Quick & Easy Teriyaki Stirfry

At the end of the week, I usually end up with a lot of odds and ends in the vegetable drawer. One of my go-to recipes when there is not really enough of anything for a full meal, and most of it will be replaced in the next shopping trip, is stir fry.


It is quick and cooks in one pan for easy clean up!
A trick to making this into dinner in less than 30-minutes, is to have cooked rice already on hand. Whenever I cook rice with dinner, I make double and throw half into the fridge for another meal. I do the same thing with a couple of chicken breasts as well.


The best thing about this recipe is how flexible it is. You can add almost any veggie or meat to it and it will still be incredible!
Printable Recipe

Ingredients
1 Tbsp oil (I use olive or coconut)
2 cups chopped veggies of your choice (I used carrots, celery, onion, zucchini, broccoli, & kale)
2 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
Cooked chicken, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 cups of cooked rice (Brown or white)


Directions
Chop all your veggies into bite sized pieces

















Heat a wok or large skillet over medium heat and add oil to the pan.



















Add the firm veggies to the pan, and saute for 5 minutes carrots, celery, onion)
Add the more delicate veggies, and saute for a few minutes (broccoli, zucchini)
Add in the cooked chicken and heat through (3-5 minutes)
Add in any leafy veggies and the teriyaki sauce
Mix thoroughly and saute just until leafy veggies wilt or soften





















Remove from heat and serve over rice!

I garnished with green onion and hemp seeds.


















For teriyaki sauce, I use a recipe I found on from 100 Days of Real Food.

Teriyaki Sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp honey
Combine all in a small pot over high heat. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. When I make this I will make a double batch and freeze the second half. Then I add it straight out of the freezer to the stir fry at the same time I add the meat.  

All three boys ate this right up, and Preston called it "really wummy!" That's success in my book!
