These coconut-mango chicken meal prep bowls with basmati rice, corn salsa, and an easy mango marinade are a delicious way to prep your lunches for the week! Top with extra cilantro.


  • ⅔ cup basmati rice
  • 1 cup water

Mango Sauce:

  • 1 mango, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved lengthwise

Corn Salsa:

  • 1 (14 ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 ½ cups corn
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 avocado, sliced


  • Step 1Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  • Step 2Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Step 3Mix mango, olive oil, lime juice, honey, sriracha sauce, garlic, and salt together in a blender until smooth. Place chicken in a shallow bowl and pour 1/2 the sauce on top; marinate chicken for 10 minutes.
  • Step 4Mix black beans, corn, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt together in a bowl for the corn salsa.
  • Step 5Grill chicken until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from heat.
  • Step 6Divide rice among 4 glass meal prep bowls. Add 2 pieces of chicken to each bowl; top with the reserved mango sauce, corn salsa, and coconut. Top with avocado slices, cover, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Cook’s Notes:

Substitute jasmine rice for the basmati, if desired.

Instead of grilling, you can bake this at 425 degrees F (200 degrees C).
