No need for takeout with this Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl! Made just like your favorite restaurant’s burrito bowl, this recipe is filling, healthy and the perfect way to use your leftover shredded chicken!
Sometimes I feel like cooking chicken is such a process that I prefer to do a lot of it at once. But then I remember that I’m only cooking for 2 (even though 1 of the 2 eats for 5…) and I end up with too many leftovers to handle.
That’s when having good recipes that you can top with leftover chicken come to the rescue. It’s an easy way to add protein and prevent letting perfectly good food go bad.
Apparently, I’m not the only one with this issue so my blogging besties and I teamed up to bring you 6 Healthy Recipes Using Leftover Chicken!
That’s right, chicken 6 ways. Let’s jump in!

You guys are my everything and are my #1 motivation for showing up everyday. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Now onto today’s post…
I’ve always considered myself to be a city girl. I’ve only ever lived in cities so I suspect that’s probably why and despite spending 11 summers in the hills of New Hampshire, I never believed myself to be “outdoorsy”. And then something changed…
Either I woke up and had freaky friday’ed with my wilderness woman alter ego or I started dating a boy who lives for the mountains. I’ll let you guess the more accurate scenario.
Needless-to-say, 5 years with a man who takes solo-winter camping trips and spends his spare time making leather sheaths for his knife collection (I wish I were kidding – and this is less scary than it seems) eventually rubbed off on me and now I will take any opportunity to get outside.
So when C found out he had a conference in Portland, Maine, I jumped at the opportunity to drive to Acadia National Park and spend a few days road-tripping, camping, climbing mountains and experiencing everything Maine had to offer. And all of this planning happened in under 48 hours. Talk about spontaneous road trip!
To be honest, I was completely ignorant what was on the Maine short-list. I knew about Acadia and Portland, but besides a bunch of summer trips to Ogunquit, I really didn’t know what to expect. What unfolded was more than I could have ever asked for.
So C and I packed up our camping gear and began the long drive through Ontario and Quebec all the way into Northern Maine. From there we made our way to Acadia, drove down along Coastal Route 1 all the way to Portland. I’m so excited to share this experience with you. Come along for the ride!
