Healthy Recipe: Teriyaki Chicken

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 – 4oz chicken breasts
  • 1/4 c Splenda
  • 1 tbsp garlic, diced
  • 1/2 c light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
  • 1 pkg Shiritaki orzo
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Put the soy sauce, water, splenda, brown sugar, ginger and garlic in a small pan and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes or until reduced.
  2. Trim all the visible fat from the chicken breast then make small slits down the length of each piece.
  3. Use the smallest casserole dish you can and still fit the chicken in a single layer.
  4. Pour about 1/3 of the sauce over the chicken.
  5. Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake 25 minutes or until chicken is starting to feel nearly firm to the touch.
  6. Remove foil and turn pieces over. Use a pastry brush to brush sauce all over the top side of chicken. Put back in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes more, brushing the sauce about every 5 minutes. Serve the juice and extra sauce over the top. Put back on stove and simmer for a couple minutes. Serve over shiritaki orzo.
