Teriyaki Glazed Chicken

I love to experiment with food. We're able to buy sweet onions grown on Maui, so I stir-fry them with chicken and carrots for a tasty teriyaki meal. —Kelly Brenneman, Riverdale, California

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 4 medium carrots, julienned
  • 1 medium sweet onion, julienned
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • Hot cooked rice
  • Sesame seeds, toasted, optional
  • Sliced green onions, optional

Directions

  • In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken in 2 tablespoons oil until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, stir-fry carrots in remaining oil for 2 minutes. Add onion; stir-fry until vegetables are tender, 2-4 minutes longer.
  • Combine soy sauce and brown sugar; add to skillet. Bring to a boil. Return chicken to skillet. Boil until sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve with rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
Health tip: A simple swap to reduced-sodium soy sauce will decrease sodium to about 1,200 milligrams per serving, but that’s still high. To cut even more, replace some of the soy sauce with water or reduced-sodium broth.
