Keto Teriyaki Chicken BowlPin recipeFollow us 121.7k

This single serving keto teriyaki chicken bowl is a great lunch option. These bowls are loaded with sweet teriyaki chicken (no sugar!), hibachi style zucchini with sweet onions, broccoli and cauliflower rice. It's packed with protein and nutrients, covering half of your daily potassium needs!

If you’re not feeling cauliflower rice, this recipe is delicious without it sort of a stir fry of sorts. Just mix together the chicken, zucchini and onions, and broccoli and dig in!

You can even swap the cauli-rice for shirataki rice if you like. Shirataki rice is almost zero-carb and when properly prepared it's a delicious keto side that can be infused with any flavors. To reduce the carb count even more, swap the broccoli for more cauliflower or zucchini.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed! I love the addition of avocado - it's always a great way to add more healthy fats and potassium 😊 That would be amazing if you could to share your photos - I'll have to out that in our to-do list.
