Copycat Bibibop Bowls

In my last post, I promised to share some recipes for repurposing leftover chicken. I have quite a few but lately I've been making copycat Bibibop bowls frequently. I set out a bunch of fixings and everyone can build their own to suit their tastes. Personally, I layer a little of everything!

  • Cooked rice (I use jasmine rice)
  • Shredded kale
  • Cooked corn
  • Black beans
  • Sliced cucmber
  • Pickled, sliced jalapenos
  • Matchstick carrots
  • Cooked, diced chicken
  • Pickled onions (recipe below)
  • Yum Yum Sauce (recipe below)
Layer ingredients to suit your taste.

Pickled Onions (these are great on sandwiches and burgers, too!)
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced thin
Boil vinegar, sugar and salt over high heat. Add onion and return to boil. Remove pan from heat and cool to room temperature. Drain when cool and set onions aside.

Yum Yum Sauce

  • 1 1/14 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 T butter, melted
  • 2 T rice wine vinegar
  • 1 T granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp toasted sesame seed oil
Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined.
