This silly simple Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry recipe includes only a few basic components: chicken thighs, teriyaki sauce, bell pepper, and green beans. BOOM, thassit! And avocado oil.
Let’s talk teriyaki.
What Type of Teriyaki Sauce to Use:
Really, you can use any teriyaki sauce you’d like. My top two suggestions would be to make it homemade by following my recipe for Paleo Teriyaki Sauce – this results in soy-free, refined sugar-free teriyaki for those of you with dietary restrictions.
As an alternative, you can purchase a paleo-friendly teriyaki sauce from the store. Coconut Secret Teriyaki Sauce is an AMAZING option. You can find it at Whole Foods and many regular grocery stores. If you aren’t soy and sugar-free, Veri Veri Teriyaki is my favorite non-paleo teriyaki sauce.
How to Make Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry:
Begin by browning the chicken.
Add the avocado oil to a large skillet and heat to medium. Add the chopped chicken thighs and cook until browned and much liquid has rendered, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a bowl and set aside.
Add bell pepper and green beans to skillet, stir, cover and cook 3 minutes.
Transfer chicken and teriyaki sauce to skillet. Cover and cook 3 minutes.
Uncover and cook 5 to 8 minutes, until sauce has thickened and desired done ness is achieved.
Serve chicken teriyaki stir fry with choice of rice, cauliflower rice, rice noodles, vegetables noodles, etc.
- If you don’t follow a Low-FODMAP diet, add ½ yellow onion and 4 cloves of garlic.
- Replace green beans and bell pepper with preferred veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and/or zucchini.
