This quick and easy chicken teriyaki stir fry is healthy and delicious!

Once the chicken has marinaded, it takes just minutes to make so it’s fast and flavoursome! I’m delighted to add it to my stir fry repetoire

This has been on high rotation at our place because it’s so quick, easy and healthy too. 

I made this the day after we’d been to our local (and exceptionally good) Thai restaurant and David declared this as good as anything we’d had at the restaurant! High praise indeed!

The stir fry has quite a runny sauce and that’s the best bit. We love it drizzled over the chicken and the rice, seriously, it’s a whole lot of yum! 

Are you a fan of stir fries too? What’s the quickest meal in your recipe repetoire?
