chicken and steamed rice.

I am not even joking when I say this, but we ate grilled chicken and rice at least twice a week during the summer months back in Cleveland. It was my dad’s go-to dinner. Probably because it was the easiest thing he could cook up after work and also because we all loved it. With a house of 6 boys and 2 girls (my mom and I…Asher hadn’t entered the world yet), it was a miracle if everyone actually agreed on a dinner, let alone loved it.

Point of the story? I grew up on dinners of chicken and rice. Looking back, Dad’s were a tad on the bland side, but regardless, I loved them. To this day chicken and rice is still a comfort food for me.

California Chicken and Veggies on platter

Enter in these California chicken, veggie, avocado and rice bowls. They’re kind of inspired by my dad’s grilled chicken. Kind of inspired by the fresh flavors and produce of California style cooking. And kind of DELICIOUS.

First up is the chicken. This is definitely not my dad’s style of grilled chicken, which was a very basic, olive oil, salt, and pepper situation. Nah, this chicken is well seasoned and so much more flavorful. Think lemon pepper with plenty of garlic, a little heat, a touch of paprika, and so much fresh parsley and basil (mostly because our garden is overflowing with herbs right now). It’s simple and subtle, but yet also flavorful.

Best part? You can most likely find all of the ingredients in your pantry. Well, with the possible exception of fresh herbs, which you may even be growing in your garden? YES.

I love a pantry staple recipe. Keeps weeknights stress-free.

OK. Moving onto the rest of the bowl…the rice, the veggies, and the avocado.

For the rice, I just did a super simple steamed rice. Steamed rice is my fall back and what I have loved forever. That said, you can certainly use brown rice, quinoa, or even cauliflower rice if you’re looking to bulk up your vegetable content. Any of these will honestly be great.

Next, the vegetables. I used a mix of bell peppers and zucchini. Now, before you dismiss the vegetables, let me explain something. Grilling vegetables gives them a whole new identity. They char up, turn sweet, and take on a nice smoky flavor. They’re so good, I could eat them every single day. Especially bell peppers, they’ve been my favorite since I was kid…again I was an odd little girl that loved her veggies. Nothing has changed.

The chicken and the vegetables are grilled at the same time. While that’s happening, your rice should be cooking away on the stove. By the time the rice is cooked, the chicken and vegetables should be coming off the grill. At this point, it’s time to assemble.

Well almost…

You need some mashed avocado first. More specifically, mashed avocado with lemon, parsley, and a good amount of flaky salt.

Ok, now we can assemble.

It goes like this, rice, chicken veggies, and a large dollop of mashed avocado. Add fresh cherry tomatoes and a little bit of cheese. I personally love blue cheese, but you can use crumbled goat or feta cheese if you prefer. And finally, toasted walnuts, because walnuts feel very “California” to me.

About 30 minutes after starting you’ll have the prettiest, tastiest, healthy bowl of chicken, veggies, avocado, and rice. I know it’s kind of simple, but trust me, the flavors are out of this world good. I couldn’t love this bowl more. It’s the chicken and rice dish I loved growing up, but much more “done up”.

Lastly, I feel like I should mention that this is without a doubt one of my mom’s all-time favorite recipes. I’ve never met someone who loves a simple chicken and rice dinner more than her. So every chance I get, I make this for her. She likes her bowls with double the rice, extra basil, more peppers than zucchini, and possibly a side of buttery grilled corn too. Oh, and bread, can’t forget the bread!

Hey…she knows what she loves.

Ingredients

Chicken

The Rice + Veggies + Avocado

  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into fourths
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 avocados, mashed very well
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 cups cooked basmati rice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta, goat, or blue cheese

Instructions

  • 1. In a gallon-size zip-top bag or bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, onion powder, cayenne, smoked paprika, rosemary, parsley, and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss well to coat. Marinate for 10 minutes or up to overnight in the fridge.
    2. In a gallon-size zip-top bag or bowl, combine the red peppers, zucchini, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
    3. Set your grill, grill pan, or skillet to medium-high heat.
    4. Grill the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side, until chicken is cooked through and has light char marks. While the chicken is grilling grill the peppers and zucchini for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until charred. Remove everything from the grill and let cool 5 minutes. Once cool slice the red peppers into strips.
    5. In a medium bowl, combine the avocado, lemon juice, parsley, and garlic, and season with salt and pepper.
    6. To assemble, divide the rice among 4 bowls or plates. Top each bowl of rice with equal amounts of chicken, grilled peppers and zucchini. Add a large dollop of avocado and then add the fresh tomatoes and walnuts. Sprinkle with cheese (if desired). EAT!

