Healthy Teriyaki Chicken Bowls

I love Asian food… especially rice, chicken, and a good sauce! I could eat at hibachi grills  3 times a week and be perfectly content in my belly. However, my wallet would disagree.

I found a similar recipe to Teriyaki Chicken bowls forever ago, and over the year I have been slowly tweaking and editing it to fit my own tastes and needs.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • Salt + Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of oil (I use grapeseed or avocado)
  • rice or cauliflower riced
  • broccoli, steamed
    • I typically use fresh, but the frozen works well too + doesn’t go bad!
  • *Optional:
    • 1 bell pepper, diced
    • 1/2 of an onion, diced
Sauce Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup of low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch

I love a lot of sauce, so if I am making this meal for more than 3 people, I double the sauce.

Directions

  • Cook your rice + steam your broccoli
  • Season your chicken with salt + pepper
  • Heat up a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat
    • (often at this point I will add the optional onion + peppers and cook about 3 minutes before adding in the chicken.)
  • Cook chicken (about 5-7 minutes), stirring often
  • As your chicken is cooking, in a small bowl combine your sauce ingredients and wisk until the cornstarch is not clumpy.
  • When the chicken is cooked, dump your sauce into the skillet, stirring consistently until you get a thick glaze
  • Serve immediately over you rice with broccoli.
