I came up with this recipe a few years ago. I decided to try to make it after I found it on the menu at O’Charley’s and fell in love with it! A couple of years ago I noticed it wasn’t on their menu anymore which made me appreciate my little recipe even more!
Go ahead and get the rice started.
Cube your chicken
Get your veggies sliced.
Now onto your teriyaki mixture. Add the honey and spices to a bowl.
Add the teriyaki to that and stir until well mixed. Go ahead and do a taste test. It should be sweet, have a little heat but still be able to taste the teriyaki.Add some olive oil to a pan. Put it on slightly above medium heat.
Now it’s time to add your chicken and their spices.
When the chicken is done on one side stir and then add your onions and green peppers. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
By now the rice should be done and ready to remove from the heat.
Add the mushrooms. Cover and cook for 1 minute.
Put in half of the bag of frozen broccoli. Cover and cook for 1 minute.
Add the cooked rice.
And then the teriyaki mixture and stir combining it all.
Let it simmer for a few minutes then it’s ready to eat!
- 2 Chicken Breasts, boneless & skinless, cubed
- 1 Red Onion, halved and then sliced thin
- 1 Green Pepper, sliced into thin strips
- 4 Mushrooms, cut into thin strips
- 1/2 bag of frozen broccoli florets
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 Boxes of Uncle Ben’s Chicken & Rice (Do not use the seasoning packets)
- 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 c. vegetable broth
- 1 c. water
- 1/2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 c. honey
- 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes (less if you can’t handle spice, more if you like it spicy!)
- 3/4 c. teriyaki
Start with your rice. Pour both boxes of rice (throw out the seasoning packets) into a medium sauce pan. Add the vegetable broth, water and butter. Cook according to instructions on the box.
Add olive oil to a pan on slightly higher than medium heat. Add chicken, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
In a bowl, combine honey, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and teriyaki. Stir until well mixed. Do a taste test to make sure nothing is overpowering anything else. It should be sweet, with a little heat but you should still be able to taste the teriyaki.
Go back to the chicken. It should be done on one side. Flip it over and add the onion and bell pepper. Cover an ook for 3 minutes.
Add the mushrooms. Cover and cook for a minute.
