Making this Sweet and Sour Teriyaki Cauliflower Chicken Stir Fry
So, to make this Teriyaki Cauliflower Chicken Stir Fry, begin by marinating the chicken pieces and Cauliflower florets with a combination of sauces and spices.
First, add Soy Sauce, then add some Rice Vinegar, Some Honey, Sriracha, Tomato Ketchup, Red Chili Paste, and chopped Garlic Cloves. Also add some Lemon juice, salt and pepper to this and toss it all up together. Cover and refrigerate it for about 30 minutes, so that the Cauliflower florets and the Chicken Pieces soak up all the juices and the sauces and become tender and flavourful!
Then, heat some Sesame Oil in a skillet and added the Chicken and Cauliflower pieces. Save some of the sauce and use it for basting. You need to stir fry the Chicken and Cauliflower over high flame. Once it gets crusty, baste with some of the sauce and cover cook for 5 minutes over low flame.
Cooking the Chicken over a low flame for at least 10 minutes will make it tender and juicy. Also, keep basting at regular intervals otherwise the Chicken will become too dry.
Meanwhile, make a quick sauce which you can serve with this stir fry, if you are to serve this with rice or quinoa or noodles. So, for the sauce, combine soy sauce with rice vinegar, sriracha, honey, garlic paste, salt and pepper. Mix all of it and keep aside.
Now, after about 10-15 minutes, remove the lid and stir well.
Take it up in a Cabbage leaf and serve aside some rice or rice noodles or anything carb-y of your choice. Also, serve the sauce you made with this.
And of course, drizzle some of that sauce over your Chicken and Cauliflower. Sprinkle some sesame seeds and green onions on top and finally, you’re all ready to serve this Sweet and Sour Teriyaki Chicken Cauliflower.
