A quick fix dinner made in less than 30 min. And the teriyaki sauce is completely homemade and way better than store-bought!
Noodle bowls are my weakness.
It’s your protein and your carbs neatly packed into one bowl. Convenient, right?
And with this homemade teriyaki sauce, it won’t even come close to take-out.
It won’t even take as long as ordering take-out!
Now don’t be worried about the 1 hour prep time. 45-50 min of it is idle time.
Once the teriyaki sauce is made and the chicken is marinating, you can cook everything else in 10 minutes.
I told you it would be a quick-fix dinner!
