Want some take away but not the extra weight/wait? HA. I made a funny.
I threw all this stuff together with some oven baked chicken and had a pretty decent take-away replacement! You could serve this over rice or quinoa, too if you felt like it, this is just what I had on hand at the time (:
Get all of your veggies together. I used:
- Red cabbage
- Green beans*
- Red/yellow bell peppers
- Yellow onion
- Minced garlic
Season them with salt, pepper and ginger. *Steam some, fry some. I just used a little bit of olive oil to heat up and cook the veggies I wanted to use. Use what you like and cook them to your taste (:
SAUCE IT! You’ll need:
- reduced sodium soy sauce
- brown sugar
I threw in about 1/4 cup light brown sugar with 1/2-2/3? (I eyeballed it) of reduced sodium soy sauce and whisked it all together. In hindsight I probably should have warmed it in a pan to incorporate the sugar better, but; whatever.
Making the chicken!!
- Pre-heat the oven to 375*F.
- Cut up some onion and place it around the chicken.
- Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and onions and cook until internal temp reaches 165F. I bet you could even marinate it for a few hours, too. But it was just as tasty without doing so.
Once the veggies are steamed/cooked to your taste, make a little bit more of the soy sauce mixture. I made 1/2 the amount I used for the chicken, I could have used less though, so use at your own discretion! Add a sprinkle of ground ginger, if you want, I did.
Then serve up some veggies, cut up your chicken and enjoy! This would easily go well over some rice 🍚 or even broccoli and cauliflower rice too 💕
