Simply Healthy Family: Easy Chicken Teryaki


Easy Chicken Teryaki

This is a simple, healthy version of Chicken Teryaki. My kids love it! It has far less sugar than bottled Teryaki sauce and no perservatives/additives. I always have *Tamari and honey on hand, making for a quick, last minute super. I cook my chicken in my pressure cooker (which I couldn't live without!) I can throw in frozen solid chicken tenderloins and they cook in 3 minutes and all of the moisture is locked in. The chicken falls apart and is very moist and flavorful. If your not lucky enough to have a pressure cooker, first, put it on your next birthday wish list, and for now bake, boil, poach or grill your chicken, do not fry your chicken!
* Tamari, unlike regular soy sauce, does not have any additives/perservatives in it. Use the low sodium Tamari.


6-8 boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
2 cups snow peas
2 cups chopped bok choy
1/2 cup low sodium *Tamari soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon grated ginger

2 cups cooked basmati rice

  1. way to go, Gwen.
    luv ya,

  2. this looks yummy, I'm going to try to find all the ingredients so I can make it. Do they have Tamari at the reg. grocery store?

  3. They do here, right next to Soy sauce. You can use Low Sodium soy sauce if not. Tamari is naturally brewed and contains no additives and I think it tastes much better, more flavor less salty.

  4. hey G, if you can, you should include prep time and overall cook time w/ your recipes. that'd be swell.

  5. i love tamari and basmati rice!! this looks yum. another one to try. thanks gwen.

  6. good idea. Done. I thought I did, but that was on my recipe Zaar site, they do it for you. ;-)
