Here Are Your Ingredients:

4 Chicken Breasts
Teryiaki Sauce (Pick your fav) I used Kikkoman
Ginger (optional)
6 Garlic Cloves - Minced
2 Cups Brown Rice
8 Strawberries - Sliced





Depending on how you prefer to cook your chicken breast there are a few ways to create this dish. First, marinate your chicken for 3-6 hours in teriyaki sauce, 2 tablespoons of ginger root (or however much you prefer) and 2 garlic cloves minced. Now you can either BBQ the chicken or you can bake the chicken. In the summer I sure do prefer to BBQ so that I don’t heat up the house but it is totally up to you.

 If you choose to bake, bake chicken at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You will put chicken in oven safe baking pan and brush marinate on top of chicken breasts. After 15 minutes turn chicken breasts to other side and brush marinade that is now on bottom of the pan on top of chicken.

If you choose to BBQ, just make sure when you are cookin’ to be constantly brushing that yummy marinade on top of chicken.

In the mean time while these are cooking cook rice how you like. I like to use my handy dandy rice cooker yummy! Now place minced garlic, and sliced strawberries in a medium skillet. Cook over medium heat until garlic is browned.

When chicken is done place chicken on top of rice. Now place strawberry mixture on top of chicken. I like it with a side of fresh ginger but it's totally up to you :)

Hope you all are having a great day!! Hope this recipe doesn't scare you away I quite enjoyed it even though it is not a typical recipe; I definitely got my creative juices rollin' on this one!

Bon ABpetit!

    1. Thanks Sam and Lauren! After I posted this and we had left overs it actually is even better the next day when the garlic soaks in and gives it more flavor!
