I was getting pretty tired of eating pasta this week and decided to change things up. Thanks to a little old lady in Dierbergs, I decided to make some Teriyaki! I thought just putting sauce on some chicken seemed a little boring, so I changed it up and it turned out amazing! I know because Judah devoured his whole plate and he’s a huge critic of any new dishes. I hope you enjoy this Easy Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe too!
It took me about five minutes to decide on a Teriyaki sauce. There were over a dozen different bottles, but you can’t ever go wrong with Kikkoman.
What you need:
- 2 Chicken Breasts cut cross wise 1/2in thick
- 1 1/2 Cups of Original Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
- 3 Tbsp of Honey
- 1/4 Cup of Water
- 1 Tbsp of Vegetable or Canola Oil
- 1 Cup of Sweet Snap Peas
- 1/2 Orange Pepper
- 1/2 Red Pepper
- 1/2 Cup of Green Onion
In a small bowl, add your chicken pieces and 1/2 cup of Teriyaki Sauce. Mix together well and let marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes.
While it is marinating, prep your vegetables. Slice your orange and red peppers, dice your green onions to make 1/2 cup and rinse off your sweet snap peas.
In another small bowl, add the other cup of Teriyaki Sauce, water and honey. Mix well and set to the side.
Add your oil to your Wok or skillet and place on Med-High heat. Once this is heated, add your marinated chicken and cook for 5 minutes.
Add in your onion, peppers and peas and cook for another 5 minutes. Now add in the rest of the Teriyaki sauce you mixed with honey and water.
Once it is mixed well and simmering, cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the peas are tender. This will take roughly 10 minutes.
You should start cooking your rice when you begin, or halfway through cooking your chicken if you want it to finish roughly at the same time. I paired the stir-fry with delicious Jasmine Rice, my favorite!
This delightful recipe makes 5 servings, so adjust to accommodate your family size! It is not spicy at all, so if you want to add spice consider adding a little Cayenne Pepper to the chicken marinade.
