Easy Eats: Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

November 6, 2012

LeMoine Family Kitchen shares their recipe for teriyaki chicken bowls with Foodista readers.  This quick and easy meal is great when you have a limited amount of time to spend in the kitchen.  Chunks of chicken are simmered in teriyaki served over rice with pineapple.  This meal freezes great so make extra for another dinner down the road.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

4 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (this is why i froze a bunch!)
1 bottle teriyaki sauce (i found a tropical teriyaki so tried it out)
4-5 scallions, sliced
3 cups of cooked rice
juice from 1 lime, divided
olive oil
4 tomato, diced
3 Tbsp bell pepper, diced
# Tbsp red onion, diced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 small can pineapple chunks
salt & pepper

Into a slow cooker, set on low, add the chicken breasts, scallions and teriyaki sauce. Cook for 4 hours. When done, shred the meat using two forks and toss the chicken back in the sauce to coat.
The rice is simple! Take 3 cups of cooked rice, squeeze the juice from half a lime, a drizzle of olive oil, a few handfuls of chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
Now for the fabulous salsa! In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, juice from 1/2 a lime, a couple handfuls of chopped cilantro, salt, pepper and a small drizzle of olive oil.
