Ginger-Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry

This afternoon my husband and I caught a whiff of Asia Grille as we walked past. You know what that means… We’re having stir fry tonight! The sweet and tangy teriyaki Sauce is enough to make any meat mouth-watering, and mixing that with crunchy, yet tender fresh veggies… YUM! This recipe hit the spot while saving $ and staying within our sodium intake for the day (or week).

1 cup water
1/4 cup Bragg liquid amines (or soy sauce)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp honey
2 tbsp cornstarch

  1. In a small sauce pan mix all but cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water, bring to a near boil
  2. Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a small bowl, stir until dissolved. Add mixture to sauce pan.
  3. Heat while stirring often until the sauce reaches your desired thickness.
