Restyling Chicken

Leftovers are pretty common around here, but after a couple days of the same things The Captain starts to complain. We don't like to waste food though, so I try my best to remake stale old food into something he can't quite recognize as a leftover. Let's revisit chicken adobo!

Here's what you'll need: teriyaki sauce, corn starch, brown sugar cooking oil, canned mushrooms, carrots, and broccoli ( use whatever veggies you have on hand)

Let's not forget the leftover chicken!

Start by getting the rice on

Cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces

Heat up a Tbs of your favorite cooking oil and warm up the chicken

Add a handful of chopped carrots

While the carrots are cooking drain the can of mushrooms into a small dish and add a Tbs of corn starch, mix it well to dissolve

Add in a 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

Then the starch

Let it simmer into a gravy (I planned on adding some brown sugar, but after tasting the sauce I decided it wasn't necessary)

Add the mushrooms

When the rice is almost done, add your chopped broccoli and cover for about 5 minutes on medium high heat

Serve it up! Instead of hearing complaints about leftovers you can hear complaints such as: "You know I don't like stir-fry" and "Mommy, next time make the good broccoli." Go ahead and smack them. ignore them.  :)  Enjoy!
