Jack Daniels™ Teriyaki Chicken

A quick chicken and vegetable stir fry tossed with a super-easy and flavorful homemade Jack Daniels™ teriyaki sauce.

Ingredients

Jack Daniels™ Teriyaki Sauce:

1/3
cup soy sauce
2
tablespoons Jack Daniels™ whiskey
2
tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1
tablespoon brown sugar
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
2
tablespoons water
1
teaspoon cornstarch

Chicken Stir Fry:

1 1/2
pounds chicken, sliced thin
1
large red pepper, sliced thin
2
cups snap peas
2
tablespoons neutral oil (such as canola)
Cooked white rice, for serving

Directions

  • 1 To make Jack Daniels™ teriyaki sauce, whisk together all ingredients except water and cornstarch in a small pot over medium-low heat. Whisk well to dissolve sugars and bring to a simmer.
  • 2 In a separate small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch so there are no lumps. Add cornstarch mixture to pot and continue to simmer until sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon, about 5-6 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and let cool.
  • 3 To make stir-fry, add neutral oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add chicken and cook until chicken is cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Then add red peppers and snap peas and cook for just another minute. Don’t overcook the vegetables!
  • 4 Remove skillet from heat and add half of the teriyaki sauce to the skillet. Toss to combine and coat. Serve over rice with extra sauce on the side.

Step By Step  

Jack Daniels™ Teriyaki Chicken

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Learning how to make a quick and simple stir-fry sauce is a great way to take your home cooking to the next level.

 

Sure, there a million jarred sauces you can buy in the store, but making one at home gives you the chance to add your own flavor twist…like Jack Daniels™!

(Don’t worry. The booze quickly evaporates from the sauce while the sauce is reducing so this recipe is still family friendly. It’ll just have a deeper and more complex flavor.)

Teriyaki Chicken

To start the sauce, add all the ingredients except the water and cornstarch to a small pot and bring to a simmer. Stir them well to make sure the sugars are dissolved.

In a separate bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch to form a slurry. Then whisk this into the sauce pot. This will prevent lumps from forming.


Teriyaki Chicken

After a 5-6 minutes of slow simmering, the sauce should thicken up nicely. You don’t want it to be too thick—it should be this enough to pour, but thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. At this point you can cool the sauce and make your stir-fry.


Teriyaki Chicken

To start, just cube up some chicken with a red pepper and some fresh snap peas.


Teriyaki Chicken

Cook the chicken in a large skillet over medium-high heat with a good drizzle of neutral oil. Once the chicken is completely cooked through (5-6 minutes), add the red pepper and snap peas. Don’t cook the veggies for more than a minute or two or they will just get soggy.

To finish the stir-fry, remove it from the heat and pour in half of the teriyaki sauce. Toss everything together and serve the stir-fry over rice with extra teriyaki sauce on the side.
