Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl

Teriyaki Chicken (1)

Quick and easy dinners are my favorite. I need more of them in my life for sure. I love that this particular recipe tastes just like I got it for take out. It tastes amazing and your whole family will enjoy it! The best part about this recipe is you can prepare it in your own kitchen too with minimal prep and cook time.

All you have to do is cute up your chicken, onions and toss it in the skillet! Make your rice. Of course using your Instant Pot. My Instant Pot saves me time every single time I use it to cook rice. It cooks the white rice in half the time of just doing it on the stove top. Then steaming the veggies is so simple when you can toss them in the microwave for just a few minutes. Thank goodness for modern kitchens that have microwaves. I use mine a lot to heat up things for our meals at my house.

Whisk together in a small bowl brown sugar, soy sauce,  apple cider vinegar, ground ginger, garlic powder and Cornstarch to make the sauce. Pour over the chicken in your pan. Cook and stir constantly until it thickens to a nice sticky sauce.

Prepare your rice in your Instant Pot or on the stove top while your chicken is cooking. If you are doing it in the Instant Pot it is 1 cup of rice to 1 1/2 cups of water. Cook on the rice setting for 10-8 minutes. Steam your veggies in the microwave or on the stove stop as well. I usually put my my frozen veggies in a bowl and place a little water in with them. Microwave them for 2 minutes at a time.

Serve chicken on top of rice and veggies on the side. Enjoy your simple and quick dinner recipe!
