Craving a rice bowl from your favorite Chinese restaurant but can't spare the calories? This citrus-infused chicken teriyaki bowl tastes like takeout but comes in under 450 calories, and it's ready in less than an hour! You've got chicken, broccolini, and rice. It's a full meal in one bowl. What more could you ask for?! Green beans and asparagus are smart substitutes for the broccolini if you can't find it. Top with a little Sriracha or sambal oelek for a flavor-filled kick of heat. If you'll have leftovers, save the remaining soy sauce mixture and drizzle it on just before you eat the warmed dish.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 400°. Cook brown rice according to directions. Combine soy sauce and cornstarch in a small saucepan, stirring with a whisk. Add brown sugar, mirin, and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until thickened. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn; drizzle 1 tablespoon soy sauce mixture over chicken. Place pan in oven; bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until done. Place chicken on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut chicken into slices. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add Broccolini; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Place 1/2 cup rice in each of 4 bowls; top each serving with 4 ounces chicken and 4 ounces Broccolini. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon remaining soy sauce mixture over each serving.
