Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry

This is one of my go-to recipes that I make a couple times a month. Every time I tell my family I’m making teriyaki chicken I get ooohhhh’s and ahhhh’s from my kids and my husband makes some kind of growling/purring noise – yeah, don’t ask :)

It’s slightly sweet, healthy, takes only 30 minutes to make. And when you serve it with rice or cauliflower rice, it’s stir-fry perfection!

*Next time I’m going to try adding 20 oz. of pineapple chunks when I add the veggies! It might seem odd, but I think the little bursts of sweetness would be awesome in this recipe.
