How to Make Pineapple-Citrus Teriyaki Chicken & Veggie Stir-Fry

Step-by-Step

  1. Make sauce:

    In a large bowl, add: pineapple juice, *grapefruit juice, *orange juice, teriyaki sauce, mirin, oyster sauce, sesame oil, Szechuan sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, *and water, if needed. Whisk thoroughly. Add cornstarch and whisk thoroughly. Set aside.
  2. Cut the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces.

    Medium dice the onion

    Slice the carrots thinly, and on the diagonal.
  3. Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Add enough butter and oil to stir-fry the vegetables

    Stir-fry broccoli, onions, and carrots til tender-crisp. Remove and set aside.
  4. Cube chicken breasts, and salt and pepper them.

    In same skillet, add enough oil to stir-fry the chicken. Add chicken; when almost done, add vegetables back to skillet.
  5. Pour sauce into skillet and stir to combine with the chicken and vegetables. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring, for a few minutes, to thicken the sauce.
  6. Serve immediately over rice, quinoa, or noodles. Top with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
  7. *I sometimes use True Lemon crystals when I'm out of fresh lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit juice. If you use these crystals, you DEFINITELY need to dilute with 1 1/2 cups of water; and, even if you use fresh juice, you can dilute some, according to your taste.
