Once again… another banger of a meal prep recipe
You don't wanna know how long I've only been eating your chicken burrito bowls… so thank you for uploading this video
Hey J, is it possible to use white wine vinegar instead of red? I don’t have any red in my region. Thank you
I absolutely lost it at 1:46. You're a funny dude, in addition to these amazing recipes. Thanks again Josh!
Another good one. About get hot here too so very timely addition…
⚠WARNING⚠: Uncooked rinsed veggies will spoil within 2 or 3 days max in the fridge. If you wait all the five days you will notice that the last meal will smell terrible and the raw components especially will be spoiled.
Shakey shake? Lol. I learn so many kewl terms on this channel, plus some awesome recipes. I’m wondering why I’m not getting notices on the videos? Not trying to be a cry-ass. Keep ‘em coming!
Oh, next time I’m in Austin I’ll bring you stuff to cook with. Just saying.
Life pro tip, put the dijon on before the seasonings on the chicken breasts. That's a classic technique from BBQ to use a "binder" to make seasonings stick.
For me, the most impressive part was how sharp that knife was when you were cutting the chicken.

Love the video! I made this before I watched it – heads up you omitted the mustard from the dressing ingredients in the recipe on your site.
TY so much for this one!
Yo I need that giant bowl!
Is it on your kitchen supplies list?
I haven't even put the chicken in yet, and the mixture is so good! This is going to be a week of meals I can't wait to crack into, at work! <3 Thank you for this!
Can you keep the cold recipes coming I work a construction job so no microwave
Haha; the sun part got me 😂😂😂
I'm about 25 lbs down in 3 months thanks to your recipes, so much so I actually bought a subscription to your site. Thanks for the great, low calorie recipes!
Thanks for the recipe Josh! Nice to have some variety aside from the usual rice bowls. By the way, the written recipe doesn't have the Dijon mustard added to the dressing.
What air fryer do you use?
The voice overs have been changing over time
salad dressing pro tip: Mix some xanthan gum into 1-2 tablespoons of oil then substitute the rest of the oil with water. The gum helps both thicken it and act as an additional emulsifier. It mixes best into oil first not water. Since you still have oil in it you still get that oily mouth-feel and the carrier for fat-soluble flavor compounds, but drastically lower in calories. Use a super good-quality EVO if you want to make sure the olive oil flavor is still there
Ty John. I'm a truck driver & I can use this!!👍
You're probably saving more than $14 a month. My Texas summer electric bill is about $300 a month.
I'm not typically a huge fan of cold pasta dishes. But this one looks so good i might just give it a try! Thanks for all the awesome recipes you share.
Josh eating veg? …who are you?
This recipe rocks! One tip I would respectfully give is to always add a little oil to the chicken before baking. It not only promotes browning but also distributes the heat evenly improving the end product.
Definitely gonna try this one out, and im sadly a poor knifer with dull knives 🤣😅
Could we have a link for the metal sauce pots you use please?
As a sub for the dressing, just use italian dressing. I've been making a variant of this salad for years and this goes really well. Don't buy the lite dressing, it's just watered down and won't actually do what you want with it.
Hello from New Orleans, where cold summer meals are also welcome! I'm curious–I find drained cans of beans to be ~240-280g. Did you use two cans of kidney beans, or are you referring to the un-drained weights?
Do you have a KFC famous bowl style recipe?
Hey Josh I'm gluten intolerant and your recipes have helped me navigate making cheap food that taste great that are gluten free
Hell yeah, looks like a great summer meal. I'm adding this to the rotation. BTW, I was sold as soon as I saw the black olives 😀
And that's why Leon Edwards has the most aesthetic physique in the world.
Looks great! Just started mealprepping, surprisingly calm and not that tidious, when you focus on good foods with nice taste. This will be up next, ty!
gotta try this. looks awesome and i bet it tastes awesome as well.
Love your videos but they always remind me how inconvenient my onion allergy is
I can't stand reheated chicken (Tastes foul to me) so this could be a game changer
Yes! More cold meals please!
Just a heads up that you left out the Dijon mustard in dressing part of your recipe on your site
