TERIYAKI CHICKEN BOWLS-

You can serve this teriyaki chicken in a bowl style. This is our go-to serving option for the chicken teriyaki. Here is what you need to make the ultimate teriyaki chicken bowls:

  • GRAIN– You can use either rice or noodles. We love serving the chicken over a bed of fluffy white rice. You can also serve it over lo mein noodles or linguine pasta.
  • VEGGIES– I love adding steamed broccoli to our chicken teriyaki bowls. But you can use any other veggie preference. Whenever I have leftover roasted vegetables, I’ll add those.
  • ADD-ONS– Once the bowl is assembled, drizzle some homemade spicy mayo over top of everything.
