New Product Combines Flavorful Ingredients to Expand Popular Line of Rice Bowls

SAN DIEGO, Nov 06, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- With Thanksgiving just around the corner, dinner plates across America will soon be piled high with turkey, potatoes and grandma's green bean casserole. But if you have a hankering now for a zestier blend of protein, carbohydrates and veggies, try the new Southwest Chicken Bowl at Jack in the Box(R) restaurants, which is available beginning Monday, Nov. 9 for a limited time.

The new Southwest Chicken Bowl is made with fajita-seasoned chicken, rice, grilled onions and peppers, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese and a tangy cilantro lime sauce.