    Loved it! My husband and teen/pre-teen daughters loved it too! I’m working my way through your recipes as I just discovered you recently. Everything is delicious!

    1. Hey Erin,
      Happy Sunday! I love to hear this recipe was enjoyed and I truly appreciate you giving it a try! xxTieghan

  2. Thank you for the great recipe it is simple and healthy. Great for families with growing children. I finally got my children to eat fajitas including peppers which is a really great accomplishment.

    1. Hey Michelle,
      Happy Sunday! It’s so great to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, I appreciate you taking the time to make it! xTieghan

    This recipe was amazing! The chicken was absolutely delicious. The only thing I would say is I recommend adding a sauce to the recipe. Even with the creamy avocado I found a sauce would have been nice. However, I will definitely make this again.

    1. Hey Ellen,
      Wonderful! Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

    We love this recipe. Thinking of making for large family reunion- could I marinate and freeze the chicken ahead of time?

    1. Hey Kirsten,
      Awesome! I am so glad to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for giving it a try! Yes you could definitely do that:) xTieghan

    I made this with island teriyaki marinated tempeh instead of chicken. It was amazing! Thanks for sharing 😊

    1. Hey Sarah,
      Wonderful!! Thanks a bunch for making this recipe, I am so glad that it was enjoyed! ☀️xTieghan

    My 8 year old son was my sous chef – he did most of the work while I supervised. 🙂 We used a grill pan for the veggies and chicken. Only thing we did differently was toast the walnuts on the stove. Was fun to do together and he was so proud of himself. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Hey Ashley,
      Thanks a lot for giving the recipe a go, I am so delighted that it was enjoyed! Have a great week:) xTieghan

    I always like to say if I did anything different, and for this recipe I did cook my veggies in my cast iron skillet to get a good char on them instead of the grill. Everything else I did as the recipe is written. The chicken was amazing – great flavor! It had a little heat with the cayenne, but my husband and I only noticed it when we ate a piece by itself not mixed in with all the other yummy goodness. Oh, and I did do half a yellow squash and half a zucchini as well as one red and one green bell pepper….but that wouldn’t have changed anything (just added more color). I thought about making some lemon garlic tahini dressing to drizzle over this next time. I made a copycat recipe recently from Panera’s warm Mediterranean grain bowl that had that recipe and it would be a perfect light addition.

  8. 5 stars
    DELICIOUS!!! So yummy and full of flavor and healthy to boot! This is one of those meals you feel better after eating it. Yum Yum YUM.

  9. I make at least one HBH recipe a week. I should comment more often because of how much I utilize your recipes. Love them. Always searching for a way to use what is in my fridge at the end of the week after preparing specifically for a HBH recipe at the start of the week. Loving the recipes more and more!

    Anyway, this is the perfect ‘host a friend on a weeknight’ type of meal. Impressive, yet simple and delicious. Thanks!!!

    1. Aw that is so amazing to hear! I am really glad you have been enjoying my recipes, Holly! Thank you! xTieghan

    This was incredible and my husband said it was in his top 5 favorite meals. My kids gobbled up every last bite as well!

    I wanted something quick and easy to make on a hot summer night. My entire family loved the flavor of the chicken.

  12. I just made this for lunch. My husband has been working from home during this pandemic and has been in the study for the last 6 hours. He has been so busy with meetings that he couldnt leave his desk and asked me to bring a plate to him. 5 minutes after i made him a plate he came out of our study, muted his meeting and told me how amazing this recipe was!

    I love your blog. It has everything soooo many meal ideas for the whole family to enjoy.

    1. Wow that is so amazing!! I am so glad this turned out so well for you, Nadia! Thank you so much! xTieghan

    Made this tonight for my husband and I and it was delicious! Will definitely be added into our dinner rotation. We did use chicken breast that I pounded out even instead of tenders and made a 50/50 cauliflower/rice mix for the base. Wonderful! Love this dish!

  14. 5 stars
    I made this with seitan (no evil foods) and a quinoa-brown rice mix and it was delicious! As I was making it, I had trouble figuring out how all of the flavors would go together – but of course they did and they were so delicious! My husband loved it, even though he hates meat alternatives and he just had it without.

    Another win for #halfbakedharvest! Thank you! My husband commented repeatedly how fresh this tasted. Bring on Spring!

  16. 5 stars
    Seriously tasty, and very easy to make, I forgot to take a photo but will do next time I make it! This is the first Half Baked Harvest recipe I’ve tried and it certainly won’t be the last! Your cool book is going on my Christmas list! Thank you Tieghan, loving your work! Love from Sal in the UK

    1. Thank you so much Sally! That is so great to hear! Also, I hope to see a photo next time, but no worries if not haha! xTieghan

    Delicious! And so easy to make. A wonderful marinade that gave the chicken a lot of flavor. I used the same marinade for tofu and the tofu was amazing. I also served it with some garlic dipping sauce which went very well with the bowls.

