Easy Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

Easy Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

 

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.

Chicken Francaise

 

 

 

 

Chicken Francaise

The other night while looking to make something different that we haven’t put up on the blog yet, I found that I had a lot of lemons left from a night of Chicken Piccata.  This works out well as Chicken Francaise is both new to the blog and used up a bunch of lemons!

Most of the recipes that I researched use a whole chicken breast.  I found that to get them to cook fully took quite a long time.  I prefer to butterfly the breasts and pound them thin before using, as this shortens the time necessary to cook. 

Ingredients for Chicken Francaise
  1. 1 chicken breast per person
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 2 Tbs Water or Milk
  4. Juice of 2 lemons separated
  5. 1-2 lemons thinly sliced
  6. 1 cup all purpose flour
  7. 2 tsp garlic salt
  8. 2 tsp pepper
  9. 2-3 Tbs butter
  10. 1 Tbs neutral oil
  11. 1 shallot finely diced
  12. 1½ cups chicken stock
  13. ½ cup white wine
  14. 1 Tbs corn starch diluted in 1 Tbs water
  15. salt & pepper to taste
Directions for Chicken Francaise

In a shallow bowl combine the eggs,2 Tbs of water and juice of one lemon and whisk until fully combined.

In a second shallow bowl place the flour, garlic salt and 2 tsp of pepper and stir until combined.

Place the butter and oil in a large sauté pan and bring up to medium high heat.  Dip the chicken breasts into the egg wash then completely cover with the seasoned flour and place into the sauté pan and cook until lightly browned .

Once cooked place on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Into the sauté pan place the shallot and cook for a minute or two.  Add the wine and bringing the heat up to high cook until the wine is almost completely evaporated.

Now add the stock and the juice of the other lemon and deglaze the pan and then lower the heat to medium.  Place the chicken back into the sauce and allow to simmer for about 8-10 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked.

Plate the chicken and taking the pan off the heat add the cornstarch and stir to slightly thicken the sauce, taste, adjust seasoning if necessary, and spoon the sauce over the chicken.

Place a few thin slices of lemon on top as garnish and serve.
