Teriyaki Bowl

teriyakibowl

I first came in contact with teriyaki sauce during my year as an exchange student in California. (This was also when I first made contact with culinary highlights such as nacho cheese, fresh coriander/cilantro, bagels, Kraft Macaroni&Cheese, Sunny Delight, honey roasted cashews and I could keep going with this list for quite a while, actually.)

It was, as far as I can recall, in the form of a teriyaki bowl at Jack In The Box. For fast food, it seemed fairly healthy. (But of course, once I discovered the Ultimate Cheese Burger, there was no turning back.) Anyway. I had a hankering for something like it a few days ago, and made this simple bowl with chicken, onions, broccoli and sliced carrots over white rice.

I fried the chicken in bite-sized pieces until almost cooked through, and then added about 300 ml of ready-made teriyaki sauce. I fried the onions in a separate pan until really well browned, and I boiled broccoli florets and carrots in salted water for a few minutes. All the veggies went in with the chicken, and that was pretty much that. Simple and fast, but very satisfying.

I find teriyaki is very comfort-foody for me too. Maybe it's the salty-sweet combo with lots of different meaty and crunchy bits. Who cares why - it's wonderful.

I am a big fan of teriyaki. I like teriyaki wings, in particular. So, this chicken bow looks great!

It's so frustrating when you find a favourite food abroad that you can't get at home... Great blog/food/recipes. I get a lot of inspiration from reading you posts!
