Chicken Teriyaki

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2/3 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp honey or pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp dried ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch optional

Instructions

All Cooking Methods

  • Combine sesame oil, chicken, Bragg Liquid Aminos, water, honey, garlic, and ginger in a large zip top plastic bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Instant Pot®

  • We will be using the pot-in-pot method to cook the rice and the chicken at the same time. We will finish the chicken in the oven for the best flavor.
  • Place chicken in Instant Pot®. Pour marinade over chicken. Top chicken with a metal steamer rack. Combine rice and water in an oven safe bowl that will fit inside your Instant Pot®. Place bowl on top of steamer rack.
  • Cover and set to sealing. Program for manual-high, and set time for 6 minutes. When time is up, allow natural pressure release for 10 minutes before releasing steam manually. Preheat oven to 450.
  • Remove rice bowl, and fluff rice with fork. Set aside.
  • Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • If desired, for thicker sauce, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 3 tablespoons water. Add slurry to sauce in Instant Pot® and stir to combine. Program for sauté. Heat to boiling and simmer until thick. (If no thicker sauce is desired, proceed to next step.)
  • Brush sauce over chicken. Bake at 450 for 5-8 minutes.

Stovetop/Oven

  • Preheat oven to 400. Remove chicken from marinade. Reserve marinade. Add chicken to greased oven-safe baking dish. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.
  • While chicken is cooking, combine rice and 3 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • While chicken and rice are cooking, add reserved marinade to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes.
  • For a thicker sauce, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 3 tablespoons water and add to sauce in saucepan. Stir well and return to a boil. Boil 2-3 minutes or until thick.
  • Brush sauce over chicken and return to oven, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes.
