Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

Thanks to hurricane Irma with our power out for  four days it was necessary to cook off as much of our frozen food that was going to go bad so this recipe was a quick throw together that actually came out not too bad!

You can make this recipe quick and easy or marinade the chicken for a little while either way it will come out great.  One  Chicken breast cut into ½” cubes will easily serve two persons and a bag of stir fry vegetables could serve up to 4, so just do the math with how many people you are serving.

While I tend not to endorse products, occasionally I find great stuff that out does most others, for teriyaki baste and glaze Iron Chef or Kikkomans are both excellent products and for the stir fry any one of the Birdseye frozen packets that suit your taste will work just fine.

Ingredients for Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

  1.  1 chicken breast cut into  ½” cubes per 2 persons
  2. 1or more bottles teriyaki baste and glaze
  3. 1 package frozen stir fry vegetables per 2 persons
  4. 3 Tbs soy sauce
  5.  2 Tbs Sesame Oil (optional)
  6. Cooked rice
Directions for Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

Marinate the chicken in some of the teriyaki baste for about an hour, then using a wok or  stir fry pan or a large sauté pan, cook the chicken until almost done and lightly browning.

In another pot cook the rice.

To the chicken add the vegetables and cook for about five minutes covered or as directed on the package. Once the vegetable are cooked and hot add the rest of the teriyaki baste the soy sauce and sesame oil stir together bringing everything up to heat and serve over the rice.

In a large stock pot cook the sausage on medium heat until they begin to lightly brown.  Remove them one at a time and cut into coin slices and return to pan to continue to cook.

Once the sausage is nicely browned add the onions and potatoes and cook until the onions begin to brown and soften.

Just before serving mix the softened butter and flour into a roux, bring the pot up to a boil add the roux and stir until the stock thickens.

The Best Grilled Tuna Salad Sandwich

A life-time ago I worked for a great restaurant company, that sadly is no longer in business.  This was one of my favorite lunchtime items.  I did modify the recipe slightly to suit my tastes but as with all good recipes it’s just a spring-board for your creative juices to start flowing.

The 12 oz can of tuna will make enough for about 4 sandwiches.  The  bread, butter and cheeses are per sandwich.

Ingredients for Grilled Tuna Salad Sandwich
  1. 12oz can white albacore tuna (drained).
  2. ½  large onion finely diced
  3. 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  4. 1 tsp pepper
  5. ¼ cup (appox) mayonnaise
  6. 2 slices of Bread
  7. 2 slices of sharp cheddar 
  8. 2 Tbs softened butter
  9. 2 Tbs grated parmesan cheese
Directions for Grilled Tuna Salad Sandwich

In a large bowl place the tuna, onion, Dijon, pepper and mayonnaise and mix completely, breaking up the tuna to small pieces.  Do not add enough mayonnaise to make the mixture very loose, add in just enough to bind everything.

On one side of the two slices of bread, butter them fully and then sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top of the butter and spread it out to completely cover the slice, pressing it into the butter to adhere.

turn one slice of the bread over place a slice of the cheddar on the bread, the spoon out the tuna salad, top with the other slice of cheddar and place the other piece of bread with the parmesan side out on top of the sandwich.

Put into a medium hot large sauté pan or on a grill and cook until bread is lightly toasted on both sides and the cheddar is melting. 

With a sharp serrated knife slice in half and serve.

Since I didn’t come equipped with opposable thumbs, this one is a little messy for me to eat, but still it was worth the effort so 5 paws
