Honey Ginger Chicken Bowls

I was really craving Chinese food delivery the other day. I decided to do a fake-out meal instead and made these honey ginger chicken bowls!


  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger, shredded (approx. 1/2 inch cube)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup rice (brown or white)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced (approx. 1/2 small onion)
  • 1 cup of small carrots, sliced (approx. 1 small head)
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets, sliced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Add the chicken, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, honey, and sesame oil to a Ziploc bag.  Move the chicken around to ensure it is evenly covered with the marinade.  Let sit in the refrigerator for 1 to 12 hours.
  2. Cook rice according to package instructions.
  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat.  Add olive oil and onions.  Sauté until soft, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Add the carrots and broccoli and sauté until the carrots start to soften, approximately 3 minutes.
  5. Add the red pepper and pour the chicken and marinade into the skillet and sauté until the chicken pieces are cooked through, approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Combine the cooked rice with the contents of the skillet and remove from heat.  Scoop into 4 bowls.  Top with the green onion and sesame seeds and serve.
