For the SAUCE:

  • 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger use microplane grater
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup water

For the CHICKEN:

  • 1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts Thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (optional)
  • 2 tbsps cooking oil divided (use half for veggies)


  • 4 cups noodles or pasta cooked according to package instructions
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/2 cup cooked edamame

For the CRUNCH:

  • 4 tablespoons toasted seeds or nuts flax seeds or pumpkin seeds


  • In a mason jar, add all of the sauce ingredients. Cover with lid securely, and shake. Pour half the teriyaki sauce in a large bowl and reserve the other half. Add the sliced chicken breasts and the cornstarch to the bowl, and stir to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Cook the noodles according to package instructions.
  • For the vegetables, you can eat them raw or just saute lightly. Steam the broccoli in a covered large saute pan with a 1/4 cup water for 2 minutes, until the broccoli is bright green. Push the broccoli to the outer edge of the pan. In the middle of pan, add in 1 tbsp cooking oil, minced garlic, and red chili flakes. Cook for a few seconds. Add in the julienned carrots. Give everything a good toss. Cook for 2 minutes, until carrots softened and broccoli tender. Season with salt - or pour in just a little bit of the Pineapple Teriyaki sauce to mix in.
  • Let's cook the chicken: Heat the large saute pan over high heat. Add in the remaining 1 tbsp cooking oil. When hot, add in the chicken and cook for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • To assemble the Buddha bowls, divide the noodles, vegetables and chicken to the bowl. Add in the cooked edamame. Drizzle on some Pineapple Teriyaki sauce and top with seeds.
