INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR STIR FRY:

  • Signature Farms® Chicken (I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but you could use chicken thighs or even ground chicken or turkey!)
  • Red bell pepper
  • Signature Farms® Broccoli
  • Signature Farms® Carrots
  • Signature Farms® Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Garlic (fresh is always best!)
  • Green onions
  • Signature Farms® Cashews
  • Sesame seeds

As you can see, this teriyaki chicken stir fry is loaded with a variety of fresh, colorful veggies, crunchy nuts and juicy chicken all from Safeway‘s exclusive Signature Farms® line. Not only does Signature Farms offer a HUGE assortment of affordable fresh products, but all their delicious fruits and vegetables are even available in bags or pre-packaged containers for easy storage. Everything you need to clean your diet up and start eating healthy in the new year!

Any variety of veggies will work great in this recipe too. If you don’t have the ones I listed above, try adding asparagus, zucchini, squash, green beans, snap peas, cauliflower, other types of peppers and even leafy greens! The possibilities are endless.

HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI CHICKEN STIR FRY

This recipe couldn’t be any easier to make and it is truly one of our favorites! Why? Well this teriyaki sauce is just so dang good! You guys, quit buying store-bought sauces and make your own. It really is so simple and just tastes WAY better in my opinion (and better FOR you). This homemade teriyaki sauce is sticky, sweet and easily made in just minutes with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Here’s what you need for the sauce:

  • Soy sauce – I always use lower sodium soy sauce as I personally think regular soy sauce is just too salty for my taste, but feel free to use what you have on hand! You can also swap the soy sauce with coconut aminos to make this gluten-free.
  • Chicken broth – this adds even more flavor! If you like a sweeter sauce, try subbing the chicken broth with pineapple juice (you could even add chunks of juicy pineapple in with your stir fry!)
  • Honey – not only does this add some sweetness to the teriyaki sauce without using refined sugars, but it also makes a nice glaze! You could also swap the honey with maple syrup if making a vegan stir fry.
  • Rice wine vinegar – the acidity really helps to balance out the sweetness of the honey.
  • Sesame oil – this adds even more depth of flavor, but if you don’t have any on hand you can easily leave it out and this stir fry will still taste great!
  • Fresh ginger – I personally think fresh is always BEST, but if all you have is ground ginger, feel free to substitute 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger for 1 teaspoon fresh ginger. I highly recommend using fresh though if possible!
  • Cornstarch – this is to thicken up the teriyaki sauce.

Then to make your stir fry, the first step is to cook your chicken in a skillet with a little oil. Once your chicken is browned and cooked through, transfer it to a plate and then add all your veggies to the pan with a little more oil. Cook the veggies until nice and tender, then add the chicken back to the skillet and add in the fresh garlic. Mix that around for about a minute then add in your cashews and toss with the teriyaki sauce! You’ll want your sauce to start bubbling, then turn the heat down and simmer everything for a few minutes until sauce has thickened up and everything is nice and incorporated. And that’s it! I like to top this stir fry with sesame seeds and green onions, because HELLO, presentation!

HOW TO SERVE TERIYAKI CHICKEN STIR FRY

I personally think this stir fry tastes best served over white or brown rice, but you could also serve this with quinoa, noodles or even cauliflower rice to keep the meal lower in carbs.

Not only is this recipe great for an easy weeknight meal, but this stir fry is perfect for meal prep too! I’ll make the stir fry in the skillet while my brown rice easily cooks right in my Instant Pot and everything is ready to go at the same time. Then I just divide everything up into containers and we have some delicious lunches to enjoy that week.
