The Egg Bowl
A hip grain (quinoa, farro, barley, you choose), a delicious sauce, and some super fresh vegetables are all you need to put this entree together.

The truth is there are few occassions where a fried piece of chicken does not taste delicious. And you win for having the guts to throw your sandwich into the ring in the first place.
Try this one with Alabama white sauce and pickles.
