Chicken Teriyaki Bowl Recipe

Share Button

Over the years here I’ve written to you all about food and shared my recipe loves. I have also talked about both my cravings and my commitment to listening to my body and feeding it what it needs vs what I want. Lately I’ve been disappointed in my overall inability to curb cravings and my tendency to overeat. I decided to go back to Weight Watchers after 15 years of being away. Back in my 20’s when I joined Weight Watchers I learned about portion sizing, making nutritious choices and found the community feeling of the meetings was the support I needed to be accountable.

So here I am, back at it again…reminding myself to eat all day long…having breakfast even! I’m devouring fruits again and falling in love with my time in the kitchen creating. Today I’m sharing my Chicken Teriyaki Bowl with Broccoli and Sweet Potato which is only 8 Smart Points per serving.

Whether you’re on Weight Watchers or not this is a wonderful choice if you’re focused on nutritious eating my friends!

    Oh wow this sounds and looks so good, my dishes never turn out as great looking as anyone elses, I have no idea what I’m doing wrong, they still taste great, just don’t look the best..lol

    I adore chicken teriyaki but I’m afraid that I don’t like sweet potatoes so I’d substitute baby potatoes for those.

    Thanks for the recipe! The mushrooms are missing from the ingredient list on the printable version of your recipe, so I forgot those at the store but am hoping it doesn’t take away from the recipe too much!
