This is a great stir fry recipe for the beginner. A friend's husband makes it for his family of six on a regular basis. His directions are straight forward and simple. Sure to give you great results. Prepping ahead won't take you long and the actually cooking can be complete in under 20 minutes. It's a real hit with the kids. When not making my own teriyaki sauce, my favorite bottled sauce is made by Annie's Organics. The recipe called to stir fry with sesame oil but I choose to fry with other oils with higher smoke points. You can add some sesame oil at the end for flavor.
- 3 chicken breasts, sliced very thin (easiest done while slightly frozen)
- 1⁄4 cup minced garlic
- 1 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1 bunch broccoli, cut into florettes
- 3 medium carrots, thin sliced on bias
- 1 red onion, cut bite size
- snow peas
- 1 -2 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 dash crushed red pepper flakes
- sesame oil, to taste (added at the end)
- toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
- cooked rice, to serve over
- At least two hours before dinner, combine sliced chicken, garlic, and teriyaki sauce in a bowl.
- Stir, cover, and refrigerate until dinner time.
- Heat wok, or wok-style pan, to high heat; add oil.
- Add chicken and stir until cooked, then add veggies.
- Continue to stir and cook until veggies are firm, then add crushed red pepper flakes to taste and garnish with sesame seeds.
- Serve immediately over rice.
- Note: If you find that your sauce was too liquid the first time you prepare this, try adding a teaspoon of cornstarch to the teriyaki chicken mixture before stir frying next time.
Flavorful and easy to make stir-fry. I followed the recipe exact and added mushrooms and red bell peppers. We liked this, it was a little salty - probably the prepared teriyaki sauce I used. Next time I will use my own homemade teriyaki sauce. Otherwise this was very nice! I did add sesame oil for flavoring.
This is a really nice & simple stir-fry easily put together with things I usually have on hand. The vegies I used were carrots, broccoli, cauli, beans, capsicum, onion & mushrooms. I left out the chilli as I was preparing for a toddler too. Served with some hokkien noodles this was a lovely dinner. Thanks for posting!
My family loved this! I even shared with the neighbor and he loved it as well. Personally, I would add a bit of a sauce as it was a little dry for me and of course as I always do, I added some hot pepper sauce to it (Szechuan sauce). The only thing I would absolutely do is add some minced fresh ginger. It was great and a real family pleaser (even the 10 year old gobbled it up).
