READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

This is a quick work night dinner we throw together when we are busy. Tasty and healthy, but best of all, my family will eat it! :) I usually grab a mixed fresh bag of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots when time is short and steam it 3/4 of the way through the rice ( times depend on your individual steamer - mine takes 50 minutes for long grain brown rice so I time the rest of mel accordingly). Brown rice is definitely a heathy choice, a little nutty or firmer in texture, but give them this flavorful dish and they will gulp down the rice and those dreaded veggies! **Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste and Glaze with Honey and Pineapple** is what gives this recipe the ease and flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Steam rice accoring to directions for your steamer. (I use a Krups with multiple bastes so 3/4 way through I can add my veggie basket to steam).
  2. As rice steams half way through time, grill your chicken breasts.
  3. When rice is 3/4 of the way cooked, steam your vegetables (at this point, chicken should be almost done).
  4. Baste chicken with teriyaki glaze, turning once and repeating.
  5. Remove from heat and allow meat to rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Plate rice, vegetables and sliced chicken breast.
  7. Drizzle additional teriyaki sauce as desired.
  8. Enjoy!
