Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Bowls are delicious rice, chicken and veggie bowls with coconut rice, sauteed vegetables, and chicken topped with a sweet and spicy homemade teriyaki sauce!
This homemade hawaiian teriyaki chicken bowl is amazing. It tastes just like the hawaiian teriyaki chicken and rice bowl from a delicious restaurant we have here called Rumbi.
The delicious chicken bowl starts with a homemade coconut rice, topped with fresh sauteed veggies, and sauteed chicken. The vegetables are a mix of broccoli, shredded carrots, zucchini squash, and celery.
Its then topped with a homemade sweet and spicy Hawaiian teriyaki sauce. The sauce has a bit of a spicy kick, so I recommend you add a little less chili garlic sauce if you don’t want the kick. I think it blends nicely with the cool slightly sweet coconut rice.
Rumbi has red beans with their rice as well, but I like it without. If you want to add them you can mix a can of them in when you are cooking the rice.
The chicken and vegetables would be delicious served over white rice, brown rice, or noodles as well!
Mix all the ingredients together when you’re eating for the best flavor ever!
Even if you have never been to Rumbi Island Grill before, you will love this combination of flavors! But if you have been, and love these bowls as much as I do, you can now satisfy your craving without going into the restaurant.

**Recipe makes a lot of rice. You might not like the ratio of rice to chicken and vegetables. You can double the chicken and vegetables and sauce if you see the need. (I haven't tried halving the rice, but it should work too!)
**Rice can also be made in a rice cooker, add all ingredients to a rice cooker and cook with "white rice" option.
