Let’s get the sauce out of the way. Add the cornstarch to a bowl and mix with a ¼ of a cup of water. Whisk until blended (use a fork if you don’t have a whisk).
Chop the clove of garlic and add it to a heated saute pan and cook until soft and starts to smell fragrant.
Once the garlic is soft add the soy sauce, ginger, honey, brown sugar, lemon juice, and a cup of water and bring to a boil. Cook for 2-3 mins and remove from heat to settle.
Next, heat a medium saute pan with two tablespoons of oil over medium heat, a large saucepot full of water over high heat, and a medium saucepan with 4 cups of water over high heat until boiling.
Take your chicken and slice it lengthwise into strips. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic.
Add the chicken to the heated pan and cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes until browned.
While that’s cooking, thinly slice or shred your carrots and chop your cabbage into strips. Add them to the heated pan once you remove the chicken and cook until they begin to soften. (Pro Tip - use a mandolin if you have one. So much easier).
At the same time, in the pot of boiling water (4 cups) add the rice, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for about 10 mins. Use a fork to fluff the rice and make sure its absorbed the water.
If you want to save some time add the broccoli florets about 5 mins in and let them cook together, otherwise add your broccoli to the third pot and heat on low for about 5-7 mins.
Once the Broccoli is done, add it, the chicken, cabbage, and green onions to the saute pan over medium heat.
Stir in your sauce and cover. Simmer for 2-3 mins allowing the chicken to cook through and the flavors to blend.
Grab a big spoonful of your cooked rice and put it in a bowl. Then, use the spoon to take some of the sauce and layer it around the rice so you have a little well of flavor. Last, top the rice with an even mix of chicken and veggies and boom. Teriyaki deliciousness.
