Easy Chicken Teriyaki
If you are into Japanese food, then this is a great tasting
and easy to make recipe that your family will enjoy. It serves a family of
four. I have had this recipe for years. The serving sizes are a little small
for my family. It is usually doubled. You can be the judge.
Often I will substitute the celery for green or red peppers
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 pound boned chicken breasts and thighs
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups diagonally sliced celery
16 ounces frozen stir-fry vegetables, thawed, drained
Blend soy sauce, vinegar, garlic powder, sugar and ginger in a large bowl. Cut chicken into thin strips about 2 inches long. Place in bowl. Toss chicken until coasted with marinade. Marinate in for 10 minutes in refrigerator.
Drain chicken and discard marinade. Heat vegetable oil in a
wok or large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Stir-fry chicken for 7
minutes or until cooked through and lightly browned. Add celery and vegetables.
Stir-fry for 3 minutes. Serve immediately with cooked rice or Chinese noodles.
Frozen vegetables can be replaced with any fresh vegetables. For example, green peppers, baby corn, and carrots. Often I will substitute the frozen vegetables and add the Teriyaki Zucchini and Onion recipe below. Many times the zucchini and onion recipe are the main course.
Teriyaki Zucchini and Onion
2 medium zucchini (cucumber size) cut into strips
1 small onion sliced and separated into rings
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
In a large skillet, sauté zucchini and onion in butter for 7-8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Stir in the teriyaki sauce and pepper. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

What Qualifies Me As a Cook
I love to cook. I have been cooking since I was young. I am one of those cooks who often create
her own recipe without even writing it down. This irritates people who would
like a copy of one of my homemade recipes. Then I have to think the steps
through. This is what I did when I wrote about my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
on Squidoo. I gave away my secret ingredient. You can look me up there under
sandyspider. My soup recipe was published in a recipe book, along with
some other special cooks on Squidoo.
If you get a chance to try any recipe that I write about, let me know what you think about it. Bon Appetite.

Do you burn up or begin hiccuping while eating jalapeno peppers? Then you may very well be allergic to these. The best way is to avoid the peppers altogether.