    Absolutely love your recipes!! Have made a lot of them already but we are always finding new ones that we love! Thank you so much for sharing them ❤️

    I only took the chicken part, and actually sliced the chicken thigh and made a stir fry, In addition, I added a bit lemon juice to the chicken when marinating, it turned out great with the freshness from the lemon.

    1. Hi Ter! Sorry if this is not accurate for you. This is usually how long it would take me so I try to estimate off of that. I hope you still try this! xTieghan

  20. Hey Tieghan!
    If I don’t have a grill or grillpan, how do you recommend I make this? Should I cook it on the stove first, and then broil the chicken and veggies to get a char? or just cook at a higher heat on the stovetop.
    Thanks, super excited to make this!

    1. Hi Allison! I recommend roasting the chicken and veggies on a sheet pan in a 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies charring. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

    Made this tonight and it was great! The second HBH recipe I’ve tried and definitely not the last! I left out the basil and onion powder because for some reason I can’t buy onion powder where I live? Weird.
    Also I was meant to crumble cheddar cheese on at the end but I totally forgot. Still delicious!

    I’ll definitely make this again and I’m looking forward to trying even more recipes! Thanks!

  22. Hey! Which of your various assortment of sauces that you’ve made in the past, would you suggest for this dish? I only ask because I live with a sauce fiend who will inevitably ask me at din din tonight if there is a sauce. Lol. #marriedlife

    I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! I’m so happy I discovered your blog a few months ago!

    Another hit from HBH! I have two fussy guys to feed in my household and they both loved the flavor of this chicken.
    This dish came together easy and fast. I would definitely recommend.

  25. Love this recipe!! My husband s not a fan of avacados. Would you please suggest some kind of a sauce (yogurt of sour cream based that would play off the great spices on the chicken!!
    Thanks, Nancy

    It was so delicious! My whole family loved it. Mine didn’t look as pretty as yours but it tastes great!

  27. 5 stars
    Made this tonight with shrimp instead of chicken. Also left out the dairy and cayenne, per my usual. The whole family loved it.

  28. I want to make this this weekend when son and family come over. My granddaughter however is vegetarian. I’d love a substitute protein I could make for her while the rest of us enjoy the delicious looking chicken.

    1. Hi Linda! Does she enjoy tofu or the vegan chicken brands? I am sure those would work great. If not, let me know! xTieghan

  29. Fried chicken is one of the favorite recipe of my husband! This version looks absolutely amazing!I have to try for him 🙂
    Thanks for all your amazing recipes <3

    I just discovered your blog and made this for dinner tonight. Absolutely delicious and can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    Here’s what I did: cut up two red peppers, two zucchinis, and 2 chicken breasts. Toss them in a bowl with 2x everything listed under “chicken”. Dump it all on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 425 for 25mins. Served with diced avocado and feta cheese over rice. BOOM AMAZING! Way easier and less clean up. I also put some sauce on there: 1:1 Greek yogurt:mayonnaise (.5c each) with 6 garlic gloves some salt and as much or as little siracha as you can handle. SERIOUSLY. I would eat this all day every day! Thanks for the inspiration!

  32. 3 stars
    I wouldn’t recommend the basmati. The rice was overcooked. Basmati only needs 10-15 minutes maximum. I would use brown long grain rice next time too.

    Other than this and the amount of oil, would do again.

    1. HI Charlotte, sorry for the trouble. I have never had Basmati rice cook that fast. It always takes me 25-30 minutes. Thanks for trying this recipe!

  33. I have to try this recipe soon too! Haha chicken and steamed white rice are a staple at my house. I would cook fish every day if I can have it my way too. 😉 These days, I only cook fish when it’s on sale, so that my husband won’t get too grumpy since he eats whatever I cook even though he isn’t the biggest fan of fish.

  34. Made this for dinner except I used riced cauliflower instead of actual rice. It was pretty good. I left out the walnuts. My kids had sushi rice in their bowls, but they didn’t think blue cheese and rice were a good combo. Definitely several ingredients I had not previously tried together.

  35. Hi Teighan, Just discovered this recipe through the HuffPost Taste section and made it for supper tonight. Delicious! We loved the combination of flavours. I replaced the blue cheese with feta cuz blue cheese scares me 🙂 I’m looking forward to trying more of your tasty-looking recipes. Thanks!

