Tasty chicken teriyaki recipe with hints of finely grated ginger and apple juice. Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise gives the juicy chicken a smooth, creamy texture.
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup finely grated fresh ginger
3 Tbsp. firmly packed dark brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 red chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
3 Tbsp. Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 oz. ea.), thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 medium red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
2/3 cup baby spinach leaves
Bring apple juice, soy sauce, ginger, brown sugar, garlic and chile pepper to a boil in medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Combine Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise with 1/2 of the apple juice mixture in medium non-aluminum bowl or shallow baking dish. Reserve remaining apple juice mixture. Stir in chicken. Cover and marinate in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, about 4 hours.
Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet and cook chicken, red bell pepper and red onion, over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken and vegetables to serving dish and keep warm.
Heat reserved apple juice mixture in medium skillet and cook spinach, stirring occasionally, just until wilted, about 3 minutes. Pour spinach mixture over chicken. Sprinkle, if desired, with toasted sesame seeds.
