There’s no getting away from it, chicken is probably the #1 source of protein for bodybuilders. It’s versatile, relatively cheap and with a little imagination & effort, you can use chicken in just about any recipe.
So here’s another classic chicken recipe, packed with protein & carbs. You can probably tell I’m bulking at the moment so the last 3-4 recipes have all been loaded with carbs. I’ll be back cutting soon so I’ll be posting more low carb recipes.
In the meantime, enjoy this delicious loaded chicken recipe!
- 4 skinless/boneless chicken breasts
- 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1/3 cup of orange juice
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/3 teaspoon ginger
- ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ cup broccoli florets
- 1 can sliced water chestnuts
- ½ cup rice
Cut chicken breasts into ¼ “ pieces and set them aside
In a small mixing bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, orange juice, cornstarch and ginger, and set aside.
In a large skillet heat oil over high heat. Add the chicken pieces and stir fry until they are lightly browned, for about 4-7 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon (or something similar), transfer the chicken pieces to a bowl. Leave the drippings in the skillet.
Reduce the heat to moderate.
Add broccoli to the skillet and stir fry for 3-5 minutes.
Stir the teriyaki mixture and add to the broccoli in the skillet.
Cook the mixture, stirring until it thickens and is bubbly for about 2-4 minutes.

Continue cooking until heated through.
