Recipe of the Month: Chicken Teriyaki w/ Fried Rice & Stir Fry Vegetables
Posted Aug 04 2009 6:22pm
One request I have received many times from this blog is for recipes!
There are so many things that are not usually "safe" but can be made "safe" and even yummier at home. I have so many things that I make like this that the "Recipe of the Month" will be a regular monthly tradition here for the next several months.
This month and next I will be focusing on Chinese food. I love Chinese food but there are peanuts, cashews, and many other nuts in Asian dishes. Cross contamination seems nearly inevitable. So, we never eat this type of food out any more. This was a little hard for me to give up.
But, really, I don't have to!
One of our favorite dishes is Chicken Teriyaki with Fried Rice & Stir Fry Vegetables. Its not hard at all and its pretty healthy. One great bonus of this is that it can easily be both milk and egg free. We ate it monthly when we dealt with those allergies.
Here's What You Need:
Chicken cut into bite size pieces (I use 3-4 chicken breasts but any type will do) 1/2 bottle of KC Masterpiece Honey Teriyaki sauce or the ingredeints for this marinade recipe. 2-3 bags of boil in bag rice (I use Wal-Mart's brand) 2-3 TB of soy sauce 1-2 eggs (omit if you deal with an egg allergy) 1 bag of stir fry vegetables 2 TB extra virgin olive oil
For the chicken: Marinate chicken for a few hours (or overnight). Then drain marinade off and cook chicken on medium heat in a medium size pot for 5 to 7 minutes.
For the rice: Cook rice in pot of boiling water for recommneded time. Chill for 3-4 hours (to prevent clumps). Once chillled, warm 1 TB of olive oil over medium heat. Then add the chilled rice. Stir in 1-2 TB of soy sauce as rice warms. Once warmed, beat eggs in a separate bowl. Once beaten, move rice over to side and pour eggs into pan. Allow eggs to set. Looks like this:
Once the eggs are set, stir eggs and rice together.
For the stir fry vegetables: In a separate pan , heat 1 TB of olive oil. Once warm, add the stir fry veggies. Add 1 TB of soy sauce. Cook until veggies are tender.
There you have it! Chinese food that is super good and safe for anyone with a nut allergy!!
