Winner, winner.

1. One-Pot Teriyaki Chicken & Vegetables

Here's the recipe:

One-Pot Teriyaki Chicken and Rice, by Tasty

Servings: 4


1 tablespoon olive oil

2 chicken breasts, sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon ginger

2 cups + 1/4 cup water

1 cup white rice, rinsed

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1/4 cup honey

2-3 tablespoons Sriracha

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup broccoli

1 cup carrots

1/2 red bell pepper

Scallions for garnish (optional)


Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium heat, then add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and sauté for 8 minutes. Add garlic and ginger, sauté for 2 minutes until fragrant, then add 2 cups of water and the rice, and stir. Cover the pot and bring water to a boil.

Uncover, stir, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Then add soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and Sriracha. Stir to combine.

Combine 1/4 cup of water with the cornstarch to create a cornstarch slurry. Add the cornstarch slurry to the pot and stir, cooking until the sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes. Garnish with scallions (optional) and serve immediately. Enjoy!
