Spicy Honey Chicken Rice Bowls

This recipe features U.S.-grown Medium Grain Rice and comes to us from our friend Tawnie Graham of Kroll's Korner.

Ingredients

Rice

  • 1 cup U.S.-grown medium grain rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Dash of salt

Spicy Honey Sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon mirin or rice wine (not rice vinegar or rice wine vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Chicken

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thawed
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Assembly

  • 1 head broccoli, roasted or steamed
  • 1/4 cup green onions, diced

Instructions

Rice

  1. Cook the rice. Follow the package directions or use this easy stove top method: Combine rice with water and salt in a small saucepan. Heat to boiling; stir once or twice. Reduce the heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. Fluff with fork.

Spicy Honey Sauce

  1. Combine soy sauce, honey, Sriracha, mirin, garlic and ginger in a bowl or measuring cup. Whisk until smooth.

Chicken

  1. Cube thawed, boneless skinless chicken breasts into bite size pieces.
  2. Heat olive oil in a nonstick frying pan. Add half of the chicken and cook until nicely browned. Pro tip: don’t cook all of the chicken at once. The pan will get crowded and it won’t stay hot enough. We want tasty browned chicken pieces! Place first half of chicken on a paper towel lined plate and cook the rest of the chicken.
  3. Pour all of the chicken and the sauce into the pan to bring to a simmer.
  4. Thicken sauce. Mix the cornstarch and water together and whisk into the sauce.

Assembly

  1. Divide rice evenly into bowls. Top each bowl with chicken and broccoli (or veggie of choice). Garnish with green onions if desired. Enjoy!
