If you don’t have teriyaki sauce or don’t want to use store bought stuff, here’s and easy recipe. Use it as a marinade for chicken, shrimp, beef or tofu and you have a quick dinner.
- Ingredients (for 1):
- 1 lb. Chicken breast cut in thin strips
- 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. sugar
- ½ tsp. sesame oil
- 1 small garlic clove, minced (or microplane)
- Dime sized ginger root, minced (or microplane)
Serve with rice and salad
Combine sauce ingredients. Place in a bowl with your protein of choice. Let marinate 20-30 minutes. Then, cook in a nonstick skillet until cooked through and slightly caramelized. Discard excess sauce before cooking. (It’s best to use nonstick since the sugars can make it stick to a regular pan)
Sprinkle with sesame seeds at the end if desired.
