One thing I want to get better at as a home cook is making my own Chinese food. While there are great places that accommodate those of us on a gluten-free diet, the truth is they are still filled with unhealthy ingredients and, well, there’s a high cross contamination risk too. But why, oh why, does Chinese takeout have to taste so good?!?
Today I want to share a recipe with you that you can make in the time it would have taken you to run to the restaurant to pick up dinner. Plus, this will taste better, be full of only fresh ingredients, and will make you feel like you should be eating this meal from a takeout box because it taste that good!
I served this Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple stir fry over sticky rice I made in the rice cooker.
There is nothing that I don’t love about this recipe – and it’s officially been added to our family’s dinner rotation (Jewish tradition calls for an innate love of Chinese food – I think I’ll make this recipe again on Christmas!).
You’ll want to prep all your ingredients ahead of time – the cooking process goes fast!
This recipe is inspired by a recipe I found on Pinterest created by Flavor of the Moments. I’ve made a few changes and of course made this 100% gluten free. (PS: Come find Good For You Gluten Free on Pinterest please!)
