Years ago I loved occasionally buying a teriyaki chicken rice bowl for lunch from a local Japanese restaurant near my office. It was always a delicious meal! I loved the simple goodness of the chicken, rice, veggies, and the delicious teriyaki glaze on top of the whole thing. Scrumptious!

Recently I decided to make a similar dish for dinner for my husband and I to (hopefully) enjoy. I steamed some rice and broccoli, saute├ęd some green cabbage with green onion and a little bit of soy sauce, and pan-seared some lightly seasoned chicken strips. These were then coated with a teriyaki glaze, and layered in a bowl with extra teriyaki glaze on top, and presto! A filling, tasty, relatively inexpensive, and healthy Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl was cooked and devoured!

The “recipe” I came up with is so simple, I hardly can call it a “recipe”. But for purposes of this little blog, that is, in fact, what I will call it. Okey-dokey?

How To Make A Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl

Hope you will give this easy to fix dinner a try. I really think you’re gonna like it! Start by cooking shredded green cabbage with green onion.

Shredded cabbage and green onions are cooked in skillet.

Add a tiny bit of soy sauce, once the cabbage has cooked down.

Soy sauce is added to the cooked down cabbage and green onions.

Cook the broccoli, using whatever method you prefer. I steamed the broccoli florets on top of my rice cooker, which was easy-peasy!

Broccoli is cooked to add to the teriyaki chicken rice bowl.

Prepare The Chicken

Cut the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into strips.  Season them lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Pan sear the chicken in hot oil on all sides until light brown and cooked through.

Seasoned chicken strips are pan-seared in skillet.

Once the chicken is fully cooked, add the teriyaki glaze to the skillet. Stir often and turn the chicken to coat the pieces with glaze on all sides. Continue cooking until the chicken is heated through.

Teriyaki glaze is added to the skillet full of cooked chicken strips.

Time To Build The Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl

Place steamed white rice on the bottom of the bowl. Divide the rice evenly between both bowls.

Steamed rice goes on the bottom of the teriyaki chicken rice bowl.

Top the rice with the cabbage and green onion mixture, and then follow that with steamed broccoli.

Cooked cabbage and steamed broccoli is added to the rice bowl.

Lay the hot teriyaki chicken strips. I spooned a bit more of the glaze over the teriyaki chicken rice bowl. Sprinkle the chicken strips with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Ready to eat!
