Chicken and Brown Rice Bowl with Lime Dressing

After dinner tonight, my grand daughter was playing with her "poppa", and pouring him imaginary tea out of a cute little pink teapot that makes the sweetest little noises.  Just watching them together, made my heart smile. God uses children in so many ways to teach us as adults how to forget about the cares of the world and just sit back and trust in Him. So while my heart was full from watching her play, my belly was just as full from the wonderful dinner we had just finished eating. My daughter helped me prepare this and we all loved it. Super healthy, quite easy to prepare and it definitely fills your belly!
This recipe makes 3 good size chicken bowls

1cup uncooked Brown Rice, cooked according to pkg directions
3 med to large or 4 small cooked and shredded chicken breasts (seasoned with salt and pepper)
Green onions, chopped
Cilantro chopped

Carrots, shredded
Fresh limes

*Make the dressing according to directions below and set aside.
**Place cooked rice in a bowl. Top with shredded chicken.  Place whatever amount of green onions, cilantro, peanuts and carrots, as you would like, on the top of the rice. Squeeze a lot of fresh lime juice over this mixture. Top with the dressing.

Juice from 5 limes
9 tsps olive oil
