What's this? A recipe on a Tuesday? Well. The good news is I'm aiming to make StudentChow my full time project now! More recipes each week, more blogs on Tumblr, and some other cool stuff coming soon (make sure you follow the blog on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter for more info). For now though, I was thinking about this one back when I was making the Steak sandwich. If Stir-Fry is a royal staple of a Student Diet, then Teriyaki has to be the best stir fry sauce. It can be made out of cheap store cupboard ingredients and goes with anything as a sweet, salty, sour (and relatively clean) choice.

The chicken is very very good. Unfortunately I didn't have any skewers so I fried the chicken in a pan. I combined the chicken from this recipe with the rice from the "chicken teriyaki" recipe. I added some leek and fresh chili. Gives you a great meal and a satisfied family ;)


Apparently my teriyaki sauce is much thinner than the one they used, so I have a dipping bowl of it on the side. Also I used zucchini instead of peas because...I had a zucchini and no peas
