Chicken teriyaki with broccoli

Total Time

In this easy Japanese favorite stove-top meal, the chicken teriyaki stir-fry is paired with a side of broccoli for a burst of color and steamed rice to capture the sauce. We cook each component separately and then combine just before serving to keep the total cook time around 30 minutes. To steam broccoli, place florets in a microwave-safe dish, add about 1/2 inch of water and cover dish. Microwave on high until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Or to steam in a saucepan, set broccoli in a steamer basket or colander over simmering water, cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
