The snow is FINALLY melting. Seriously though, am I the only one who feels like this winter drug on and on?

We still have a little snow in my back yard, but the patio is clear and the grill has been running.

I love a good bbq.

This past Monday, I bought a bunch of Canadian chicken and grilled them all. This led me to have a bunch of cooked chicken on hand for the week.

With that chicken, I made stir-fries, salads, and these honey dijon bbq chicken bowls.

What to look for when buying chicken breasts

Made by a chicken farmer

The first thing I look for when I buy chicken breasts is for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo.

This ensures that the chicken I buy has been raised by a Canadian farmer, and gives me peace of mind that the chicken I buy has been audited by a third party to ensure that the health and safety standards are high. It also lets me know that I’m supporting farms that give back to our communities, and by doing that supports the Canadian economy.

The next thing I look for is the best before date. I always shuffle the chicken around until I find the freshest option available (especially since it’s usually a day or two before I cook it up with my grocery shop schedule).

Mustard BBQ Sauce Chicken Bowls

I’ll be up front. I have never had a mustard based bbq sauce before. Carolina mustard bbq sauces are not common in my part of Canada but I like the sounds of them.

I used dijon mustard because I love the flavor and thought it would bring a kick to the sauce.

I used old dijon mustard (it’s grainy), but a smooth dijon would work just as well.

How to Make BBQ Chicken Bowls

It’s so easy to make healthy grilled chicken bowls.

Batch cook some grilled chicken and add whatever vegetables you have one hand.

I used frozen cauliflower rice, but regular rice works (and so does quinoa).

Randa’s Tip: The serving size for this chicken bowl recipe is one, but the best part is it’s so easy to double, triple, or quadruple for how many people you need.
