- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup bean sprouts
- In a skillet, cook chicken in oil with chili/garlic paste over medium heat until chicken is cooked through (6-7 minutes on each side).

This recipe did not work for me as written. The lemon flavor overwhelmed the other flavors and the sauce was far too runny. Maybe less lemon, and the basting-type teriyaki (I used traditional, which is also runny). I did like the touch of cooking the chicken with the chili garlic sauce - it added just the right amount of that flavor.
