Nutty Drunken Chicken

"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.

    This is really good! The only change I made was to add some zuchinni and it was fantastic. The chicken came out perfectly tender and not dry at all. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for posting!

    The consensus of three 13 year-old girls: "This was really, really, really good". However, it was way too salty for the adults. That, in mind, I still gave it 5 stars because it's extremely tasty. I served it over cellophane noodles. Thanks for sharing!

    The sodium is extremely high in this. So I did use low sodium soy sauce and cut the teriyaki to 2 tablespoons. I removed the oil from the pan after browning the chicken no need for extra fat. After the hour of cooking the chicken was fall apart tender. But there was so much sauce and a thin film of fat so I strain 1- 1 1/2 cups of the sauce which was way to salty for us and placed the veggies back in the pan (they were very dark and full of the seasoning) added 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Served over brown rice. My DH remarked it was nutty! With a little adjusting this can be 5 stars. Sorry but I almost had to toss it, if not for replacing the high sodium sauce. Good luck with the contest!

    Liked the flavor and usually have all the ingredients on hand. I would add a full package of mushrooms next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe
