  • 3/4 cup chopped carrots (cut into coins then halved or quartered)
  • 2 cups small fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast or thigh
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce + more for drizzling at end
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  • Peel and slice the carrots into coins then cut in half or into quarters if they are large. Cut broccoli into small florets. Set both aside.
  • On the same cutting board, cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the sesame oil. Add chicken and carrots and saute until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. It does not need to be cooked through at this point.
  • Add the rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, to toast the rice. Add teriyaki sauce and water and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, turn heat to low and cover. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli to the skillet, cover and cook another 5 minutes. Drizzle with more teriyaki sauce if desired and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
