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!
