Quick Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

What You'll Need:
(serves 2) 
2 tbsp olive oil
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, diced
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
two large handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup fresh green beans, ends trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup prepared brown rice 

What To Do:
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Be sure chicken pieces are completely dry. Salt and pepper generously. Cook chicken and onion together until chicken is no longer pink and the onion is soft. Add spinach, mushrooms and green beans to the skillet and cook 2-3 more minutes or until spinach is wilted.

In a separate bowl, stir together cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and black pepper. Pour into skillet and stir all of the ingredients together. Cook together, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thickened. Let simmer five more minutes on low heat. Spoon over rice and serve immediately.
