My 10 year old daughter was craving Chicken Teriyaki, so I told her what to do and she made supper for our family.
I don’t know about you, but I am a big advocate of meals that are ready in thirty minutes or less. Though I love cooking, with busy weeknights, after school activities, and everything else, we need supper on the table and it can’t be labour intensive.
This Chicken Teriyaki recipe is so easy that my 10 year old daughter can make it all by herself. From prep to finish, it takes thirty minutes. She used our rice cooker to steam some rice while she prepared the sauce/marinade.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- ⅓ cup orange juice (we used the juice of 1 orange)
- 2 tablespoons honey (we used local Manitoulin raw honey)
- 1½ tablespoons sesame oil
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1½ teaspoons freshly grated ginger
- vegetable oil to cook the chicken
- spring onion/scallions, sliced thinly
- sesame seeds, toasted
- In a bowl, add freshly squeezed orange juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, and freshly grated ginger. Mix well.
- Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Add chicken to marinade. ** For best results, you can let marinate for 30 minutes if you wish.
- In a pan on medium heat, add cooking oil and cook chicken (without the marinade). When chicken is cooked, add the sauce/marinade and cook for 5 more minutes.
- Serve over a bed of steamed rice and garnish with thinly sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
Teach them how to cook when they are young, my friends. That way, kids will know how to cook and be competent in the kitchen when they get older. They will gain much needed life skills, AND mama doesn’t have to cook every single night of the week!
