Ten Dollar Meal: Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry
Ten Dollar Meal: Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 3-4
  • 1 lb chicken
  • 5 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil or neutral oil such as vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 broccoli crown
  • 1 yellow or white onion
  • sesame seeds (optional)
  • kosher salt
  • Cooked white rice for serving
  1. Slice the chicken into thin slices, crosswise, and place in a bowl. Add 2 tbsp of the teriyaki sauce and 1 tbsp of the soy sauce and stir to coat. Set aside. Cut the zucchini into 3 inch long strips. Slice the onion into thin slices. Cut the broccoli into one inch florets. Set aside.
  2. In a large deep skillet or wok, add 1 tbsp of the sesame oil over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken and juices and spread out evenly across the pan in one layer. Sprinkle salt over all the chicken lightly. After 2-3 minutes, flip the chicken over and salt the other side, cooking for another 3 minutes or until all the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. Remove the chicken from the pan and reserve on a plate with the juices.
  3. Mix together the remaining 3 tbsp teriyaki sauce and the brown sugar in a small bowl. To the same pan the chicken was cooked in, add another tablespoon of sesame oil over high heat. Add the onion, stirring frequently until the onion becomes translucent--about four minutes. Add the zucchini and add the teriyaki brown sugar mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, until the zucchini begins to brown and soften. Add the broccoli and the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Sprinkle with salt to season. Cook, stirring, until the broccoli is bright green and just starting to soften.
  4. Add the reserved chicken and stir. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with cooked white rice and a little extra teriyaki sauce on the side if needed.