    1. Hi Meredith!! SO happy you tried and liked this!! Thank you so much!! Can’t wait to hear more from you(:

  36. I have tried this recipe twice now and my husband and I both love it. We love it enough for me to post this comment! So good!

  37. I made this rice bowl yesterday exactly as described here and it was AWESOME! This was a yummy combination of flavors..I used jasmine rice and came out well using the method described in the instructions – I’ve tried other rice bowl recipes and didn’t like them– thanks for posting this, I’m a believer again!

  38. Thanks for sharing this! I am pretty sure my clan would go bananas for this. Gonna bust out the grill ASAP.

  39. Teighan, I just wanted you to know that I’ve been making this dish now regularly for about a year, and it’s one of my healthy go-tos! Just discovering the rest of your blog, and your photos are gorgeous. Just sending some admiration from one blogger to another!

  40. Too much story. Scrolling to the end to get to the recipe. Whatever happened to a recipe and instructions and maybe a picture?

  41. The photo alone drew me in and I knew I have to make this! And I did! Not to sound dirty, but I love how it all comes together in the month. Great instructions, simple ingredients and I need to make more! AMAZING RECIPE Gurlfriend!

  42. i am so excited to make this! it looks so delicious! thanks for the recipe! did you feel like it was dry and needed a dressing of any sort? I was curious what would pair well with it?

  43. I just found your blog and I love it. You’ve probably already figured out how to cook good brown rice, but if not try looking up Alton Brown’s baked brown rice recipe. It turns out perfect every. single. time. No joke. I do use a little less salt as I find his recipe makes it a little too salty. Unfortunately, we’ve given up eating brown rice as I found out that most brown rice has high traces of inorganic arsenic.

  44. I don’t ever leave reviews but I had to share. I have made this twice and its to die for. I use my own guac recipe and add cilantro and lime to the rice. This is my families new favorite dinner! The chicken makes a killer salad or pita the next day, too! Thank you for this recipe! YUM

  45. When I saw this recipe I could tell just looking at it I was going to love it. I just made it and it is awesome! I did cheat and used rotisserie chicken, I also cooked my zucchini on the cooktop. I used feta instead of blue cheese. I loved that every bite had something different. I will make this one a lot!!!!

  46. This looks awesome! I love all the flavors. A great way to dress up chicken and rice (which I could eat every night too!)

  47. I made this tonight! So fabulous! I adore the blue cheese with the avocado, and the freshness and brightness of the tomatoes pair so well with the savory chicken, sweet peppers, and earthy zucchini!

  48. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I made it tonight for dinner and it was amazing 🙂 I especially love the chicken and roasted peppers, tastes great but healthy, love it!!

  49. This dish is so unbelievably delicious!!! My husband and I probably eat this once a week. I LOVE the combo of the grilled veggies, blue cheese and toasted walnuts. We use brown rice instead of jasmine, though. I’m so glad I found this recipe!!!!

  50. This looks wonderful! Can’t wait to try it when it starts to get warm again. Also, your photos are beautiful, great work!

  51. Try Alton Brown’s Baked Brown Rice reipe. It is absolutely foolproof! Just make sure to use short or medium grain brown rice.

  52. Excellent post. Inspiring, super yum food. LOVE the writing. Great blog. I visit lots and always want to eat here. Thank you for your wonderful work.

    1. Hi Donna! You have to sign up on the right hand side of my sight where is says subscribe by email. Let me know if you have any problems or questions and thank you so much for signing up!

  53. I made this last night and what a treat! Avocado is always readily available in the kitchen, but I’ve never thought to add walnuts and blue cheese. Extremely yummy! I do love spicy so I added some chili peppers to the guacamole. It paired very well with the blue cheese crumble and crunchy toasted walnuts. Thank you, thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  54. Hi Tieghan,
    Just wanted to let you know I am in the middle of making this for dinner. It’s all I’ve thought about all week since I discovered your blog! I can’t wait to let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing your gifts!
    PS
    re: the Chilaquiles, the second reader is correct. It is in deed prounounced “Chee-lah-kee-les!

    1. Oh thank you so much! I cannot wait to hear what you think!

      You are so sweet and your kind words mean so much. You have no idea!

      1. Tieghan,
        You are a genius!! It tasted exactly like I knew it would when I first laid eyes on the gorgeous photo! So much like Summer, a bit like Fall, fresh, healthy, perfectly spiced..the marriage of every spice along with all of the different textures was incredible! My husband and I enjoyed every bite and I want to invite everyone I know over for dinner so I can impress with this fresh dish! Cannot wait to make the next recipe I have saved. Thank you again and keep it up!
        1 more thing, I can’t believe you respond to every comment left by your readers. It’s most appreciated and so wonderful of you but it has to be time consuming. Some day when you’re rich and famous you will have to get a personal assistant or just do a group “thank you.”
        Until the next dish….

