TERIYAKI CHICKEN RICE BOWLS

Teriyaki just happens to be one of my favorite things. The sweet thick sauce over some rice is basically dinnertime perfection. I remember eating leftover rice with teriyaki sauce as an after school snack… way back in the day!

These rice bowls are also a kid favorite because you serve it over rice and I am pretty sure all kids love rice. You can even go low carb and eat just the meat mixture or eat it as a lettuce wrap.

I’ve had the leftovers over some chopped lettuce and it’s really good that way too.

It’s a dinner you can feel good about serving the kids. Lean protein rich ground chicken and fresh veggies. I have an easier time feeding my kids vegetables if they’re mixed in with something, like this teriyaki sauce. 

There are so many options of what to serve this with. I always cook up some white rice but brown rice, quinoa, or even cauliflower rice would all be great too. 

It’s also fun to buy some frozen egg rolls and cook those up to go with these teriyaki chicken rice bowls.

You will need some ground chicken, along with the ingredients for the homemade teriyaki sauce, finely chopped carrots and broccoli. 

Prepare the teriyaki sauce in a saucepan on the stove top. While that is simmering, cook the ground chicken along with some garlic and onion powder. Once it’s cooked, add in the chopped veggies and the teriyaki sauce.

Let that simmer for about 10-15 minutes so the flavors can come together and the veggies can get softer.

MY TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE

  • The most important thing is to CUT THE VEGGIES SMALL. I love using baby carrots. They’re already peeled and small, so just slice them really thinly and you’re good to go. 
  • I have never used frozen broccoli in this recipe and I would not recommend it. I think it would produce too much water.
  • Have the vegetables chopped and ready to go before you get the ground chicken cooking. The chicken will cook fast.

This stuff smells so good. I wish sometimes my blog had one of those ‘scratch n sniff’ things on the pictures. That would be awesome.

It’s crazy that with only a few ingredients you can have a yummy, flavorful, and easy dinner on the table.

Ingredients
Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed (I use garlic paste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (I use ginger paste)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
Chicken
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (I use garlic paste)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • chopped green onions, sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • cooked rice for serving
Instructions
  1. Combine soy sauce, water, brown sugar, granulated sugar, rice vinegar, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir with a whisk until sugar is dissolved.

  2. Once sugar is dissolved, mix together the cornstarch and water and pour that in. Stir and let it come to a low boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and let simmer while you cook the meat. 

  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add ground chicken, onion powder and garlic. Cook and crumble until the meat is no longer pink.

  4. Add grated carrots and chopped broccoli and stir well. Pour the thickened teriyaki sauce into the veggies and meat, stir and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes. You may have to turn the heat to low if it's boiling or getting too hot. 

  5. Serve over cooked rice and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

Recipe Notes

I love using the tubes of garlic paste and ginger paste for this recipe. You can find them in the refrigerated area of the produce section. You can also grate your own fresh ginger and use that instead. You could also use garlic powder in place of the garlic cloves, or even the minced garlic that comes in the jars. Lots of options!

 

It's easiest to use baby carrots in this recipe. They're already peeled and small, so all you have to do is slice them very thinly.

    November 12, 2017 at 2:44 pm Can you use frozen broccoli? Could use red wine vinagar instead of rice vinager?

      November 13, 2017 at 11:59 am Yes you could use frozen broccoli. I would make sure that it's thawed so that you don't have a bunch of water in the skillet pan from it. Red wine vinegar should be fine to use. I've never used it so I can't say for sure.

    February 16, 2018 at 9:52 pm Made this as written except used asparagus instead of broccoli bc that is what I had on hand. It was good. Maybe slightly too sweet but that's an easy fix. My seven year old ate her whole plate in record time!

    May 10, 2018 at 11:05 pm Fantastic. Made a double portion. Poured 1/3 of the sauce in, used the rest to drizzle as needed. It was a hit.

      June 15, 2018 at 10:39 pm So glad you loved this one Anne. I've never tried it with brown rice but now I am curious. Maybe I could even disguise the brown rice from my kids, haha :) They insist they only like white rice!

    August 9, 2018 at 6:39 pm We really enjoyed this recipe. I put it over frozen cauliflower rice! Still yummy. I’m sure it would be even better with rice but I’m trying to save in carbs and calories right now. Thanks for a great recipe! :)

    April 17, 2019 at 4:38 pm I did not have brown sugar handy. I believe it made the recipe too salty side due to the soy sauce. I even used low sodium. Any suggestions how that could of been made less salty?

      April 18, 2019 at 8:58 pm You can always reduce the soy sauce slightly. Maybe I misunderstood the comment but it sounds like you did not add the brown sugar? That would definitely make the dish taste saltier because the brown sugar is a nice balance to the salty soy sauce.
