Easy One Pan Chicken Burrito Bowl Recipe

I have been catching up on WGN's Salem and it's soooo addicting.  Have you watched it at all? It's such a twisted version of the time period of when the Salem witch trials were going.  Even more twisted than real history.  Oh man, but it's sooooo addicting. Between Salem and American Horror Story, I am a freaking couch potato.  Of course, that means I've been making easy foods. 

This chicken burrito bowl is so easy and it's super delicious! My daughter thinks it is bomb. com and loves it!
