Dukan Teri Chicken Stir Fry

Teri Chicken Stir Fry
 We liked this recipe, but we botched it a bit.

First of all, Teri is Teriyaki -- I'm not sure what others call it in different parts of the country, but if you go to a plate lunch place here, it's often referred to as Teri.  We used Larry  I'm sure if we followed the recipe exactly as is, it would be great, but we used Truvia instead of sugar to make it Dukan.  We used less Truvia than the recipe called for, but our mistake was not adding it in gradually and tasting the sauce to find the right sweetness.  It didn't come out bad, but it is a bit sweet.

Sunday was an extremely voggy day.  The vog was so thick even Diamond Head looked like there was a sheer drape in front of it.  The vog usually caused a person to feel sluggish and those with allergies often times suffer from headaches, bleeding noses, and congestion.  We had almost all of the symptoms!  Of course, this lead to both of us lazying around the house, forcing ourselves to get things done which meant dinner wasn't planned out.  We would have liked to make Teri Chicken in our grill pan, but due to the lack of time, we decided to use the sauce as a stir fry sauce.

We usually like to slice our stir fry meats thin, but in our mad rush, we cut our chicken tenderloins into chunks and only got to marinate the chicken for about 5 minutes.   Hopefully we'll have time to cook up some Teri Chicken in our grill pan this weekend.

As mentioned earlier, it wasn't bad, just poorly prepared!

Serves: 2-4 (depending if you have brown rice or something with it)
Prep Time: less than 10 minutes if you already have your sauce prepared
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

1 lb. chicken tenderloins (we cut ours into cubes, but next time we'll cut it into thing slices)
1 1/2 c. broccoli florets, cut into smaller pieces
Cold water or water with ice in it to cool down your broccoli

1/4 c. Dukan Teriyaki Sauce (Hawaii Style)

Stir Fry Sauce:
2-4 T. Dukan Teriyaki Sauce (or more, depending on your taste)

Marinate chicken for 15 minutes or longer.

Over high heat, bring water to a boil (we used just enough to cover our broccoli), add broccoli and boil for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  Remove broccoli and place broccoli into cold/ice water.  Over high heat, spray a  stir fry pan or wok with a little bit of non-stick spray or a little bit of olive oil if you prefer.  As soon as your pan is hot, add chicken discarding marinade.  Add 2 T. of fresh teriyaki sauce to the pan.  Stir fry chicken until 85% cooked.   Remove chicken from pan and set aside.  Add broccoli and 2 T. fresh teriyaki sauce to pan and stir fry.  Add more teriyaki sauce if needed.  Stir fry for a minute.  Add chicken back and cook until chicken is done.

Serve as is for a PV/Cruise meal, with red or brown rice during Consolidation.

Enjoy....we sort of did!
