I love easy meals for weeknights. And this one I’m sharing with you today is so easy…it’s only five ingredients! You can’t get any simpler and you can sub out for your favorite vegetables and have dinner on the table in 40 minutes! And even better, it only cooks in one pot…can’t get any better than that!

The main ingredient is Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade. I love using this stuff right out of the bottle for marinating chicken, tofu, veggies, beef, etc. This is the ingredient that gives this dish the huge amount of depth and flavor.

And even better, it’s has no preservatives and no artificial flavors!

For this recipe, I wanted to add a citrus element so I mixed the marinade with orange juice. All of my ingredients…I purchased at Walmart in the Asian section.

When you’re getting ready to cook the chicken, remove the chicken from the plastic bag and place on a paper towel-lined plate. This will remove the excess marinade and ensure the meat will get seared.

Cook the bottom of the chicken first.

And then next, cook the tops of the chicken. (brown each side of the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes.)

Remove the pan from the heat and add in the reserved 1/4 of the marinade mixture.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 6 thighs)
  • 1 cup Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced into strips

Directions:

  3. Remove the chicken and place on a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Heat a large oven-safe skillet with olive oil on medium for 3 to 4 minutes. Brown the chicken 3 to 4 minutes on each side. (Lower heat to medium if needed.) Remove skillet from heat.
  5. Pour reserved marinade into the skillet with the chicken. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Place vegetables in the pan with the chicken. Place skillet in the oven for 15 to 17 minutes.
  6. Serve with rice or noodles.