        1. Hah! Denise you comment made me smile! First of all, I am so happy you guys loved this!! It is one of the cozy meals that is still light and fresh. So good!! Second, you are too funny! I love reading everyones comments and then being able to interact with them, but it does take time. So worth though! Thanks Again!

  55. I made this tonight and it was very quick and easy and tasted delicious!! Thank you – this will now be a regular feature on our weekly menu : )

  56. You have so much goodness in this bowl!! I can feel the pounds coming off by just looking at your photos!! Hehe!

  57. I saw this and just had to make it! Instead of rice, I used arugula because I had some leftover and wanted to use it before it went bad. It was phenomonal! I had leftovers the next day on rice and it was also delicious!

  58. WOWOW this is so my kind of dinner!! Im already rackin my brain to see if I have all the things I need to make this tonight..sooo yum!

    1. Let me know if you make it!! And if you do I really hope you love it!

      Thanks so much, Alaina! You are the best!

  59. Yum – I made this the other night and it was super delicious! Thanks ever so much for the recipe – it’s our new favourite,

  60. What a fabulous meal, your family is so fortunate to have you in the kitchen! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  61. Perfect dinner indeed. I so know I’m going to try this out as soon as I can get to grilling. Looks absolutely delicious.

  62. Yum…now that’s my kind of meal! I would probably shove a lobster in my little brother’s face as well, just for the fun of it 🙂

  63. This looks amazing! Have you tried baking your brown rice? I first saw the idea in a cooks illustrated magazine. It comes out perfect every time, I make huge batches and freeze.

  64. This is just a bowl of complete…that’s it. Complete with all the flavors I love. A bowl that I know would fill my belly after a hard days work in the fields, now I’m rambling but you know what I mean 🙂

  65. Sounds like you have a ton of fun with your family in the kitchen! Love these rice bowls, need to eat this soon!!

  66. You capture such amazing color in your photos. I feel like I’m right there at the table, which isn’t fair because I’m so hungry right now!!

  67. I love the look of these bowls!!! This is a great idea for chicken and veggies – love the added avocado – of course!!! Mmm!

  68. I love meals like this – totally customizable and I love being able to throw whatever leftovers I have on top! This is also a staple meal in our house!

  69. Looks good! As for brown rice, my parents always used to soak the rice for at least half an hour before cooking, to help soften it – it seemed to work well for them.

  70. wow – that bowl looks soo good – and I dont even eat chicken! But I want some (minus the chicken 🙂 )
    I cook my brown rice in the microwave for 25 mins. It cooks perfectly. Brown rice is meant to be chewy so I dont expect white rice texture -but 25 mins definitely makes it softer.

  71. Ben is such a creature of habit, he hates when I break with our dinner routine. He would love all the veggies in this – and I would love that chicken and rice. Girl you have my dinner planned out!

    1. I am such a creature of habit. The only thing stopping me from making the same stuff everyday is this blog. LOL!!

      Thanks Megan!

  72. If this is your typical dinner, I am totally moving in. Also, I use instant brown rice: CONFESSION!!!

  73. My family is like that too! I grew up eating buttered noodles and chicken and rice. They have since grown much more adventurous and add a lot more veggies in, but those are still staples that I see when I go home. The recipe looks so easy and delicious. What a good summer meal!

  74. You must get a rice cooker! It cooks white rice AND brown rice perfectly and can even make oatmeal in the morning! They even have timers so it can be ready whenever you are! I use a Zojirushi. Worth the investment!

    1. I have a zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cooker as well. It makes great brown rice but it can take almost two hours. And it makes the BEST white rice. Really it will change your life.

  75. Why have I never had this for dinner before?? It looks fantastic! We don’t normally do rice and chicken bowls here, but this recipe is a must try: it looks delicious and super fresh with all those veggies. I love it! c:

  76. Gorgeous, Tieghan! I just made rice bowls a few nights ago and my family absolutely loved them. They are the perfect quick and healthy meal.

  77. I have recently started following you! I have shared your site with all of my foodie coworkers – we are all in love. Thanks and keep the creativity flowing — its delicious 🙂

    1. Awe, thank you so much! You are so kind to share my site with your co-workers! Hope everyone is loving it!

  78. This will go perfectly with my ‘healthier’ planned week of eating. I can just substitute brown rice. Looks delicious Tieghan!

  79. Love how you added grilled veggies to this “bowl” – they make the chicken and rice look so YUM!
