Simple Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry
The absolute best dishes to prepare are stir fries. They’re so quick and easy, full of healthy, fresh and crispy vegetables and beautiful sauces; it’s usually a guarantee whoever you’re cooking for will love the outcome — no matter what the flavours.
Whenever we order out, this is our numero uno preference. The lady at the Japanese restaurant knows it’s me ringing as soon as I call. We have developed a pretty cool relationship now. Really. You know it’s special when you go from ‘ma’am’ to first names.

I think it’s safe to say I’m ‘in.’ familycuisine.net. I used to make this particular Teriyaki dish allllllll the tiiiiiyme. And it’s about time I brought it to you guys. Now, I know it’s pretty standard to cook up a teriyaki stir fry, as the recipes are usually all the same.
But, it’s not in my nature to follow anything. I don’t know why…it’s kinda like a blogger condition I’ve developed over time.
And this one didn’t escape my clutches.
Because to this teriyaki, I add a hint of garlic to add just the perfect amount of flavour to it, with a little more sweet mirin and a tiny amount of water to make the teriyaki sauce into a beautiful thick syrup that envelopes the chicken and gives it an amazing texture and an irresistible sweet flavour.
I don’t use any cornstarch/flour in this recipe simply because by simmering the chicken in the brown sugar, it naturally thickens the sauce into an almost soy sauce caramel syrup.
Another tip: stir frying your vegetables before cooking your chicken. There’s nothing worse than soggy vegetables in a stir fry lacking in colour and crunch. And I finally learnt that lesson a few years ago. Enjoy with your stir fried veg for a lower in carb option, or over some steamed white or brown rice.
