Step 1 Stir together the lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, honey, salt, and pepper to make the chili lime marinade. If you want extra dressing for the bowls, double the marinade.

Step 2 Add the chicken breast and marinate for at least 30 minutes, ideally 1-2 hours. While the chicken marinates, make the quinoa. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil (to cook one cup of quinoa.) Once boiling, stir in the quinoa. Turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook on low for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Step 3 When ready to grill, remove the chicken from the marinade. Let excess drip off. Grill for about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Step 4 For bowls: Layer in the quinoa, greens, black beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, and cilantro. Add any additional toppings or dressing.
