Teriyaki Chicken, Rice, Zucchini, Edamame

I have some prepared sauces on hand in the fridge for busy nights. I think it's always worth picking up a teriyaki sauce or marinade if you see them on sale at the grocery store.

Teriyaki Chicken
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 T butter
1/4 to 1/3 c teriyaki sauce
1 T corn starch, as needed

Coat a skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute until almost cooked through. Add butter and cook a couple minutes more, until chicken is barely browned. Add teriyaki sauce and heat through. (If your teriyaki sauce is the super thin kind, mix a little cornstarch with a splash of water and add to the pan. Boil for about a minute, or until sauce starts to thicken. Add more cornstarch as needed.)

Rice and Veggies
1 c rice
1 zucchini
2 to 3 T teriyaki sauce, or other Asian sauce
sesame seeds (optional)
frozen edamame

Prepare rice according to package directions.

Cut zucchini into thin circles. Saute with cooking spray until tender and somewhat translucent. Top with desired sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Microwave frozen edamame.
