  • 1 small head broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 1 small carrot (peeled and sliced)
  • 450 grams skin-on boneless chicken thighs (cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • ¼ cup sake
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 servings cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the carrots for 7-10 minutes or until they're tender. When the carrots are tender, add the broccoli. When the water returns to a full boil, drain the vegetables.
  • While the carrots cook, place the pieces of chicken skin-side down in a cold non-stick frying pan. Turn the heat on to medium-low and let the fat slowly render out of the skin.

  • To assemble the chicken teriyaki bowl, split two servings of rice between two bowls and then top half of the rice in each bowl with the chicken. Next, add the vegetables to the other half and then drizzle the chicken and veggies with the remaining teriyaki sauce.
