Why I choose to create 15 minute meals:

There is not denying it 15 minute meals are my jam. With my busy 9-5 job along with long commutes home, being in the kitchen after work for hours is the last thing I want to do. So quick, easy, and delicious 15 minute meals are usually my go to meals to prepare.

Meal prepping saves time:

For me, meal prepping saves me so much time and is something that I consistently do every Sunday. Not only does it save me time during my busy weeks, but it helps reduce food waste, saves us money, and helps me stay on track with eating healthy real food. This week I meal prepped everything on Monday since I was out of town for the weekend and wanted a break from the kitchen. Since I knew I had to get it done before work, I stuck to only meal prepping meals that took 15 minute each, so that I could get it all done within an hour.

Can you eat this meal hot or cold?

As most of you know, for my line of work, I am driving all over Orange County and don’t have your typically work lunch breaks. I have to eat my lunch in my car while driving to my next clients home. It has taken years of me doing this job that I have got it down to what meals taste good cold. This teriyaki chicken bowl is one meal that has been approved by me as a good meal to eat cold. I personally don’t like the taste of reheated chicken so this meal is perfect to enjoy without having to reheat.

What you will need for the teriyaki chicken bowls:

  1. 2-3 Buy Ranch Direct chicken breast chopped into bite size pieces
  2. Primal Kitchen Foods No Soy Teriyaki Sauce
  3. Salt and pepper to taste
  4. Broccoli
  5. Mango
  6. Persian cucumbers
  7. Cauliflower rice
  8. Fourth and Heart California garlic ghee
  9. Coconut aminos
  10. Sesame oil 
Steps to making your teriyaki chicken bowls:

The first step is to chop your chicken and marinate it with the Primal Kitchen Foods No Soy Teriyaki sauce, salt and pepper for about 30 minutes or so. I used about half of the jar to marinate my chicken. Once your chicken is done marinating you are going to add to a pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add in your broccoli and cook until your broccoli is softened (about 5 minutes). While your chicken and broccoli is cooking, start preparing your cauliflower rice in another pan. I heated my ghee in the pan, then added my cauliflower rice along with coconut aminos, sesame oil, and salt and pepper, cooking for about 5 minutes.

The fun part, assembling your bowls:

Then once everything is done cooking you are going to assemble your bowls. I added about 1 cup of the cauliflower rice, 1 cup of the teriyaki chicken and broccoli, cut up 1 Persian cucumber, and about 1/4 cup chopped mango, and sprinkled everything but the bagel sesame seasoning on top.
