Asian Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowl--Delicious!!


I love having ideas for meals that I can throw together for my family or a group of people that don't require hours of preparation, nor cost too much money, and yet they're delicious, fun, flavorful and healthy! 
 
This is one of those easy to prepare, budget friendly meals that can easily be increased to serve a large group or family! It's delicious, fun, flavorful and healthy! What more can you ask for?


What's the teriyaki sauce, you ask?


It is Soy Vay's Veri Veri Teriyaki. You will find it in the International section of your grocery store. The other special ingredient that makes this dinner easy and delicious is a mixed salad - Asian Cashew Chopped Salad. I find this at Costco. It comes complete with Asian Sesame Dressing and it is delicious. If you do not have a Costco near you, you could substitute with another Asian mixed salad, but this is the best choice!


Ingredients:
(Serves 10-12)
 
1 bag Asian Cashew Chopped Salad
2 Bottles Soy Vay Teriyaki (if you prepare for less you'll only need 1 bottle)
4 lbs chicken
4 cups uncooked, long grain rice (brown or white)
1 fresh pineapple, diced
2 teaspoons canola oil

If you are serving 2-4 people, you would only need 1 chicken breast per person, and enough rice based on the servings suggested on the package, and only 1 bottle of Soy Vay Teriyaki sauce.


Prepare your chicken by rinsing and patting dry with a paper towel. Cube chicken (or slice in strips) and place in a large glass bowl. Shake the bottle of Teriyaki sauce very well to mix it up and pour over your chicken. Stir, cover with plastic and marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours before cooking.
 
If you're making a smaller portion, pour 1/2 of the bottle over your chicken to marinate, and save the remaining Teriyaki sauce to serve over rice bowls. 

Discard the marinade and do not re-use it.

Preparation:

Begin cooking rice according to directions on packaging.

Heat a wok or large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan; cook, turning chicken until it is fully cooked. When I cook large amounts of chicken in my wok I cook 1/2 of the chicken at a time. Once it's all cooked I return all of the chicken to the wok for 1 minute to reheat before placing in the serving dish.
Combine the Asian Chopped Salad in your serving bowl, pour dressing and seasonings on top and mix together.

It's time to enjoy! Fill your bowl with rice, chicken, chopped salad, fresh pineapple, and serve with additional Teriyaki sauce over the top.

Additional toppings:  chopped green onions and cilantro.
We love this meal! It's one of those recipes that can be adapted for a few people or a large group. It's a delicious recipe for a special occasion and easy enough to prepare for a week night dinner.
If you try this recipe, let me know what you think!  I hope you enjoy!
Best regards,
