Can I change this recipe?
Yes! Here are a few easy changes you can make depending on diet and personal preference:
- Swap the chicken for a different protein like Carolina Ground Turkey (#3568), Pacific Seafood Cooked & Peeled White Shrimp (#1812), or tofu. If you use shrimp or tofu, we recommend still marinating before cooking.
- For a low carb option, use Flav-R-Pac Riced Cauliflower (#2743) or Tattoeed Chef Zucchini Spirals (#2803) seasoned with Regal Coarse Sea Salt (#1147), diced poblano pepper, cilantro, Kirkland Minced Garlic (#1289), Flav-R-Pac Chopped Onion (#5772), poblano pepper and lime juice.
- Replace the honey with C & H Brown Sugar (#2261) for a sweeter sauce.

Korean Rice Bowl
Yield: 6 servings
- 1 bag Simplot Cilantro Lime Rice & Fire-Roasted Corn Fiesta (#2761)
- 3 Tbsp Korean chili paste
- 3 Tbsp soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp Busy Bee Light Amber Honey (#1149)
- 2 tsp Kirkland Minced Garlic (#1289)
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- Regal Coarse Sea Salt (#1147) and AP Coarse Black Pepper (#1028), to taste
- 3-5 Tbsp BBF Avocado Oil (#3516), split
- 3 cups Chicken Breast Pieces (#2620)
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 6 eggs, fried
- Toppings: Green onion, kimchi, sirarcha mayo
- First, create a chicken marinade by combining the chili paste, soy sauce, honey, salt, pepper, garlic and ginger in a Ziploc Gallon Bag (#1979). Add the thawed chicken, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best flavor.
- Then, add 2-4 tablespoons oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high. Add the rice and sauté for 7-10 minutes, covered, stirring frequently.
- In another pan, heat the remaining oil over medium-high. Add the chicken, reserving the marinade, and saute until cooked through and golden brown. Remove the chicken, then carefully pour the marinade and simmer for at least 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Add the chicken back to the pan to coat.
- To serve, place the chicken on top of the rice, followed by a fried egg, green onion, sesame seeds, kimchi, and sirarcha mayo. Enjoy!
