Teriyaki Chicken Rice

Does your family love teriyaki? Try my teriyaki chicken rice is perfect for busy families, it’s delicious, colourful and packed with a healthy balance of protein, carbs, and veggies. This easy-to-make dinner allows you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying your meal together.

Sometimes I find it hard to feed the family and tick all the boxes…on a weeknight, I like recipes that are fast and fairly easy, but also healthy and delicious! I think this Teriyaki Chicken Rice has all the boxes ticked and that’s why I have it on high rotation on our weekly meal plans.

Depending how much time you have, you can follow the recipe to make your own teriyaki sauce, or feel free to use ready-made teriyaki marinade from the supermarket to make this a super weeknight easy dinner idea.

You can also use any vegetables you like, such as capsicum, carrot, broccoli, snow peas or whatever is in your fridge. I used a frozen pack of vegetables as it’s quick and easy.

To shred the chicken, I use two forks, which makes it easy to pull the cooked chicken breast apart into shreds that are perfect for this recipe.
