I realize that the ingredient list on this recipe is a bit longer than I would normally post but the ingredients are all simple to find and the nice thing about these bowls is that you can totally customize them to your liking if you want, you can skip the rice and serve it over lettuce instead. 
The nice thing about these bowls is you can easily feed a crowd by prepping everything in advance tossing some chicken and corn on the grill and letting people assemble the bowls to their liking.

To dress up the rice a bit I just cook normal white rice but then toss in some lime juice, cilantro and salt to make the flavors a bit more unique the Cilantro Lime Rice part of this recipe is also terrific served on its own with other dishes.

And the crispy corn strips are simply cut up tortillas tossed with spices and baked quickly in the oven.
You could always toss in some plain, crumbled tortillas chips instead but I fully recommend making these.

On the grill I like to add the chicken, corn and a few jalapenos for extra spiciness make it your own!  These are all great additions to the Grilled Chicken Burrito Bowls.
