Chicken Poke Bowl Ingredients

This chicken poke bowl recipe is inspired by the recipe on Chicken.ca where I go often to get recipe inspiration when I want to cook up some chicken. I tweaked it to accommodate some flavours that my family and I love and we were not disappointed. I loved how their recipe incorporated pears into the marinade for the chicken, I don’t think I would have thought of that but oh my so yummy.

I like using chicken thighs because not only are they so tender but they are an economical cut so if you’re wanting to try alternative cuts or need to be more budget conscious chicken thighs are a great option.

What do you put in a chicken poke bowl?

One of the many reasons we’ve become enamored with the poke bowl is its versatility. We put rice in the bottom of ours and then topped with our veggies of matchstick carrots, cucumbers, steamed edamame, arugula, spinach and of course the marinated cooked chicken thighs. We then topped it with sriracha mayo for some spiciness and sesame seeds.

You can use whatever vegetables you like, micro greens you bet, lettuce, sure. I have seen poke bowls with avocado and a wide range of veggies so go with what you like. You can have with or without rice or have with quinoa and the list goes on. Remember I said I love the versatility of poke bowls and this is one of the reasons why.

Can I make my poke bowl spicier?

You bet you can. You can add more sriracha mayo or if you really want to kick it up several spicy notches then you can toss in chopped chili peppers or jalapeños and you get the idea.

Use quality chicken

If you’ve been following Powered by Mom for a while then you’ve seen me say this before, I only buy chicken with the Raised by a Canadian farmer logo like the one below. I know when I buy chicken with that logo that it’s top quality, no hormones, ethical treatment of the chickens and the majority of the farms are small family-owned farms.

We believe in high ethical standards for raising the chickens and this logo means they have stringent care standards. We know we are getting quality chicken and the majority of these Canadian farms are family owned. My hubby are both self employed so supporting local and family owned businesses is important to us.

Heat oil in large non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat; cook chicken, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or until cooked through and caramelized. Let cool slightly.

  1. thighs was always my favorite cut of chicken u can do so much with them and they fill u up fast too great on grill even

  2. I love all parts of the chicken. I like to buy whole and cut up and save the backbone for soup. I use different part for difference recipes.

  3. Ground chicken can be turned into so many things. Chicken burgers, meatballs, added to pasta sauce, added to meatloaf for a unique flavor.

  4. I really like chicken thighs; a better and more chicken tasting option for meals. I also really like using chicken liver in specific grilling recipes (the liver is very heavily marinated and spiced taking away that “liver” taste).

  5. My favourite alternate chicken cut is the thigh! It’s quick, easy and always a delicious. I love making one-pan honey garlic chicken with chicken thighs.

  6. My favourite alternate chicken cut are the wings. Mmmmmm BBQ glazed Chicken wings topped with Apple Salsa and Toasted Nut Crumble

  7. Yay for chicken legs. Spices and bbq sauce on the bbq. Husband is the pro and also does a perfect jobs. Salad with carb vegetables in it on the side.

  8. My favourite cut of chicken is thighs with leg attached Cook them in the oven first to get most of the fat out and then finish them on the bbq!!

  9. I sometimes use boneless chicken thighs in lieu of boneless breasts. Usually the family does not notice the difference if the meat is cubed or diced.

  10. We use chicken legs. We use a barbecue chicken powder on both sides and put them in a grill pan in the winter and oven bake them. We use a metal bowl on top to stop spatter and they still brown well. We use the outdoor grill when weather allows.

  11. My favourite alternate chicken cut is the thigh. Love dark meat and it is versatile in many dishes from barbecue to stir-fry.
