Directions for Rice and Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry

  1. Set burner to medium- medium-high. Bring 1 tablespoon margarine or butter and 2 cups water or chicken broth to a boil. Measure 1 cup white or brown rice and add to boiling water or broth. Turn burner down to simmer and cover with lid. Cook rice for 15 to 20 minutes and set aside. In a second pan, par-boil baby carrots until soft; set aside.
  2. Thaw chicken breast's in microwave. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Cut chicken into chunks or slices; set aside.
  3. Put olive or vegetable oil into wok and set on medium-high. Add chicken and Teriyaki sauce (to taste) and cook until juices run clear; set aside.
  4. Chop onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, celery, cabbage, carrots (unless your using baby carrots), broccoli and cauliflower (unless your using packaged florets).
  5. Prepare packet of stir fry seasoning mix according to directions. Usually you mix the powder with water and stir. If using stir fry sauce, follow directions as to amount. I add 1/4 cup of each sauce I choose.
  6. Turn stove burner to medium-high. Pour sauce mix into stir fry pan and begin adding vegetables. Start with crisp vegetables first such as cabbage, followed by broccoli and cauliflower. End with softer vegetables such as mushrooms, Onions & Snap Peas. Don't forget to add can of bamboo shoots and baby corn.
  7. Add your prepared chicken and carrots to pan. Cook all ingredients for approximately 30 minutes (or until vegetables and chicken are soft and hot). Stir ingredients throughout cooking process for best results.
  8. Serve chicken stir fry with side of rice or noodles.
  9. Season chicken stir fry and rice with soy sauce.
  10. Note: You can add chicken broth to your sauce mixture to enhance flavor.

Chicken Stir Fry with Vegetables

All good cooks have learned through experience that measurement and ingredients should be flexible. This recipe is my favorite stir fry but isn't necessarily everyone's. Give yourself the freedom to pick and choose the ingredients and sauces that work for you. Think about your favorite vegetables, sauces, and side dish; then start cooking your personal version of stir fry.

Hi Linda, Nice to see your hubs again. Chicken stir fry is a great dish and good for most diets. Our family doctor now wants me and my husband to cut way back on our carbs. Except for the peas, this recipe is a great low carb dinner and filling. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Blessings to you.

I'm a stir-fry lover. I'm also a vegan so I'd skip the chicken and go for tofu.

Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Hi Rachel-isn't it a bummer that scrumptious carbs are not the best for our health. I often make this stir fry without any carbs and that's the beauty of stir fry. You choose the vegetables and sauces that are best for you. Good luck on cutting down on the carbs. Blessings right back to you :)
