My super simple teriyaki chicken stir fry is such an amazing combination of my tender wok-fried pieces of chicken, lots of veggies, and my homemade teriyaki! Serve this nutritious and delicious dish over rice or teriyaki noodles and you’ll have an incredible weeknight dinner!
In a wok, large skillet, or non-stick frying pan heat the cooking oil over medium heat until the oil begins to shimmer. Add the vegetables (zucchini or broccoli, onion, sugar snap peas or snow peas, bell peppers, and carrots) and stir-fry until the veggies are tender-crisp.
1 tablespoon cooking oil, 2 cups zucchini, 1 small yellow onion, 1 cup sugar snap peas, 1 cup bell pepper, ½ cup carrots
Remove the vegetables to a plate then return your wok or skillet to medium-high heat with the added sesame oil. Season and stir fry the cubed chicken pieces until lightly golden and cooked through.
2 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 lb chicken thighs, ½ teaspoon each, salt & pepper
Add the teriyaki sauce and cook with the chicken to heat through. Then return the stir-fried vegetables to your wok or skillet and stir fry to coat and warm thoroughly.
½ cup teriyaki sauce
Remove from heat and serve immediately. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Mix and match the vegetables to your liking, making 4-5 cups of fresh chopped veggies total.
