“Takeout” Style Teriyaki Chicken and Broccoli

Sometimes I have cravings for Chinese takeout but being a Celiac and having many food allergies, Chinese really isn’t an option. This is my version of Teriyaki Chicken and Broccoli. I paired it with white rice but using brown rice is just as good.

 

What You Need:

1 Chicken Breast, cut into cubes (sprinkled with pepper)

Sesame Oil

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1/4 cup Braggs Liquid Aminos

1/8 cup Water

2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar

2 Garlic Cloves, chopped

1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger, chopped

1/2-1 tablespoon Cornstarch

2 Heads of Broccoli, chopped

Rice

What To Do:

In a bowl, prep your sauce. Mix together brown sugar, Liquid Aminos, water, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger and cornstarch.

Cook the rice according to the directions. While the rice is cooking, in a sauté pan, drizzle a light coating of sesame oil. Be careful! This oil is powerful! Add in chicken pieces and cook.

In a separate pan, drizzle a little bit of sesame oil and add in broccoli. Mix around occasionally and when the broccoli starts to get soft, take it off of the heat. Add the broccoli to the chicken. Pour in the sauce and let the flavors incorporate.

The sauce will start to thicken up. Once the sauce is your desired consistency, pair it with the rice and enjoy!
