Fancy an easy to make main dish that's nourishing and uber-fashionable?
Then why not try my Japan-Hawaiian fusion dish - the Teriyaki Chicken Poke bowl? I started by making some sushi rice (which gives the dish a little more flavour than leaving the rice plain). Then I fried some chicken and added the ingredients for a teriyaki sauce as I went so that the flavour was nicely infused by the time the chicken was done. Added to that, I made some sweet scrambled eggs (they don't have to be sweet but it helps vary the flavours if you don't mind the extra calories).
Then for the vegetables, I marinated some thinly sliced cucumber and avocado in a little salt and rice vinegar.
Next, it was simply a matter of covering the rice in this blanket of tasty morsels and putting it in front of a ravenous tummy. I garnished this dish with a few segments of baby tomato - just to give a little more veg (and some nice, contrasting colour for the photo, if i'm honest!)
So, has this dish tickled your taste buds? If it has, you can find the written recipe below and the youtube tutorial by clicking Teriyaki Chicken Poke bowl or just scroll to the bottom of the page.
