Lemongrass Chicken Bowl

This is a super fresh bowl and is entirely gluten free. Almost everything in this bowl was marinated including the carrots, cucumbers, and chicken. Marinating food is such a simple way to increase the flavor in ingredients and it doesn't have to take long at all. I marinated the veggies while cooking the chicken and by the time I was ready to put the dish together, the veggies had soaked up all those delicious flavors!

I also scored the chicken breast to help absorb the marinade. You could substitute chicken breast for thighs, tofu, or shrimp.

Score the chicken then place into the marinade for at least 30 minutes
Heat a pan (add oil if the pan is non-stick) then place the chicken on the pan
Cook the chicken for 8 minutes on one side, then flip
Once the chicken is nearing fully cooked, add the reserved marinade
For the Veggies & Noodles
In one bowl, marinate the carrot sticks with rice vinegar and gocharu
In another bowl, marinate the sliced cucumber in tamari sauce
While these marinate, cook your vermicelli noodles as per labelled instructions
One green onion, sliced
Lastly, coat your avocado with the black and white sesame seeds (this is optional but gives them a nice crunch!)
Serve the noodles, veggies, and chicken with lettuce, tomato, and sriracha if desired
Be sure to get all the saucey marinade onto your bowl!
  • Marinate the chicken and/or use chicken thighs overnight for more flavor
