  • 3/4 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 small head broccoli cut into florets
  • 2 large chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Scallions chopped, to taste


  1. Cook rice according to package directions. Steam or boil broccoli until desired tenderness is reached. Chop the scallions.

  2. Meanwhile, prep your chicken and add it to a large ZipLoc bag along with the cornstarch. Toss until it's coated.

  3. Add the sauce ingredients (garlic, brown sugar, ginger, mirin, soy sauce, water) to a small bowl and stir together.

  4. Add the oil to a skillet, along with the chicken. Give it a stir and cook it over medium-high heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside.

  5. Pour the sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for a few more minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

  6. Divide the rice, broccoli, and chicken evenly among your four containers. Garnish with scallions. I suggest reheating these bowls in the microwave.

Recipe Notes

  • Handy trick: the ginger is much easier to grate if it's frozen. I always keep some fresh ginger in the freezer and I use my Microplane grater/zester to easily grate it. 
  • These are the meal prep bowls pictured. If you prefer rectangular ones, try these.
  • This recipe makes 4 reasonably-sized portions, but if you want larger portions, 3 may be more realistic. You could always add more rice or another chicken breast if you find it isn't enough to make 4 big enough portions.
