Sprout Cooking School teaches us how to make a quick and healthy chicken poke bowl.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 3 tablespoons salt-reduced soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely grated
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon corn flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup edamame, defrosted
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, halved lengthways, thinly sliced
  • 4 radish, thinly sliced
  • 2 spring onion, thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 avocado, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Boil quinoa for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Mix together soy sauce, mirin, honey, sesame oil and ginger in a small bowl.
  3. Dust chicken with corn flour. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes each side or until golden brown and just cooked through.
  4. Pour over soy sauce mixture and cook for a further minute or until slightly thickened and reduced. Remove chicken from the pan and thickly slice.
  5. Combine edamame, cucumber, radish, spring onion and lime juice in a large bowl. Toss to coat.
  6. Divide quinoa, salad and avocado between serving bowls. Arrange chicken on top and garnish with sesame seeds.

Cooking Tip: Dusting the chicken with cornflour helps achieve a golden brown and crispy outside, as well as thickens the soy glaze.

Nutrition Tip:
Edamame are green, immature soybeans. They are a great source of high-quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids your body needs.
