Teriyaki Chicken Bowl with Rice & Veggies

I love Chinese takeaway… As a matter of fact, if you don’t like Chinese takeaway, then you’re not American (that’s a joke).

However, about ten years ago, I started making my own, and never looked back.

It took three attempts at the sauce before I got what I was looking for... nicely sweet with a perfect bit of sour from the vinegar.

This is my idea of an amusing rice/chicken dish with some good veggies, great taste, and can be thrown together in a minimum of time.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
