Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Season chicken lightly on both sides with sea salt, black pepper, paprika, cumin or any other spices you prefer.
  2. Place on a baking sheet and bake approximately 20 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  3. Allow to cool, and then shred the chicken with a fork.
  4. In a medium skillet, heat the corn oil and unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and jalapeno and saute until onion becomes translucent, about 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the masa flour and whisk together. Allow to cook 2 minutes.
  6. Gradually add the chicken broth; constantly whisk to ensure no clumps of flour.
  7. Adjust heat to medium-low. Add tomato sauce, granulated garlic, lime juice, chili powder, paprika, oregano and pinch of sea salt. Stir together, cover, and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes.
  8. While the sauce is simmering, add lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro to the cooked brown rice and blend together.
  9. Add the blacked beans, corn, bell pepper, tomato, cumin, garlic and jalapeno to a medium sized bowl and mix.
  10. Divide the rice into 4 portions. Divide the black bean and corn mixture into 4 portions.
  11. Add a layer of ¼ of the rice to a bowl, top with ¼ of the bean and corn mixture. Add a shredded chicken breast and drizzle approximately ¼ cup of red burrito sauce over the entire dish.
  12. If desired, add 1 tablespoon of shredded, reduced fat cheddar cheese and garnish with fresh cilantro.
