How To Make teriyaki chicken bowls

  • 1
    In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, water, mirin, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Set it a side for a few minutes.
  • 2
    Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan in a single layer and cook on both sides until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Work in batches adding more oil if necessary.
  • 3
    If necessary add a little more vegetable oil to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the broccoli and red bell pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp tender. Remove the broccoli and red bell to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • 4
    Reduce the heat to low and add a little more vegetable oil if necessary. Add the garlic and ginger. Cook stirring constantly for 1 minute. Whisk the sauce that you set aside and add it to the skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add the cooked chicken back to the skillet and sprinkle with chopped green onions. Add the rice to a small bowl and top with the teriyaki chicken, broccoli, and red bell pepper.
