Deconstructed California Roll Bowl


I was craving a California roll one day, but since I'm not a big seafood fan I used chicken instead. You could use crab or even shrimp if you are so inclined.

2 bowls


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup teriyaki marinade

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked short-grain white rice

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil

  • 1 onion, cut into strips

  • 1 zucchini, cut into strips

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

  • 1 avocado, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste, or to taste


  1. Place chicken breasts in a shallow container. Cover with teriyaki marinade and orange juice concentrate. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

  2. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 18 minutes.

  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts, discarding marinade. Cook until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from heat; let rest for 5 minutes. Slice into strips.

  4. Heat peanut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini; cook and stir until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Return chicken strips to the skillet; drizzle soy sauce on top. Stir in black sesame seeds. Fold in avocado gently.

  5. Serve chicken mixture over rice, with wasabi paste alongside.
