Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs raw chicken breasts (whole or 'tenders')
  • kc masterpiece honey teriyaki sauce
  • mixed greens (the kind you can get pre-washed in a bag)
  • 5 teaspoons cooking oil (vegetable or olive)
  • 3 teaspoons sliced fresh ginger (easily the 'magic' ingredient!)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic


  1. Use hands to squeeze raw chicken pieces to get rid of most of the excess water.
  2. Cut raw chicken into bite-sized pieces and place on microwave-safe plate. Coat chicken (don't drown it!) generously with teriyaki sauce.
  3. Cover and microwave for 2.5 minutes but try not to cook completely. Set aside.
  4. Heat large saucepan on high.
  5. Add ginger to saucepan, heat it for 1 minute to dry it.
  6. Add cooking oil.
  7. Stir-fry until ginger starting to brown, then add garlic.
  8. Stir-fry until both ginger and garlic just starting to brown.
  9. Add teriyaki-coated chicken.
  10. Stir-fry for 5 minutes or until liquid is basically cooked off (the oil will stick around, obviously).
  11. Turn off heat, and immediately throw in mixed greens.
  12. One last quick stir to reduce/cook the greens, and serve!
