How to make this recipe

Start by adding the chopped chicken thighs into a large/deep frying pan on a high heat with the oil. Give the pan a shake to ensure the chicken is coated in the oil and then refrain from touching so we can achieve a nice, golden brown char on the chicken.

After around 4 minutes, one side of the chicken should have achieved that golden glow. Remove from the pan and set the chicken aside. Slice the white onion

Add the onions with the mushroom to fry in the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper and fry for around 6 minutes, until the onion has softened and the mushrooms have released all their moisture.

Now add the grated ginger and garlic to the mushrooms and onions and leave to fry for a minute before pouring the stock into the pan. Add the carrot and frozen peppers and rice.

Return the part cooked chicken thighs into the pan to cook with vegetables. The frozen peppers will cool the pan down quite a bit, so wait until the stock starts to simmer, before setting the timer, according to the packet instructions for the rice. Mine was 12 minutes. The rice should have absorbed most of the stock.

Add the sauce to the pan and stir continuously on a medium heat, until the sauce starts to thicken. When the sauce has thickened in the pan with the rice, chicken and veggies, taste to see if it needs any more salt, then serve. Top with finely chopped spring onion and optional chilli flakes if you like things hot.

Try the Loaded Vegetable Chicken Teriyaki Rice Bowls. The delicious homemade teriyaki sauce is so easy to make together with the tender chicken and veggies.

Ingredients

  • 650 g boneless/skinless chicken thighs, chopped into bite-sized pieces (£3.85)
  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced (£0.50/3)=(£0.17)
  • 400 g mushrooms, chopped into quarters (£1.00)
  • 300 g (½ bag) sliced mixed frozen peppers (£0.87/2)=(£0.44)
  • 150 g (4 large carrots) thinly sliced/grated (£0.30)
  • 50 g fresh ginger, peeled & grated (£0.50)
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced (£0.69/3)=(£0.23)
  • 250 g long-grain white rice (£0.89)
  • Bunch of spring onions, thinly sliced (£0.40)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 600 ml chicken stock
  • 75 ml soy sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • Salt

Method

  • Start by adding the chopped chicken thighs into a large/ deep frying pan on a high heat with the oil. Give the pan a shake to ensure the chicken is coated in the oil and then refrain from touching. We want to get a nice, golden brown char on the chicken, which we won’t achieve if we continuously stir.
  • After around 4 minutes, one side of the chicken should have achieved that golden glow. Remove from the pan and set the chicken aside, don’t worry about it being fully cooked. Add the white onion and mushrooms to fry in the pan, now reducing the heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper and fry for around 6 minutes, until the onion has softened (can still have a little bite to it) and the mushrooms have released all their moisture.
  • To that, add the grated ginger and garlic to fry for a minute before pouring the stock into the pan. Return the chicken thighs into the pan, along with rinsed rice, carrot and frozen peppers.
  • Once the stock is brought up to a simmer (the frozen peppers cool the pan down quite a bit), set a timer according to the rice’s stated cook time. Mine was 12 minutes.
  • After this time, the rice should have absorbed most of the stock, leaving some to form the base of the teriyaki sauce. Combine the cornflour, 100ml of water, soy sauce and honey in a bowl, before adding into the pan and stirring continuously on a medium heat, until the sauce starts to thicken.
  • When the sauce has thickened, taste to see if it needs any more salt, then serve. Top with finely chopped spring onion and optional chilli flakes if you like things hot.
