Cut chicken breasts or thighs into 1” cubes. Create marinate by combining soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, ground ginger, minced garlic and maple syrup. Add half of marinate to chicken and reserve half for adding as a sauce to bowls. Allow chicken to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or overnight.

While chicken is marinating, cook rice according to package directions, chop vegetables and prepare spicy mayo by combining mayonnaise, siracha, lemon juice, sour cream and honey. Refrigerate spicy mayo until ready to serve.

Add marinated chicken into frying pan on medium heat and stir fry until chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165F (74C). Set aside.

Create bowls:

Place desired amount of cooked rice on the bottom of your bowl, next add in lettuce and cabbage, and other desired vegetable toppings, cooked chicken, top with cashew nuts and sesame seeds, drizzle with spicy mayo and reserved teriyaki sauce.
