Here’s a fresh and easy chicken teriyaki dinner that’s great for any day of the week! This is an ultra quick dinner, and it packs a ton of flavor, thanks to Edo Japan’s bottled teriyaki sauce!

Load up those toppings too – sliced carrots, edamame, and thinly sliced red pepper work well here, but feel free to add fresh herbs and even some fresh thinly sliced cucumber!

What you need:

  • Edo Japan Teriyaki Sauce – you can get it at your local Edo Japan location or order online at Edo Japan.
  • Iceberg lettuce – this creates an ultra crunchy lettuce wrap, but you can sub for butter lettuce if you want less crunch.
  • Rice – use whichever rice you prefer and cook as per the directions on the bag.
  • Toppings – Edamame, thin sliced carrots and red pepper, with diced green onion are my go to, but use which ever veggies you want here.
  • Ground Chicken – feel free to swap for any ground meat of choice or even dice up chicken breast if you prefer.
  • Want to kick it up a bit? add a bit of hot sauce to the pan as the chicken is cooking.

How to make them:

  • Get the rice started, cooking it as per the directions on the package.
  • Start by heating a pan and cooking your chicken.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, add the bottle of Edo Japan Teriyaki sauce.
  • Turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Assemble lettuce wraps with rice, chicken and veggies.
  • Enjoy!

Storage and Reheating

The cooked chicken and sauce can be frozen for future wraps. Allow to cool fully, transfer to freezer safe container for up to 3 months.

Make it a meal prep recipe by storing the pre cut veggies (and lettuce), teriyaki chicken, and rice in 3 separate containers. Reheat the chicken and rice in the microwave and then assemble the wraps.

Teriyaki chicken can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days max.
