Luscious over-easy eggs, salty bacon, creamy avocado and a rice fried rice come together in this Yakitori Chicken Breakfast Bowl recipe.
Breakfast is such an important meal. But though I’ve told my kids that over and over again, only recently did I really begin to believe it was true for myself.
That’s not to say I haven’t eaten breakfast in the past — I have. But teaching five mornings a week has given me new appreciation for the things that help me be really be on the ball for my classes. So now I make a greater effort to have a good breakfast every single day.
I recently partnered with Ling Ling for a series of blog posts about their frozen entrees. As you may remember, I fell in love with Ling Ling Bibimbap Beef Fried Rice over the summer, since it’s an easy, accessible version of a dish I have loved for eons. In my last post, I created a Garlic Ginger Broiled Shrimp recipe to pair it with.
As I started mulling my second post in this series, I decided to go with a different variety of the rice: Yakitori Chicken. And then I had an epiphany: Why not have it for breakfast?
Ling Ling Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice is a combination of long grain rice, vegetables and flame-grilled chicken with a rich sauce. It’s the perfect base for this breakfast bowl that also features sliced avocado, bacon and an egg cooked over easy.
Runny yolks? My favorite!
The lucscious, velvety egg yolk combines with the salty bacon, creamy avocado and rich rice for a delightfully satisfying breakfast that is so easy to create. With layers of flavor, this breakfast bowl is perfect for kickstarting a busy day.
Are you familiar with the new Ling Ling Fried Rice line? Five unique Asian inspired dishes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand are available — and they are so easy to heat and enjoy. In addition to the Yakitori Chicken, there’s Bibimbap Beef, Yakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken and Chinese-Style Vegetable. There’s also a line of noodle dishes and dumplings, based on Asian-inspired dishes from the region. For noodles, there’s Chicken Yakisoba and Drunken Noodles with Chicken and the dumpling varieties are Chicken Dumplings in Chili Sauce and Pork Dumplings in Chili Sauce.
There’s one more post in this series coming. What Ling Ling product do you think I should try?
Also — if you want to dig into this bowl yourself, you can find Ling Ling products at many Walmart stores in the frozen foods aisles. Also, to sweeten the deal, there’s a $2 off coupon for a box of Ling Ling Fried Rice, Noodles or Dumplings at any retailer where the products are sold available now. (You can find it at this link.)
