Notes and Tips

Here are some tips and tricks to prepare a perfect chicken poke bowl:

Use fresh ingredients: It is essential to use fresh and good quality ingredients to achieve a delicious poke bowl. Make sure to buy fresh, high-quality chicken meat, and choose vegetables that are at their peak.

Marinade time: It is important to marinate the chicken meat with enough time for it to acquire all the flavors of the marinade. Although 15 minutes is mentioned in the recipe, if you have time, I recommend marinating it for at least an hour, or even overnight for an even more intense flavor.

Cook the chicken correctly: Make sure to cook the chicken correctly and at an appropriate temperature (165.2°F) to avoid food health problems.

Customize the recipe: Don't be afraid to customize the recipe according to your personal tastes. You can add or remove ingredients, or change the marinade according to your preferences.

Serve it in order: when assembling the pokebowl it is important to put the rice first at the bottom, then the cooked protein, and finally the vegetables and toppings. In this way, the presentation of the dish is better exploited and the rice stays fresh.

Trick to cook the perfect rice: for a perfect rice, it is recommended to wash the rice before cooking it, this will help to remove the starch and achieve a looser rice.

With these tips and tricks, you'll be preparing a perfect chicken poke bowl in no time. Enjoy it a lot, Foodies!
