My first meals prepping for the week, decided to do all chicken dishes since I have defrosted a bag of 2 kg chicken tights.
I have to prepare 3 dinners this week for the 2 of us so on the menu are teriyaki chicken with quick stir fry onion, BBQ chicken with caramelized onions and lemon honey chicken . It took me nearly 2 hours to prepare the ingredients and pack the meals in containers.
First thing I did was washed the chicken thighs, removed all the skins and chopped it into bite size pieces. Seasoned it with salt and pepper and let it marinate while I cut the onions. I used 1 yellow onions and 5 red onions as these are what I have on hand. I chopped some into 1 inch square and the rest into strips.
Pan fried the chicken in batches and remove from the pan once golden brown.
In a small bowl, prepare 3 tbs of light soy sauce, 3 tbs of mirin, 3 tbs of sake, 1 tbs of brown sugar. Stir lightly to dissolve the sugar. Put in a portion of the browned chicken tight back into the pan, on medium heat, stir in the sauce and cook it down until thickens.
Honey lemon chicken
Put in a portion of the browned chicken into a pan, on medium heat, quick pan fried the chicken with 2 tbs of light soy sauce, squeezed in the juice of half a lemon and about 2-3tbs of honey. Done when the sauce thickens a little. I throw in some sliced lemon for garnish!
Bento dinner boxes
I packed with white rice and 2 little cherry tomatoes for quick healthy homemade dinner.
