My family loves this dish. It’s so full of fresh vegetables and good vitamins. Serve it with white rice or brown rice and Chinese noodles. We even buy little boxes of fortune cookies to make dinner festive.

½ onion
½ cup Teriyaki sauce

You can make this with chicken, too. Cut two chicken breasts into thin strips. Make sure the meat is fully cooked before adding the veggies.
