Easy Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Bowls with Sriracha Pineapple Crema over a bed of Coconut Ginger Red Beans and Rice – the textures, the teriyaki, the sweet heat, the splashes of lime, the hints of ginger and coconut – you will fall in love! Easy enough for everyday, layered flavors of yum for company.
I’ve always been a “foodie.” As a small freckle-faced blonde at the dinner table, I channeled “What About Bob” with my dramatic yet sincere, “mmmmm… mmmmmm…” I just couldn’t help myself.
But what I remember even more than the food was the time we shared around the dinner table. It was our time. Not piano, gymnastics, baseball or tennis time, not schoolwork, chores or CF treatments time. Even with five kids and all our bustling schedules, my dear mother always made this precious time a priority. Today, our lives are as busy as ever but thanks to Campbell’s Grill Sauces, creating real delicious meals with the little time and energy we have can be easier than ever. The first time I experienced the awesomeness that is Campbell’s Grill Sauces was a busy Sunday. We had just gotten home from church, we were starving, had meetings in an hour and the last thing I wanted to do was wait for, let alone cook, an elaborate meal. So I threw some chicken on the barbecue, potatoes in the microwave and broccoli in the oven. I tossed my grilled chicken with Campbell’s Lemon Pepper Grill Sauce and in 15 minutes we had a delectable real dinner that didn’t interrupt our real life. I had just discovered an ace up my sleeve. A quick, easy, minimal ingredient, minimal effort, minimal clean up, cravilicious ace. You can find your own Campbell’s Grill Sauces “ace,” including Lemon Pepper Chicken, Grilled Teriyaki Chicken and Cheddar Applewood Bacon Chicken, at most Wal-Mart stores and other select retailers. Trust me, you want this ace…
Especially Campbell’s Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Sauce so you can make these easy Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Bowls with Sriracha Pineapple Crema. These bowls are perfect for all those busy real life nights but are also delectable enough (“restaurant quality” says my very harsh critic, Patrick) and stress free for company. No one would believe how easy they are! Like all Campbell’s Grill Sauces, the chicken is ready in 3 easy steps. Simply: 1) season chicken with salt and pepper, 2) Grill, 3) Slice, and toss with sauce.
How easy is that? 3 steps to drool-worthy teriyaki chicken that is super tender and doused in a sauce comprised of soy sauce, pineapple juice, mirin, scallions, ginger, and sesame seeds. It’s the real deal. And you barely had to lift a finger. To turn the teriyaki chicken into a well-rounded meal, I added grilled vegetables over a bed of Coconut Ginger Red Beans and Rice, which is so good, it earned its very own post.
And let us not forget grilled vegetables. Don’t you just love how grilled vegetables always taste so fresh and perfect with only some olive oil, salt and pepper? But if you want to salivate over already perfect vegetables, drizzle them with a little Sriracha Pineapple Crema. Or a lot. Because this stuff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It radiates the sweetness of pineapple and can be made as spicy as you like depending on the amount of Sriracha. It takes no extra time to indulge in this Pineapple Sriracha Crema because while your chicken and veggies are grilling, add Sriracha, pineapple marmalade, cilantro and sour cream to your blender and blend until smooth. That’s it for this gourmet crema.
Finally, the ensemble is united over a bed of Coconut Ginger Red Beans and Rice. Because teriyaki chicken and rice go together like bacon and eggs. This rice is infused with a bounty of flavor and all you do is add all the ingredients to a pan – most of which you probably have on hand – and let it simmer for 20 minutes while your chicken is grilling and then stir in fresh lime juice and cilantro. I was eating this Rice by the spoonfuls. (But if I’m completely honest it was by the handfuls – I know, gross – my hands were clean – crazy clean if you know my habits. I just couldn’t help myself. The rice is that good!)
Now be prepared to get blown A-W-A-Y to stress free paradise with these Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Bowls with Sriracha Pineapple Crema. Deliciousness made possible by Campbell’s Grilling Sauces – so you can make a delectable meal in whatever time you ave, leaving you with enough energy to enjoy precious real life and enough enthusiasm, you might even be tempted to channel Bob…
