I have made this a couple times, my son loves it. We usually never have leftovers and it’s so easy to make. He helps me cut up the veggies. He needs the practice, since he wants to go to culinary school.
If you haven’t gotten yourself an Instant Pot, you should. It’s a lifesaver.
I originally found this recipe from: Tastes Better From Scratch.
Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Bowls
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts I cut them into pieces
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 2 cups teriyaki sauce divided
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked Jasmine rices , washed, rinsed and drained thoroughly (or other long grained rice)
- 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (or water)
- 2 tsp toasted sesame oil , or olive oil
- 2 bell peppers chopped
- 1 head fresh broccoli , chopped into florets
- sesame seeds
- green onion , chopped
- sriracha hot sauce (or crushed red pepper flakes)
Rinse rice with water until water runs clear.
Add rice and 1 1/2 cups water (or chicken broth) to the bottom of the instant pot. Spread into a single layer, making sure the rice is covered with water. (It can burn)
Season chicken breast on all sides with salt and pepper, garlic powder and ground ginger. Add chicken to instant pot, nestling it on top of the rice.
Pour 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce over chicken breast. Secure the lid, and set the valve to sealing.
Cook on manual or pressure cook, high pressure, for 4 minutes (IF using a THICK chicken breast, cook for 6-8 minutes high pressure).
Once the Instant Pot timer beeps, allow the pressure cooker to release naturally for 10 minutes., then quick release the remaining pressure.
While the mixture cooks, heat oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add chopped vegetables and sauté until tender. Add a few spoonfuls of teriyaki sauce to the vegetables and toss to coat.
Open instant pot lid and remove chicken to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.
Chop chicken, against the grain and add it and the vegetables back to the pot with the rice. Unless you choose to do this beforehand then you can skip this step.
Spoon servings into bowls and top with desired amount of teriyaki sauce.
Garnish with sesame seeds, green onions, and sriracha hot sauce or crushed red pepper flakes, if desired.
