One of my favorite things to do is cook up some good food to make people happy with. The more the merrier, I love to feed everyone. I have plenty of recipes I’ve used over the years, but it never fails when dinner time rolls around- I draw blanks. I constantly feel like I make the same thing over and over, so I scour Pinterest for the best recipes only to realize I need to pick up 7+ items for the dish I picked and quite frankly, half the time I’m too lazy to even want to go. So this evening I’m looking through my fridge and find tons of squash I picked up and cooked up some of this
Diced and sautéed chicken in orange/teriyaki sauce, sautéed yellow squash, zucchini, and shredded carrots, served with steamed white rice. Yep, I use paper plates a lot to downsize the amount of dishes I have to do daily. I read somewhere that some think it’s tacky to use paper plates but let’s be real, I guess I’d rather be tacky than have a back ache from doing a load of dishes that never seems to get a dent in it.
Anyway, if this simple dinner sounds like something you’d enjoy, I have posted the recipe for your use below! Let me know if you try it, and what the verdict is.
Simple Orange/Teriyaki Chicken With Sautéed Veggies And White Rice
For the chicken-
- 1 1/2 lbs chicken breast, diced
- 1/2 cup orange sauce of your choice
- 1/2 teriyaki sauce of your choice
- 2 cups white rice, steamed and fluffed
- 1 lb of mixed yellow squash and zucchini, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 4 tablespoons your choice of oil (I use grapeseed or olive)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all of the veggies with the garlic and sauté in 2 tablespoons of oil until firm-soft, stirring occasionally. Season the cubed chicken breast with the onion powder, salt, and pepper. Saute the chicken in 2 tablespoons of oil until half cooked, then add soy sauce, orange sauce, teriyaki sauce, and sesame oil and cook until cooked through and the sauce thickens onto the chicken. Serve with/over white rice.
