Quick and Easy Chicken Poke Bowl

This chicken poke bowl is a great alternative when sushi-grade fish isn't in the budget. I love it because it's quick, easy and inexpensive. While it's not a traditional poke recipe, the chicken still rocks in this bowl. —Emily Cresta, Oxford, Ohio

    The toppings on this are delicious! We loved the combination of vegetables, pickled onions, and spicy mayonnaise along with the chicken and rice.

    We really enjoyed this! I left out the cucumbers because I'm the only one here who likes them, and I couldn't find any bean sprouts at the local grocery. Since I didn't have time to sprout my own we did without those as well! I used basmati rice, since that's what I had at home already, and I used just plain sesame oil and sweet onion for the same reason. Even despite all of that this was delicious! A nice, light dinner and even my husband (who won't even try sushi or poke and doesn't care for stir fries) said we should have this one again!

    I've never had a poke bowl before, so I didn't have any particular expectations. I just knew that I liked most of the ingredients and wanted to try them together. I followed the recipe for the most part except I used brown rice. Also, I did not have any sesame oil or seeds, so I just use regular olive oil. This meal was delicious and easy. Most of the prep can be done early and then it can be assembled when you're ready to eat. It would also make a pretty nice pack and go lunch.
