Teriyaki Meatball Bowl Recipe | LaaLoosh (2024)

I’m going to cut right to the chase here…this Teriyaki Meatball Bowl was amazing! My kids loved it, as did my husband and me.

I used ground chicken for the meatballs, but ground pork or turkey would work well too. Baking the meatballs also made for an easier, more hands-off cooking process, and that homemade Teriyaki sauce is beyond delicious — hitting all the right flavor notes, sweet, tangy, and salty. SO GOOD!

If you want to kick up the heat a bit, feel free to add in some red pepper flakes. I normally use brown rice anytime I make rice, but my son has been begging for white rice, so I decided to treat him.

The brown rice would definitely add some more fiber, so that’s what I’d recommend if you are trying to eat healthily.

Definitely add these Teriyaki Meatball Bowls to your menu this week…you won’t be sorry!

Total TimeTotal Time 45 minutes mins


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 cup rice - uncooked
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 5 cloves garlic - minced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 inch piece fresh ginger - grated
  • 2 green onions - diced
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and mist with nonfat cooking spray.

  • Prepare rice according to package directions and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, combine ground chicken 1 tbsp soy sauce, egg, Panko, 2 cloves garlic, 1 inch of ginger, and black pepper.

  • Roll the meatball mixture into small balls, about one tablespoon each. This should make about 30 meatballs. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet, and bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

  • While the meatballs are cooking, prepare the teriyaki sauce. In a medium-sized saucepan, add the 1/2 cup soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, honey, and remaining garlic and ginger. Whisk over low heat until all ingredients are combined and the honey is dissolved in just a few minutes.

  • Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tbsp water, and pour into the sauce. Turn the heat up to medium-high, stir, and cook until thickened. It should thicken as soon as it begins to simmer.

  • Add the cooked meatballs to the sauce, and stir to coat evenly. Divide rice into 6 different bowls, and top each bowl with 5 meatballs. Garnish with green onion.

      I’d love to know the nutritional facts for just the meatballs (no rice).

      We really liked this, but agreed it was pretty salty. I used no sodium, no sugar rice vinegar, and I wonder if I should have used seasoned. I also used lower sodium soy sauce from Target, but maybe there’s one out there that has even less sodium. I did about 1.5T of honey (I don’t like really sweet teriyaki sauce) but I doubt that missing 1/2T is the reason it tasted so salty. Still plan to make again, but hope to somehow tweak — any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

      I made this for dinner and it was so yummy! I didn’t have any fresh ginger so I substituted a sprinkling of the canned stuff. I love your website and have gotten so many delicious recipes from LaaLoosh that my family eats regularly! Thank you!
