  • Warm up the avocado oil in a large saucepan with a thick bottom, like a Dutch oven, over medium-high heat. If the pan has a deep lip, a large skillet, like a 12-inch nonstick skillet or sauté pan, will also function. When the onion starts to soften, add it and sauté it for three to four minutes.

 

  • Cover the skillet or pot after adding the bell pepper, grated carrot, and sliced cabbage. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring periodically, or until the cabbage has wilted.

  • Add the chopped chicken and green onions to the saucepan (or skillet) after moving the vegetables to one side. Give the chicken a few stirs and let it brown for five to eight minutes, keeping it apart from the vegetables. Stir the chicken into the veggies once it has browned.
  • After covering the saucepan and cooking the chicken over medium-high heat for 8 to 15 minutes, while stirring from time to time, the chicken should be cooked through. When the internal temperature of the chicken hits 165 degrees F, it is considered completely cooked. The temperature of every ingredient before it is added to the pot and your preferred level of doneness will determine exactly how long the food takes to cook.
  • After adding the teriyaki sauce to the pot, thoroughly mix everything to coat it. If it hasn’t already, cook on high heat while stirring occasionally until most of the liquid evaporates.

 

  • After giving the dish a taste test, adjust the flavor with extra vinegar, fresh lime juice, kosher salt, black pepper, liquid aminos (or soy sauce), etc. to suit your preferences. If desired, top with more finely chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

  • About one medium-sized head of green cabbage or two 14-oz bags of coleslaw mix can be made with this.

 

  • If you’d want to save time, use rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken.

  • You can use ¼ cup to ⅓ cup of your preferred store-bought teriyaki sauce instead of preparing your own.

 

  • For a soy-free paleo variation, use coconut aminos for the soy sauce. If you choose to do this, the coconut aminos have a naturally sweet taste, so you may skip the honey or pure maple syrup.

  • The sauce is thickened with cornstarch or tapioca flour. You can omit the sauce if you don’t mind that it tastes like teriyaki glaze.

 

  • Keep any leftover teriyaki chicken chilled in an airtight container.
