My lazy girl teriyaki chicken only takes 10 minutes to make – it’s too easy and reheats well as leftovers
A FITNESS influencer shared her “lazy girl” teriyaki chicken recipe that’s quick and easy.
She said not only does it take ten minutes to make but it also reheats well for leftovers.
MaKayla (@makayla_thomas_fit) shared the recipe with over 950,000 TikTok followers.
The nutrition specialist shared the lazy meal that she ate while on her weight loss journey.
She started off with boneless, skinless chicken — she personally used six tenderloins — cut into bite-sized pieces.
Next came 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce or coconut aminos, and then finished off with garlic, pepper, and ginger.
She spread out the mixture in a preheated air fryer and cooked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for four minutes, then flipped over the chicken for another four minutes.
MaKayla plated the chicken with cauliflower rice mixed into rice and some veggies.
Her recipe makes about three servings, perfect for meal prep as well.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on her recipe.
“Mixing the cauliflower rice into the regular rice, may just be the game changer for me,” said one commenter.
“I can’t explain my hatred for cooking/handling chicken, but an air fryer might just be the right idea,” said another.
“I hate cooking, but wanted to give this a try,” said a third.
“I made it tonight and my family loved it!! It was super easy! Thank you!!!”
