Chicken Teriyaki Bowl

We love Japanese food here at home. Making this Chicken Teriyaki Bowl the other day made me wonder why I don’t make  Japanese food as frequently as much as we love them.

It’s very easy to make. So easy  it makes me wanna sing… ♪ ♫ Turning Japanes-uh, I think I’m turning Japanes -uh ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫

So what prompted this Japanese dinner?

As Instagram-ed

Well, we decorated Ykaie’s room with pink, Hello Kitty,  more pink, and more Hello Kitty the other day. She now has a pink bed curtain which, I’m absolutely sure,  made her feel like a princess each night, a Hello Kitty Wall Lamp, Hello Kitty Bed Sheet, pink curtains, and Hello Kitty Slippers.

Hello Kitty is Japanese. Hence, a Japanese dinner…LOL! I know I’m really bad at association but I figured I’m kinda good enough with food. So there — sweet, salty, tender teriyaki chicken thigh fillets over steamed rice with some garlic snow peas on the side. Sounds like a little bit of dinner heaven, right?

I’m pretty sure this Chicken Teriyaki Bowl will show up again on our dinner table this week….

Ykaie, Hello Kitty, and the Chicken Teriyaki Bowl — Say Cheeeeeeeeeese!


Chicken Teriyaki Bowl

  • Author: Peachy Adarne


  • 6 large chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 cup of your favorite Teriyaki Marinade, I used Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade
  • OR this Teriyaki Sauce
  • 3 cups Snow peas
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp knorr seasoning
  • canola oil
  • chopped green onions and black sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Marinate your chicken thighs in your teriyaki marinade for half a day or overnight
  2. Poke your chicken thighs with a toothpick for the marinade to penetrate.
  3. You can use a grill, or if you don’t have a grill, you can use a non-stick skillet. Heat 2 tbsp canola oil in your non-stick skillet.
  4. Cook the thighs, smooth side down, for 2 minutes, or until a little golden underneath. Turn each piece over, lower the heat to low, then baste with marinade. Do this to each side a number of times and cook chicken until just cooked through.
  5. The chicken will have developed a teriyaki glaze when cooked.
  6. To prepare the snowpeas, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet. Saute garlic until just cooked, add snowpeas and stir fry for abou a minute. Add knorr seasoning and toss to mix well.
  7. Turn off heat and arrange in a bowl. Slice chicken and top it over steaming hot rice. Put some snowpeas on the side and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped spring onion.
  8. Serve immediately to a Hello Kitty loving girl and to a hungry husband.

  1. Nice segue from Helly Kitty to Teriyaki Bowl. 🙂 Ykaie looks quite happy with her room as well as with her Chicken Teriyaki Bowl. I’d love that bowl as well!

    1. It is nice, right? That made me laugh aloud.

      This recipe looks so simple, I think I would dare to try it! Just one question: how do you know when the garlic is cooked enough?

  2. I love teriyaki meal in Teriyaki Boy but I will try your recipe. I ‘ll check the teriyaki marinade in the grocery. 🙂

  3. I have always wanted to try making chicken teriyaki. But, my mom said there should be mirin. Or maybe the teriyaki sauce has mirin already. hehe!

  4. uy madali lang pala ang homemade teriyaki sauce, I should try! I’m a little wary of instant stocks, seasonings or sauces these days because I’m concerned there might be too much sodium and other harmful stuff for my 21-month old girls. good to know homemade teriyaki sauce is easy! of course wala na ako magagawa dun sa soy sauce 😀 girls love hello kitty too. but I’m not much a fan of pink so I’m hoping they won’t be too much addicted to Kitty to the extent of having it as a room theme, he he. good luck na lang sakin!

  5. Another delicious recipe to try! Or maybe I’ll ask my husband to cook it for us since he’s the chef of the household! Either way we’ll give this a try. 🙂

  6. I thought it was a restaurant dish at first! Ang yummy lang tingnan. And your daughter’s room reminds me so much of my own childhood room: Hello Kitty from top to bottom!

  7. Noel and I agreed to create one unique and special dish every weekend. I love chicken terriyaki and I think I will include your recipe on my list. Madadalas na naman ako sa blog mo 🙂

  8. I love Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade! It makes a quick and easy base for teriyaki baons. I add a little sugar to it, though, and sesame oil if I have it on hand. 🙂
