It's no secret that I don't really like Chinese food. It makes me feel gross and I'm hungry like 15 minutes after eating it.
But I do like brown rice and chicken and veggies.
A few weeks ago, while shopping at my neighborhood Trader Joe's when I discovered Soyaki Sauce.
Since Mr. Snowgoose likes Chinese food (and pretty much everything) I decided to make my own version of Chinese take out.
It's relatively simple and quite filling.
3 or 4 tablespoons Soyaki Sauce
garlic cloves, crushed (as much or as little as you like)
three or four small chicken breasts
frozen edamame, unshelled
2 cups instant brown rice cooked
2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Cook brown rice as directed
2. In a skillet saute chicken in garlic, olive oil, and soyaki sauce
3. When chicken is nearly cooked, toss in frozen veggies and saute with additional sauce.
4. Mix everything in a big bowl.
If you're a vegetarian, this is relatively easy to modify. Switch out the chicken for tofu or just add more veggies.
That time we went to Tofino
