When you think of Teriyaki, do you think of sweet and salty flavors, crunchy vegetables, and savory meats? You most certainly will with this dish. Asian food prep and weeknight meals just got easier with this super simple recipe for Teriyaki Chicken and Rice.
Teriyaki Chicken and Rice
This recipe might just be the quickest busy-night meal I have in my back pocket. It looks and tastes like I worked to make it happen, but the secret to my efficiency is really in the store-bought rotisserie chicken breast and bottled Teriyaki sauce. Well, those, along with my precooked rice, which I almost always have on hand. And when I don’t, the rice cooker makes it on-demand, in a flash.
The steps in this recipe couldn’t be quicker! Once you’ve shredded the chicken, chopped a few vegetables, and sautéed everything together, this meal is pretty much on your dinner table in a flash.

Tools I use for this recipe
Are you thinking about Teriyaki Chicken and Rice as a weekday lunch? You’re on the right track because this dish is even better the second or third day, warm or cold. To reheat, you can microwave it or pan-sauté it again until warmed through. Or, eat it cold. Your choice.
