Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Bowls
These Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Bowls are one of my go-to meals for weeknight dinners. It is quick, easy, and all my kids love it. The tender bites of chicken and the flavorful veggies are just too good! For the marinade, I love to use Mr. Yoshidas. You can find it in the grocery store in the condiment aisle. However, if you have another teriyaki sauce that you like that will work too!
What Vegetables Can I Use in Air Fryer Chicken Teriyaki Bowls?
The nice thing about these bowls is that you can customize it depending on what is in the your fridge. I like to use zucchini, peppers, and carrots, but you can add anything you’d normally add to a teriyaki or stir fry dish. Next, I will list some options below.
- baby corn
- snap peas
- snow peas
- green beans
- water chestnuts
Easy Air Fryer Chicken Dinners
Recently, I have been using my air fryer a ton and I feel like I’ve cracked the code on easy chicken dinners. My formula is chicken + veggies + sauce + grains. Every variation I’ve tried has been so yummy and you cook them all the exact same way in the air fryer. This recipe is a perfect example: chicken + carrots, zucchini and peppers + teriyaki sauce + rice. Here are some of my other favorites:
- Pesto: chicken + asparagus, zucchini and onion + pesto + pasta
- BBQ: chicken + red pepper, red onion and pineapple + bbq sauce + rice
- Greek: chicken + red onion, red pepper and cherry tomatoes + greek dressing + farro (top with feta cheese!)
Let me know if you try any of these or if you have any recipes that fit this formula!
For a finishing touch on my bowl, I like to add sliced green onion and sesame seeds. However, you can also add a drizzle of Sriracha for a little spice!
Yes, you can cook raw chicken in the air fryer! Whenever you are cooking chicken just remember to use a meat thermometer and check that the temperature reaches at least 165 degrees.
Air fried chicken is healthier than a lot of other preparations because it uses less oil. It has the same benefits as cooking in the oven, but it cooks much faster!
