It has been such a long time since I’ve posted a recipe here. Since my little girl started Kindergarten this year I feel like someone has pressed the fast forward button on my life – there is just so much going on at the moment! I hope to be more active with you all from now on – especially now that the weather is getting warmer and I am feeling more inspired in the kitchen to whip up some new fresh and healthy meals!

This healthy Teriyaki Chicken dish is so easy it doesn’t really qualify as a recipe. My kids love it with rice and we enjoy it with cauliflower rice (as pictured). I have shared my instructions for cauliflower rice before on this website here and also in my book. This is a quick and super tasty meal for young and old alike – I hope you enjoy it!
Quick and Healthy Teriyaki Chicken
What you will need:
- 2 chicken breasts (or thighs if you prefer) diced
- Oil of your choice – coconut oil, olive oil, butter
- A handful of parsley for garnish (optional)
Marinade – whisk the following together in a bowl
- 3 Tablespoons Tamari (or soy sauce)
- 1 Teaspoon Honey
- 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
Toss the chicken through the marinade until well coated. If you have time, you can let it sit for an hour or so to marinate, but if you are in a hurry that’s fine too!
Put some coconut oil/olive oil/ butter in a pan and stir fry the chicken until it’s cooked through and coated with a heavenly glaze.
Serve over your choice of rice with some parsley for garnish.
If you would prefer, you could baste a couple of chicken breasts or thighs and bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 30 minutes (or until cooked through). Drumsticks and wings would work brilliantly too!
