Of all the ways to use up a rotisserie chicken, this Chipotle Chicken Buddha Bowl is one of my favourites! Paleo, gluten-free and full of flavour, this recipe is perfect for batch meal prep and can be made in 20 minutes or less.



For the cauliflower rice:

  • 1 cup cauliflower rice
  • 2 tbsp torn fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • pinch of cumin

For the rest:

  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 120g shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup mixed diced bell peppers
  • ½ cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp finely diced red onion
  • ¼ sliced avocado

For the chipotle sauce (you will have lots leftover):

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced (roast it first for the best flavour!)
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp each extra virgin olive oil and tahini
  • ½ tsp chipotle pepper flakes
  • pinch of sea salt


  • Use a blender or food processor to whirl together all ingredients for the chipotle sauce. Once smooth, transfer to a small jar.
  • Toss together the ingredients for the seasoned cauliflower rice. Pour them into a serving bowl, followed by the romaine lettuce.
  • Prepare the remaining ingredients as indicated. Stir together the diced bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and red onion.
  • Arrange the bell pepper mixture and avocado slices on top of the lettuce and cauliflower rice.
  • Add a few tablespoons of chipotle sauce to the chicken and stir to coat. Pour the chicken into your serving bowl.
  • Garnish with cilantro sprigs. Serve with additional chipotle sauce and lime wedges.
