Ingredients

For the Buddha bowl

  • 1 large cooked chicken breast or other leftover cooked chicken eg a whole leg
  • red pepper
  • 1 cup cooked rice - I used a wild rice blend but use as you have/prefer
  • 1 large handful greens - I used arugula but again as you prefer
  • ¼ cup cooked edamame

For dressing

  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • ½ tablespoon coconut cream
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  • Slice or shred the cooked chicken. Cut the pepper into thin slices.
  • Arrange the bowls by placing each of the chicken, pepper, rice, greens and edamame in a little pile next to each other, using half of each for each bowl.
  • Blend together all of the dressing ingredients and add to the bowls, mixing in as you eat.

Notes

I have used coconut cream in the dressing partly as it saves wasting a can (leftover coconut cream will keep well), but if you have a little leftover coconut milk instead, you can also use that - just use around 1 tablespoon coconut milk and then only ½ tablespoon water.
