Chicken Teriyaki

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!

Full Recipe

Chicken Teriyaki

Ingredients:

  • 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

Rice

  • 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

Teriyaki Mixture

  • 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.

Add half the bag of broccoli.  Cover and cook for a minute.

Add rice and then the teriyaki mixture.  Mix well.

Let simmer for five minutes with no lid.

Serve and enjoy!

Chicken Teriyaki

This is my recipe.  I just got in the kitchen one day and began working and tasting and came up with this.  This is something that we love at our house!  It is fairly quick and has plenty of flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Fresh Chicken Breasts
  • 1 tsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 c. Rice (Quick Cook, I prefer Brown)
  • 1 ½ c. Vegetable Broth
  • Frozen Broccoli (I use Green Giant Steamers, half the bag)
  • 1 Red Onion, quartered and pulled apart
  • Mushrooms, roughly chopped (about a cup)
  • 1 c. Teriyaki Sauce
  • ½ c. Honey
  • Crushed Red Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder for honey
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Powder for rice
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Pepper
  • Sesame Seeds, 1 tsp.

Teriyaki mixture:
Mix teriyaki sauce, honey, 1 tbsp. garlic powder & red pepper flakes to taste.  Whisk together and taste to see if anything needs to be adjusted.  Sit this aside.

Rice:
Add rice, ½ tsp. garlic powder and vegetable broth to a sauce pan and prepare according to rice directions.

Chicken:
Cube chicken breasts.  Add olive oil to pan turn to medium heat.  Add chicken and salt and pepper the chicken to taste.  Brown chicken.

Veggies:
Before chicken is done add the onion so that it can be caramelizing but not burning.  Then add mushrooms and broccoli.  Cover and let it cook for a couple of minutes.  Make sure not to burn anything by stirring occasionally.

Add rice to the chicken and veggies along with teriyaki mixture.  Stir well and cover another couple of minutes.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Serve it up!
