After all the Super Bowl indulging something healthy is on the menu! My favorite go to take out meal is from Waba Grill. They serve fresh teriyaki chicken bowls. When I saw this Lemon Teriyaki recipe from this months Cooking Light I knew I had to try it. Teriyaki Sauce is super easy to make and tastes much better than the bottled stuff. I find the addition of lemon cuts through the sweetness giving it a nice tang.
I was so happy with this recipe. I love that I can make my own takeout bowl and customize with my favorite veggies. Make a big bowl of rice to have for the week, a batch of the sauce and pre-cut all the veggies. That way when you come home tired from work, you can whip together a healthy dinner.
