As much as I don’t want to consider myself picky (can we call me particular instead?), the truth is, I demand a lot from my dinners, especially the ones I cook on weeknights. My ideal dinner needs to be healthy, reasonably easy to make, minimize dishes, AND taste indisputably delicious. Too much to ask? I don’t think so, and neither does this healthy Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry!
A lightened-up version of the Japanese teriyaki chicken stir fry that was my high school takeout love—and let’s be honest, my post-high-school takeout love, because who doesn’t love juicy chicken and vegetables bathed in sweet and sticky teriyaki sauce?—this one-pan dinner is one of those magical meals that manages to:
- Please every member of your household, even the picky ones.
- Include every food group.
- Be quick and easy to make.
- Use ingredients you already have in your pantry.
- Taste fab leftover. (If you have leftovers anyway!)
In fact, I believe so strongly in the universal appeal of teriyaki chicken that I’ve come up with multiple cooking methods for it.
And now today, we complete Team Teriyaki Chicken with this simple, sublime ginger Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry. It cooks on your stovetop in minutes, no extra appliances required. (more…)
