This teriyaki chicken stir fry is easy and delicious! It takes 45 minutes total including the 30 minute marination time. The best way to save time is to marinate the chicken the night before so that when you are ready for dinner you can just chef everything up in 15 minutes!
Per serving this recipe has 350 calories, 30g carbs, 5g fat and 45g protein! Most of the carbs come from the rice, so feel free to reduce the amount if needed. I also mixed the rice into the stir fry however you can leave it separate to customize your macros.
