Teriyaki Chicken

Recently I’ve been really getting into cooking a lot more. I’ve always been one to enjoy baking and making deserts, but savoury dishes have never been my forte. After doing slimming world earlier in the year and just generally trying to live a healthier lifestyle I gained a somewhat substantial amount of recipes….. many of which have now become favourites.

One I particularly love is this Teriyaki Chicken recipe I discovered hidden in a Slimming World Magazine a couple of months back. Now, I’m no longer partaking in that particular diet, however the dish is still perfect for everyday life. Being so quick and easy to make it’s a great one for after work, and can so simply be made for one person or a group.

What surprised me so much about this recipe was that it did actually taste like teriyaki! Normally when you try to recreate oriental or Indian style dishes, they just don’t taste the same… but this one was delicious!

To be honest, you can follow this as closely or as loosely as you wish... it's super easy to alter the quantities of different ingredients to make it exactly how you like... and for as many people as you like.

Ingredients (serving two):
1cm piece of root ginger (grated)
1tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
3tbsp Soy Sauce
1tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
200g Chicken Breast (thinly sliced)
100g Mange Tout
Broccoli (as much as you wish)
Rice of some form


1. Pop the ginger, soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce and worcestershire sauce in a bowl and add the sliced chicken to marinade for 5-10 minutes (or longer if prepped in advanced)

2. Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray (I use Fry Light) and place on a high heat. Add the chicken/marinade and stir-fry until cooked.

3. Cook the broccoli and mange tout as desired (I use a steamer)

4. Cook the rice (also as desired......I'm super lazy and use packet rice)

5. Once cooked, divide between bowls/plates

It's really that simple. To give it more oomph you can add tabasco sauce along with spring onions, palk choi and red pepper! 

So next time you’re stuck with what to make for tea (or dinner if you aren’t from the Midlands/North), then why not give this a try?
