Rumbi Rice Bowl Knock Off

I love Rumbi Island Grill.  We just got one in Logan.......actually last year, but I think it's dang tasty.  My kids think it's dang tasty and I figured it can't be that bad for you.  The other day I was checking for some recipes and came upon a segment on Studio 5 where the Rumbi man made a Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowl.  Delish!  I love their salads too, and I especially like their Bahama Mama Tortilla Soup.  It's  a lot like my favorite Thai soup Sump Tom.  Coconut milk in a thin broth with lots of good things.  So back to the rice bowl.  I love the brown rice with tons of veggies.  Who cares what the meat is.  I just wish there were 10x's the amount of veggies included.  So Mr. Rumbi showed how to make the bowl.  It couldn't be simpler, and it actually tasted just the way it does at the restaurant.  So if you love these rice bowls too, fix one up tonight.  Their not hard at all, and your family will think you are amazing!

Rumbi Island Grill Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowl

Brown rice cooked according to directions.  (This is the part that will take the longest.  Brown rice cooks approx. 40 min compared to regular rice.  If you want Rumbi Rice just cook white rice with 1 can of unsweetened coconut milk, some sugar, and chicken broth in place of water.  Add black beans and Wa-laa!)

1/2 chicken bosom for each person
carrot shreds (I buy the pre-shredded kind)
broccoli heads

In a large saute pan pour a little drizzle of Olive Oil and the secret ingredient is a tablespoon or two of Sesame Oil.  That's it.  Dump all your veggies in and add a little salt and pepper and of course I added a little sugar and stir fry until veggies are a bit tender.  Not mushy, but still firm.  I marinated my chicken for a few hours in some Yoshida's Teriyaki Sauce and then grilled them.  Cool slightly and then cut into strips.  We served the rice bowls buffet style and the kids took as much as they wanted.  We had 7 people that night and 4 chicken breasts was plenty.  There was leftover chicken.  Everyone can drizzle a little more Yoshida's sauce over their rice to their liking.  It was lovely!


  1. Sounds delicious!I have to laugh at your chicken "bosoms". One day (with a car full of kids) we pulled up to the drive-through at PopEye's chicken on base in Germany and my husband ordered chicken bosoms. There was dead silence on the other end for almost a minute and then a "What?" So funny!

  2. I always eat there when I am in Utah, I love it!
