Nutty Drunken Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

This Asian-inspired dish goes well over rice or noodles. I recommend Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce, which is not as salty as some other brands.

I agree it is good, but I did need to tweak it for my lower sodium desires and it was still great without any Teriyaki sauce and only 1 tbs soy. Also there is sodium in celery salt, black bean garlic sauce, mustard, chili-garlic sauce, so I did not find a need for additional salt laden sauces. To sum it up, I will save this recipe as a go to Asian flavored dish. One last thing, I added a package of frozen (I heated before adding) stir fry veggies to bump up the veggie volume. Thanks for posting.
