    This looks really easy and delicious! I would opt for the fresh stuff, however:)

  • Catarina Alexon

    Looks good, Susan. But considering that the Chinese don’t like the Japanese I doubt Chinese Chicken Teriyaki was invented in China:-)

    • Hi Catarina
      Thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate your feedback. From what my husband tells me, who was over there when active military, yes, Teriyaki is Japanese but other Asian countries also cook it their own way. I do get your point though. 😉

    I make stir fries like this fairly often, but I tend to use fresh over frozen. Stuff like this is great in the summer when you can pull the veggies directly from your garden.

    I also enjoy a Korean soy sauce I pick up at a local Asian market. The flavor is a bit smokier and sweeter than the typical Japanese soy sauce. Little known tidbit for most American cooks: soy sauces vary in flavor and use based on different regions.

    • Hi Jon
      I’m going to have to ask my husband about the soy sauce (in Asia during military career). He was in Korea for 8 years. 😉

  • I make a beef stir fry once a week with fresh veggies, but occasionally mix things up by using shrimp or chicken. I don’t use rice anymore since it’s one more way to cut out carbs. The best part is the rice vinegar, chili paste, and hot mustard concoction I make to dip it in.

    • Hi Jeri
      Yes, there are some carbs. Often I get real lazy and don’t make the rice even when I have the wild rice in the pantry. I’m not a great fan of hot stuff but my husband is. He’s probably love to eat at your house. 😀

    My husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes as well. We manage his with diet and exercise, at least so far so good. Because he is the cook in our household he has changed our diet according to his needs and our health. Interestingly enough the changes really have not had a noticeable impact. Meals like yours taste great and work well with the diet restrictions.

    • Hi Cheryl
      Eating with the diabetic diet isn’t hard at all in my opinion. Like your husband, his health is good. In fact, because he’s stuck to the diet, after 4 years now, he can eat more of some of the “good” carbs.

  • While we all like to use fresh vegetables and chicken, this is a handy recipe to have when you don’t have time to shop — or are too lazy to shop. You can keep them in your freezer until you need them. Nice and simple! Right up my alley.

    • Hi Jeanette
      We definitely think alike. My mother-in-law even goes so far as to buy the fresh vegetables, prepare them for cooking and then, store them in the freezer. Because of limited mobility in my upper limbs (well one anyway), I go right to the frozen food section though. 😉

    The chicken teriyaki looks great.

    • Hi Jason
      Believe me, it’s easy too. It’s one of those meals that you can serve to friends who drop by without making it a big hassle. 😀

  • Great recipe – I’m going to be trying this with my microgreens – yummy.

    • Hi Lenie
      If you do try it, please give me your feedback on how it tastes to you.

      Thanks for visiting and giving me feedback. I appreciate it. 🙂

    I used to make the beef version of this years ago, but I’m curious to try the chicken now. I’ve pinned it for future reference.

    • Hi Debra
      I should try making it with beef. All I’d have to do is buy the precut beef for stew. The chicken with the teriyaki sauce is good, believe me, Debra. 😉

  • Nice recipe. Guess, I can use other meats too

    • Oh yes, you can most definitely use other meats or something like shrimp. 🙂

    it sounds like a simple tasty recipe. since you are cooking for a diabetic i shared it on the fb page for my gastric surgeon’s support group. they may recommend halving it so people don’t cook too much and tempt themselves with portions larger than they should have. but it sounded good to me. take care, max

    • I know exactly what you mean about heaping it on to the plate not realizing how much is there. I can’t believe how many people don’t realize that they can use their biggest serving spoon in their silverware drawer as a guide as to what a serving size is.

      I’m overweight, but I can assure you that it isn’t my diet. With me it’s the lack of exercise because of the disability. If you have any suggestions for how I can lose weight, I’ll try whatever I’m capable of.

  • maxwell ivey

    Hi Glynis; You are so right about portion size. one of the most difficult things for my mom and brother was to break with routine and cook less to start with. with exercise its all about finding something you can tolerate. remember the amount of time isn’t as important as your consistency with it. I ride a stationary bike or as i call it the bike that doesn’t go anywhere. I ride it 15 to 30 minutes each day. its very low impact and i usually listen to a book on tape while doing it. my doctor wants me to try light hand weights. this wasn’t working at all due to arthritis in my right shoulder. my doctor then had an unusual suggestion. she said that if i didn’t suffer any problems from taking tylonol or alive that i should take some OTC pain meds about a half hour before exercising. this worked to avoid the pain in my right shoulder but i still don’t care for the weights. stretching can be good. start with five minutes a day of any activity. even one minute can be helpful as you can say hey i did something today i didn’t do yesterday. I have a blogging friend who once wrote a post about starting with one pull up a day. he met that goal. i am at my ideal weight and having no trouble staying there but i would like to reshape what’s left. its hard to get too excited because so many people are telling me how good i look. hope i helped, max

  • This recipe is so simple and I like that it is quick as well. I would probably try and find a recipe to prepare homemade teriyaki sauce to control the sugar source and how much is used.

    • Christina,
      I had to go check the teriyaki bottle because I don’t know about the sugar. Sure, I was aware that most sauces have sugar but I didn’t realize how much teriyaki had. Do you have a recipe for the teriyaki sause? If so, would you share it with me?

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    This looks so easy that I may have to give it a try sometime. It would make a great weekday meal for the kids 🙂

    • If your kids like Asian food, they should like this. You won’t have to worry about them not getting their veggies. 😉

  • Adrienne

    Hi Glynis,

    Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. Boy that sure does look good. I’m not much of a cook these days, not a lot of fun cooking for one. Now I have my Mom next door to me but I’m not big on leftovers either because she won’t allow anything to go to waste.

    I’m actually fixing to start a plan next Monday so I’m going to have to hold off on trying anything new anyway but I really do need to cook more because it’s just so much more healthy then the frozen type dinners. That’s normally what I eat these days. Just quick.

    Thanks again for this share.


    • Hi Adrienne

      Cooking for two isn’t a whole lot easier but I can understand where you’re coming from cooking for one.

      Whatever your plan is, I wish you success. 🙂

  • Glad you enjoyed it Gwen. Have fun making it and enjoy. 🙂
