Teriyaki is a method of cooking some kind of meat or fish in soy sauce, sugar and traditionally, mirin. Mirin isn’t always commonly found in every grocery store here, so I made tonights teriyaki chicken without it. And, ya know what, it tasted great! I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was because it was so easy. And many times, those two things don’t go hand-in-hand.
But, it was and I’m really pleased! All I did was sear the chicken, and saute the chicken in the sauce and it was done! It was seriously that easy! We already had some rice and sugar snap peas on hand so a quick dish of it all up and dinner was ready!
I hope you enjoy this quick weeknight dinner recipe!
3-Ingredient Teriyaki Chicken
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- In a large pan, sear both sides the chicken until half way cooked through.
- Then, add in the soy sauce and brown sugar until it begins to boil. Keep stirring until the sauce reduces and the chicken is coated evenly.
- Stir in the sugar snap peas to coat with remaining sauce, and serve immediately with rice (if desired). Enjoy!
