Blogathon Day 23: Favorite recipe? Feel free to include step-by-step guide with photos!

One of my favorite recipes is a chicken teriyaki stir fry that my mom has been making since I was a kid. It’s something that I make for myself at least once a month, if not more. So here’s how to do it.

You Will Need

  • 1lb of chicken breast (I prefer boneless and skinless, doesn’t have to be exactly a pound. I also sometimes use tenderloins)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (I prefer low sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bag or head of broccoli
  • 1/2 cup karo dark corn syrup
  • Handful of baby carrots and any other optional veggies (diced onion, peppers, etc).
  • Salt & pepper

First in a medium sized bowl whisk together 1 cup water and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Then add in 1/2 cup of soy sauce and 1/2 cup of the corn syrup and whisk again. I also sometimes add a few drops of honey to it, but it’s not necessary. Set aside.

This is what the sauce should look like when mixed together.

Before starting the chicken I like to start the rice first since it can take about 15-30 minutes depending on the brand you use. The kind I like is jasmine rice, but you can cook whatever rice you like.

Cook the rice according to the directions on the package, for me personally I use a rice cooker.
