EASY ASIAN CHICKEN RICE BOWL
It has rained for a week straight here in Florida and I’m about to lose my mind. I enjoy the occasional rainy day because it brings everyone inside and screams “Let’s watch movies and snuggle!” Rain also makes me want to make chocolate chip cookies which my family loves but it’s not so nice on the waistline.
But an entire week has me going crazy. I could never survive in Seattle. This Arizona born girl needs sunshine to feed my soul. I physically can feel a mood shift when the sun comes out.
For all my friends out west this is the last week of school which means kids full-time at home. You have to have an arsenal of quick meals and I have your back with this Easy Asian Chicken Rice Bowl.
Basically you throw everything together with a homemade Asian dressing and call it dinner. Ta da!
CAN I USE PULLED PORK?
Absolutely. Pulled pork is a great sub here for rotisserie chicken however my family loves chicken in this recipe.
DO I HAVE TO USE SESAME OIL?
If you like cooking Asian food, you’ll want to make sure you have sesame oil on hand as it gives it that authentic taste and it simply cannot be replaced by other oils. You’ll use it in this Sesame Chicken Dip and this Beef Broccoli Stir Fry.
DO I EAT THIS HOT OR COLD?
This Easy Asian Chicken Rice Bowl can be eaten EITHER hot or cold. I prefer it hot but cold is great too.

What can be substituted for edamame? We do not lole
Peas are a great substitution.
It’s been unseasonably cool here too with rain in the forecast for later in the week. This looks perfectly yummy!
Yum! This sounds delicious!
This looks so fun and refreshing for summer!
Can you buy the minced ginger in a jar in the seasoning section? Also, do you think adding peanuts or cashews would be good?
I actually buy it in the the produce section in a squeeze jar. I don’t use ginger that often. And cashews would be so good.
I know edamame is supposed to be used in this dish, but my family doesn’t like them. What would be a good substitute? I was thinking peas or snow peas or broccoli. Any suggestions? Thanks
Definitely peas or broccoli!!
hey girl- this looks so yummy!
