It's no secret around these parts that I don't consider myself to be the best cook. In fact, cooking can be very discouraging. True story, I didn't cook chicken until at least 6 months into our marriage. But hey, I didn't want to give my newly husband food poisoning, can you blame me? But, as the months have gone by I have gotten more and more confident in well not killing my husband with my cooking.
Besides learning that I can cook chicken without killing anyone, I've also learned that date nights don't always have to be fancy, dressing up and going out. In fact, some of my favorite date nights are the ones spent staying in.
Lately, as a date night-in, Thomas has been teaching me how to cook different meals. It's a win-win. We get to spend time together, it makes cooking more fun, and I learn new meals I feel comfortable cooking so Thomas gets better meals during the week.
Our latest cooking date night? Chicken Teriyaki Skewers.
2 Chicken Breasts
Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce
Seasame Seeds (optional)
Green Onions (optional)
1. Cut chicken breast into cubes, and cook on medium heat with about 2 tbsp of the teriyaki sauce.
2. Once the chicken is mostly cooked through (and turning white), pour enough teriyaki sauce to cover the entire pan (about 1/4 cup).
3. Bring sauce to a boil and cook chicken about 4 minutes.
4. Let chicken cool a little, and put on the skewers.
5. Add sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
Y'all the Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce makes this meal so so easy. What I love is that it can be a marinade or a sauce, so if you forget to marinade your chicken beforehand (totally something I would do, more than once), you can just cook the chicken in the teriyaki sauce to really get that flavor profile.
Another successful date night, and I have enough leftovers to turn this meal into a lunch tomorrow, I'm thinking it would make a fantastic asian inspired salad or served with broccoli (we like to steam them with seasoned salt and garlic salt). yum.
What is your favorite date night meal? Have you tried this marinade before? Happy hump day sweets.
