Asian-Inspired Take-Out Fake-Out!

Want some take away but not the extra weight/wait? HA. I made a funny.

I threw all this stuff together with some oven baked chicken and had a pretty decent take-away replacement! You could serve this over rice or quinoa, too if you felt like it, this is just what I had on hand at the time (:

Step One:ย 

Get all of your veggies together. I used:

  • Red cabbage
  • Broccoli*
  • Green beans*
  • Red/yellow bell peppers
  • Yellow onion
  • Minced garlic


Step Two:

Season them with salt, pepper and ginger. *Steam some, fry some. I just used a little bit of olive oil to heat up and cook the veggies I wanted to use. Use what you like and cook them to your taste (:

Step Three:

SAUCE IT! You’ll need:

  • reduced sodium soy sauce
  • brown sugar

I threw in about 1/4 cup light brown sugar with 1/2-2/3? (I eyeballed it) of reduced sodium soy sauce and whisked it all together. In hindsight I probably should have warmed it in a pan to incorporate the sugar better, but; whatever.

Making the chicken!!

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375*F.
  • Cut up some onion and place it around the chicken.
  • Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and onions and cook until internal temp reaches 165F. I bet you could even marinate it for a few hours, too. But it was just as tasty without doing so.ย 

Once the veggies are steamed/cooked to your taste, make a little bit more of the soy sauce mixture. I made 1/2 the amount I used for the chicken, I could have used less though, so use at your own discretion! Add a sprinkle of ground ginger, if you want, I did.

Then serve up some veggies, cut up your chicken and enjoy! This would easily go well over some rice ๐Ÿš or even broccoli and cauliflower rice too ๐Ÿ’•
