Spiralized Broccoli Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

Have you joined the spiralizing craze yet?  

It’s the wonderful invention where you can make virtually any veggie into a noodle. Not only does that make it easier to eat, but it’s much more fun!

I put my spiralizer to good use and combined some tasty Asian flavors along with fresh greens and chicken. Yum!

 

Have you figured out which veggie I spiralized?

Thant’s right…

Broccoli!

The part of the broccoli that gets spiralized in this dish is the stalk. Make sure you pick out long, thick stalks for best results!

 

Cut the base of the stalk near the top where the florets start to branch out.

 

Load the broccoli stalk into the spiralizer and gently turn to achieve long, spiraled broccoli “noodles.”

 

Add the simple Asian dressing to the broccoli and toss to coat.

 

Place the spiralized broccoli on top of a bed of greens.

 

We sautéed boneless, skinless chicken thighs in a pan on the stove with teriyaki glaze.

 

We thinly sliced the thigh and placed it right on top of the spiralized broccoli.

Yum!

 

I kept this particular version carb-free but I imagine a layer of rice on the bottom of this dish would be extra satisfying!

So tasty!

Here is the recipe for ya…
