Watch out Flame Broiler!

I heart me some Flame Broiler. Teriyaki chicken, brown rice, a scattering of scallions, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Add a few dabs of hot chili sauce, and I'm content. But, I know I can make the same thing at home for pennies on the dollar, so tonight I challenged myself to do just that. 2 chicken breasts, a 1/2 cup or so of teriyaki sauce, some seasonings, brown rice, and there you go! This is really fast, just make sure you start the brown rice a good 30 minutes before the chicken; it takes forever to cook!

Teriyaki Chicken Bowls Printable Recipe Source: Me

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup soyaki (or your fav teriyaki sauce)
pepper to taste
a dash of salt
a dash of cayenne
1-2 teaspoons no-salt seasoning (its a mixture of various seasonings)
2 cups uncooked brown rice
chili paste to taste
1-2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Cook the brown rice in your rice cooker, starting about 20-30 minutes before you cook the chicken.

Chop the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces. Heat a large, non-stick pan over medium high heat and add the chicken once the pan is hot. Season with the salt, pepper, cayenne, and no-salt seasoning. Cook on medium-high heat. When you have about 2-3 minutes of cooking time left,pour the soyaki over the chicken and cook the rest of the way through, so that the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.

Serve the rice in a bowl, spoon the chicken on top, sprinkle with the seasame seeds. Dab a bit of chili paste on top if you like some heat! Drizzle an additional tablespoon of soyaki on the top and enjoy.
(note: I didn't have any scallions on hand, or I would have chopped a few up and added them on top of the chicken.)

kinda like pollo bowls, only spicier

um, not like pollo bowls. this is rice and chicken. that's it.

I was referring to the idea of flavored chicken in a bowl atop of rice, not the actual ingredients that make up your recipe versus pollo bowls. Maybe more like the teriyaki bowls we used to get at Golden Bowl in Covina.

Janet said...

yeah, I was thinking it was like Golden Bowl. Have you been to Flame Broiler? They are like Golden Bowl, but not as good.

I think so, but can't remember. there is one close by.
