Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowl incorporates udon noodles with chicken and broccoli, all covered in a homemade teriyaki sauce.Jump to Recipe
When we lived in Orlando, we would go to a restaurant called Bentos and I would always get a Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowl. It was so good…. udon noodles, chicken, and broccoli with teriyaki sauce. It seemed like such a simple meal, but I never made it for myself.
Part of the problem was finding the udon noodles. I had been looking for a long time, both in Florida and Texas, and finally found some udon noodles at our local HEB! So, I bought them, in the hopes of making a copycat recipe, and got really close on my first try!
I used the recipe for homemade teriyaki sauce from my 100 Days of Real Food book, and just decided to wing it from there. As I said, the ingredients seem easy, so I just started cooking to see what we ended up with.
Well, it’s not exactly Bentos because I’m sure they have some secret ingredient in their sauce. But it satisfied that craving for me. And good enough to have at home since we aren’t anywhere near a Bentos anymore!
Step by Step
In a small mixing bowl, use a wire whisk to combine the soy sauce, cilantro, ginger, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and garlic to make your teriyaki sauce.
In a medium saucepan, sauté the broccoli over medium-high heat in one tbsp of olive oil for about 5-7 minutes, until it starts to brown.
Remove the broccoli from the pan. Add the remaining tbsp of olive oil and sauté the chicken until it is cooked through.
Return the broccoli to the pan and pour the teriyaki sauce over the chicken and broccoli.
Gently add the udon noodles until they are covered with the sauce. Stir until the noodles are soft.

That looks delicious! I’ve never tried udon noodles, but I bet they’ve got a nice ‘bite’ to them as long as they’re not overcooked.
I love the texture of udon noodles. Since they are thick, you can really taste them in a dish like this.
Ooh, this looks delicious… we eat a lot of chicken in our house so I’m always looking for interesting, new recipes!
We eat a lot of chicken, too, since everyone will eat it. And there are so many ways to cook it!
We really need some new recipes and this one sounds so good! Would love to try it!
I know how that feels. We were stuck in a rut for a while before I started just trying all kinds of things for the blog.
Teriyaki, broccoli and udon noodles sounds so delicious right now! I really love asian food so this is right up my alley.
Sounds like this is a perfect recipe for you then!
I love Teriyaki Chicken. This is one of my favorite recipe. Now I should try this version of Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowl. Sounds yummy!
Teriyaki chicken has such a great flavor, especially when mixed with the noodles and broccoli.
I love bowls like this though I am not a fan of the noodle. My husband is and I usually buy a pack for him on occasion. So awesome you got so close on your first try.
You could do this over rice, too. I’ve done something similar to that before and it was good. I prefer noodles, but rice works in most of these types of dishes.
This looks so good. I know what I cooking for dinner tomorrow night. Thank you!
Awesome, I’m happy to have inspired such a great meal. I hope you and your family enjoy it!
I love teryaki chicken! Especially with broccoli! I am obssessed with steamed broccoli and when you pair it with chicken it is a meal fit for a queen!…. or tired mom!
Haha, or a tired mom… that’s me, too! The broccoli is more roasted than steamed in this, but it’s still delicious.
I really need to try this. I can never seem to get the Teriyaki just right when I have tried before. Practice makes perfect!
Practice definitely makes perfect. I find myself still tweaking recipes even after making them dozens of times.
I love the flavour of Teriyaki, so will give this a whirl. I will try with chicken for my partner and tofu for me xx
Teriyaki is so yummy. I would love to know how it is on the tofu because I’ve never had that before.
Looks very healthy. Chicken and broccoli is a great combination. I love how it tastes. Will try this recipe too.
I think the only “unhealthy” part would be the sodium because of the teriyaki sauce. But if you go for the low-sodium options on the soy sauce and other ingredients you could probably bring that down a bit.
You did a wonderful job of creating your own dish from a popular recipe. The photos are equally inviting
Thanks, Elizabeth! We have a lot of fun trying to make copycat recipes and see how close we can get to the original.
Yum!! I recently tried udon noodles and was happy to find they are super easy to cook and very delicious. I like making copycat recipes of my favorite restaurant foods too.
Udon noodles are so good! I love how easy they are, too. Even easier than most pasta since you don’t even have to boil water for them!
This looks so good! I can imagine how it must have smelt while cooking. YUM!
I think that’s one of my favorite parts of cooking…. the house always smells so good!
Your noodles look so delicious! It looks perfect for lunch at work!
It warms up really well, so it would be great for taking to lunch.
ooh. yummy. I love noodle bowls. Making homemade Chinese food is one of my favorite things to cook!
Have you tried one with udon noodles yet? They are my favorite for something like this.
ahhh this looks so delicious!!! I love chicken teriyaki and have it almost weekly, so good!! Will try your recipe.
Oh man, I would totally eat teriyaki chicken weekly if I didn’t think my family would complain about the lack of variety!
Looks delicious! That is great you have managed to make a similar dish now that you can’t enjoy it at a restaurant. I must try it sometime, I will add udon noddles to my shopping list!
Yes, when we moved out of Florida and away from so many beloved restaurants, we had to figure out ways to make those dishes at home.
This recipe looks so delicious! I think my whole family is going to love this!
We really enjoy this meal, so I hope your family does, too!
Never heard of Udon Noodles, looks and sounds delicious. will try to make them this weekend. Thanks for the recipe.
The first time I had udon noodles was when we went to the restaurant that was the inspiration for this meal. They are delicious and one of my favorite types of noodles now.
This looks so yummy! When we went to China, I bought a beautiful set of chopsticks and love to use them whenever I can. This is the perfect recipe for that!
Oh that sounds awesome! We have been eating more Asian-inspired dishes lately so I want to invest in a good set of chopsticks soon.
This is perfect! We’ve been trying to find a good noodle bowl idea!
It’s such a yummy meal! I hope you guys enjoy it, too.
I love getting inspired to try new dishes here. I really want to try this as this simple and easy to make!
Thanks! It’s such an easy dish to make but packed with flavor.
This looks delicious! Noodle dishes were my favourite to make at university, as I could squeeze so many veggies in, and there was always so much flavour! This one looks like a great recipe to try!
I wish I know how to cook like this when I was in college! I love meals that I can add veggies into like this so I can trick myself into eating them!
