Me, cooking in the kitchen? Yup, and so can you! Stop making excuses as to why you don’t know how to cook but would like to learn. There are several recipes online, and your family’s traditional ones as well. So, get in the kitchen and try something new!
I was craving some chicken and broccoli the other day and I wanted to try and make it at home. I did it! The photo above was the result. Jeff loves ordering Chinese food, but I’m not a big fan of takeout. Why order when I can just whip something up, and save us some money?
I recently purchased an Asian marinating sauce from Costco and it’s great for my Asian Saturdays. The sauce is called Mr. Yoshida’s Marinade and Cooking Sauce. I like it. It’s not too sweet and perfect for marinating meat. So, how did I make this plate, you ask?
Ingredients: To make the rice White rice (whichever brand you prefer) Salt Extra virgin olive oil Crockpot/Big pot
Chicken and broccoli Fresh/frozen broccoli (I prefer fresh) Three uncooked chicken breasts Mr. Yoshida’s Marinade and Cooking Sauce Water Non-stick pan White/brown sugar
What to do:
Get the rice going first. Warm up your pot/turn on your crockpot. Add two cups of rice to your pot, two cups of water, a tablespoon of extra olive oil and a dash of salt for flavor.
Now, it’s off to the chicken and broccoli! I like to start with warming up the pan. Let it warm up for about 2-3 minutes, depending on your stove. Add the chicken breasts to the pan. When the chicken begins to look white, chop it in 2 or 3 inch sizes (as shown in image above). Then add the broccoli.After 5-10 minutes (again, depending on your stove), add a top-filled amount of Mr. Yoshida’s Marinade and Cooking Sauce. Top-filled meaning use the top of the container as a measurement. If you’re using the big bottle, one top-filled amount is enough. If it’s a smaller bottle, use three top-filled. Add a cup of water and a tablespoon of sugar. Stir and let it cook for 10 minutes on med-low.
