Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry
Recipe Ingredients List
- Chicken Fillets (two)
- Small Red Pepper (half)
- Small Orange Pepper (half)
- Broccoli Florets (50g)
- Teriyaki Sauce (150g)
- Sesame Seeds
Add some sunflower / vegetable oil to a wok and let this heat up over a medium heat on the hob. Wash the peppers and broccoli florets and cut the peppers in half after drying them with a paper towel / kitchen roll. Cut the chicken fillets into small chunks and once the oil has heated up, add them to the wok. Make sure to add them slowly to avoid the oil spitting back at you and possibly burning you.
While making sure to stir the chicken every thirty seconds or so with a wooden spatula / spoon, chop up the peppers and broccoli florets into smaller chunks. Wait until the chicken has been cooking for ten minutes before adding the vegetables to the wok also. Continuously stir fry the ingredients together for three minutes – or until just before the vegetables start to char and go black.
Next, add the teriyaki sauce to the wok too and stir this through the ingredients for another two minutes. Turn off the heat on the hob and then spoon the ingredients onto a plate. Cut a couple of pieces of chicken open to ensure they are fully cooked and not pink inside. Sprinkle some sesame seeds over the chicken teriyaki stir-fry to add some texture and crunch and then serve and enjoy!
