Everyone has a favorite teriyaki recipe. If you’re still searching for yours, this one is quick and simple!
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing, any variety (even low fat!)
1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks or strips
1-1/3 cups water
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking rice (uncooked)
In a large, non-stick skillet, heat Italian dressing over medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until cooked through (the length of time will depend on how small you cut your chicken chunks!)
Add water, teriyaki sauce and garlic powder to chicken. Stir, then heat until boiling. Add broccoli florets and rice. Cover and cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, five more minutes. Fluff and serve!
- I will up the broccoli to three cups next time, I thought it needed more.
- If you’re out of teriyaki sauce you can make a reasonable substitute by combining soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, garlic powder and onion powder. It won’t be exactly the same, but you’ll be able to concoct something tasty!
- I used a combination of white and brown rice, just because that’s what I had on hand. Either will work.
