Buddha Bowl with Chicken, Spinach & Peanut Sauce

“This is one of the best meals I’ve made in a long time. Lots of wonderful flavors and don’t skip the pineapple! It makes the dish. You can substitute white or brown rice if you’d like, but if you do, add some cilantro to bowl somewhere else.” – April Ferre
