I’m officially halfway through my second round of Whole30. This round, it’s all about finding new recipes that I love (not going to lie, my first round I ate WAY too many potatoes…) I really wanted a burger, but didn’t want red meat, and came across ground chicken in the meat section of my local Kroger. After some experimenting in the kitchen, these Chicken Burger Bowls were born.
Wow, why didn’t anyone tell me how good this is? Ground chicken is still juicy, can be used in place of ground beef or turkey in any recipe, and is actually cheaper than the ground turkey options! I ended up creating a bowl to satisfy my burger cravings, and that turned into my regular lunch that I looked forward to all week! This was so good, guys.
I roasted the green beans for a deeper flavor. In a skillet, just sauté the mushrooms and tomatoes to get a bit of color on them. My favorite part is probably the fried egg on top. Does anyone else like fried eggs on their burgers? I guess that could make this meal a breakfast bowl as well.
For these Chicken Burger Bowls, you can use any sort of meat and substitute any of the veggies that you want, really. Happy Whole15 – here’s to 15 days more! Have you ever completed a Whole30?
Chicken Burger Bowls (Whole30!)

- Massage your veggies to distribute the seasonings and then line up on the cookie sheet. Roast for about 15 minutes or until soft.
- While your green beans are roasting, add about 1 tbsp. of olive oil to a skillet. Season with your favorite burger blend & cook ground chicken through on medium heat. Set aside.
