Looking for a quick dinner? When the grandkids are here, I sure am! This was perfect, and the girls loved it. They built their own bowls and tucked right in.
Do you know how easy it is to make your own teriyaki sauce? This recipe is so quick and simple to do you will want to keep a jar of it in the fridge all the time.
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 4 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 – 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Allow to boil gently just until sauce has thickened. Thin with a bit of water if necessary to have it sauce like, and not jelly like!
Cook rice according to instructions.
Cut about 1 pound of chicken breast into bite size pieces, and marinate with a few tablespoons of the teriyaki sauce, while you prep the rest:
Slice a variety of vegetables, whatever you like!
Prep some toppings:
- rough chop on cilantro
- slivered green onions
- toast sesame seeds
Okay, now things come together quickly!
In a hot wok or skillet, heat a neutral oil and quickly fry the chicken just until cooked through. Set aside.
Wipe out wok/skillet and heat a bit more oil. Stir fry vegetables until just crisp tender.
Set everything out and allow everybody to build their own bowls. Remember to set out your teriyaki sauce to drizzle over.
