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!
