Hi, I’m Laura from realmomkitchen.com.  I have a passion for cooking and food, that was fostered by my mother from the time I was a young girl.  I love to share my experiences in the kitchen and that’s why I started a blog 3 years ago.  Real Mom Kitchen is full of delicious family friendly recipes along with photographs of each recipe.  Today I am stopping by The Crafting Chicks to share a quick and easy dinner recipe for chicken teriyaki rice bowls.


Why eat out when you can make your own teriyaki rice bowl in no time?  The recipe begins with a simple teriyaki sauce you make at home.  It is so easy to do and is much better than anything you can find in a bottle at the store.  This recipe will give you enough sauce for a couple meals and stores in the fridge for several weeks.


Then all you need is some steamed rice, frozen stir fry vegetable, and chicken.  For the chicken, you can use breasts, but I really like it with thighs.  I also grabbed my stir fry vegetables from Costco.  They had a really yummy combination that included broccoli, green beans, sugar snap peas, carrots, red bell peppers, shitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, baby corn, and yellow onion.


Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowls

Oil (I use canola)
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut up into bite sized pieces
3 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables
¼ cup teriyaki sauce (see recipe below)
3 cups of steamed rice
Additional teriyaki sauce, if desired


Place a little oil in the bottom of a wok or non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Give the oil and pan a minute or two to get hot.
Then add your chicken to the pan and cook for a few minutes.
Add 1-2 Tbsp of teriyaki sauce and for 3 minutes more until the chicken is fully cooked.
Add the frozen veggies to the pan.  Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minute more, stirring every couple of minutes, until veggies are heated through.
Add the remaining teriyaki sauce to the mixture and serve over the rice.  Serve with additional teriyaki sauce if desired.


Teriyaki Sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
black pepper to taste


In a small saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water until smooth and no lumps. Then, whisk in the sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and ground black pepper.
Bring to a boil over medium heat then reduce it and simmer until thickens.  You will end up with about 1 cup of sauce.

We would like to thank Laura for stopping by and sharing this fabulous recipe.  I’m gonna make my own teriyaki sauce from now on!! 🙂  Go stop by and see what Laura is cooking up today at Real Mom Kitchen and tell her the Crafting Chicks sent you!
