Lemon Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

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.
