20 Minute Teriyaki Chicken

Recipe for Chicken TeriyakiI’m so excited to share my new favorite dinner recipe with you…Tender chicken and peppers cooked in sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce!

The teriyaki sauce is quite simple to mix together and simmer while the chicken and peppers cook, and I’ve used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Also rather than the sugar (or cornsyrup – yuk!) in many teriyaki sauces, I’ve used some raw honey.

It’s wholesome, delicious, and the kiddos can’t get enough of it 🙂 Enjoy!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a saucepan, combine the chicken broth coconut aminos, honey, mirin, and sake. Boil and then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Pound and season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet place 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, turn once to brown both sides. Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer to a plate. Slice the chicken crosswise into strips.
  4. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 1 Tablespoon olive oil. Add the bell peppers and cook until crisp-tender and lightly charred – about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken and the sauce to the skillet and cook over low heat for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce has thickened. Serve warm over cauliflower rice. Enjoy!

      Hi Mary,

      Coconut Aminos are similar to soy sauce but just healthier and Mirin is a type of rice wine similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol content and higher sugar content. Sake is an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin that is made from fermented rice. Sake you should be able to purchase at most local stores. Coconut Aminos and Mirin can be purchased at a local health food store and if they are not in your healthy food store you can purchase them on amazon and below are the links:

      I hope that this is helpful and Happy Cooking!

    Hi. I checked out buying coconut amino on Amazon but it is the US site. I am in the UK. Is it possible to get coconut amino in the UK? Ordered from the States the postage and packing is extremely expensive. I do use Tamari instead of soy sauce as it is organic and gluten free.

      Hi Chris,
      I’m sorry to hear that coconut aminos are hard to come by for you in UK. I do not know specifically where you could get them from there, however Tamari is a perfectly fine substitute to use instead
