Teriyaki Chicken Toss With Spaghettini Pasta

"This is bar none the best stir fry I have ever tasted! All the credit goes to Sandy Richard and her cookbook Life's on Fire Cooking for the Rushed. I have strayed slightly from the original recipe but all for the sake of taste. The one thing that I'm a bit of a stickler on is that you use the V-H brand of honey-garlic sauce. If you're in an area that doesn't carry it use your choice of the next best brand."

    This was awesome! I was a bit skeptical about honey-garlic sauce and spaghetti but it was really delicious! I didn't have zucchini so I left it out, and I used cumin instead of curry (1 heaping tsp) because I prefer it but otherwise made it as written. I used flax spaghetti too. My 2 year old asked me "Mommy like it?" and when I said yes she beamed and said "Me I like it too! Me too!" and continued to shovel it into her mouth as fast as she could lol My DH hasn't tried it yet but there are plenty of leftovers for him and for my lunch tomorrow.

    I love, love, love this recipe. I used to have the cookbook but my overzealous toddler happily destroyed it and I haven't purchased another yet. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. It is so very simple to make and so delicious, I actually make a double recipe and then I have some left over to take in my lunch the next couple of days as well, it travel's and store's well.

    This is a great dish! I have made this dish before from Sandy's cookbook and when I was going to add it to 'Zaar it was already there. We made it again tonight and loved it. This is definitely one to try.


Hi Everyone! Well what can I tell you about myself...I’m HOUSEMANAGER (a name given to me by my family) a 43 year old Christian gal married to a wonderful man with a beautiful 8 year old competitive gymnast daughter who looks like a princess. I’m absolutely passionate about food. My love of cooking / baking and all things food is only rivaled by my love for interior design and my in-depth interest in forensic science (what a combination). This explains my "OFF BEAT" humor! It wasn't always that way, I used to make a joke that my first marriage ended in divorce because of my then disdain for the kitchen... WOW HAVE I CHANGED! I’m really an artist at heart, everything I’ve ever been involved in or am doing currently revolves around the creative within me. For over 15 years I was in business for myself (The Salon Industry) where I met my now present husband. We currently own and operate our own Consulting / Marketing / Advertising firm, catering primarily to real estate agents and their properties. Yes, I have a techy background that spills into our business which is unique in that we handle all the details from start to finish. Business interests take us deep into the internet...a story on it's own! I collect chefs (yea,you read right), cookbooks and dishes. The dishes / table settings are in every color and style imaginable. I love to set theme tables that emphasizes the food (that’s the artist in me). I have an insatiable interest in cooking techniques and ingredients, especially the exotic. Our home is blessed with an array of cats, a dog, hamsters, exotic birds and tropical fish. There’s a whole lot of God, love and laughter being served along with the food here! I adore this site and I tip my hat to all the staff and ‘zaar contributors. There is a lot of “stuff” out there but this is a 5 star site, you should all be exceedingly glad in the direction the site is going! Your endless hard work is appreciated.
