Serves 4

Mirin is a rice wine low in alcohol, and most of it cooks off in this recipe. For a nonalcoholic substitute, use a mixture of equal parts rice vinegar and sugar.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

Combine soy sauce and next 4 ingredients (through broth) in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken thighs to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to a cutting board; cool slightly. Cut into (1-inch) strips.

Step 4

Return pan to medium-high heat; add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pan. Add snow peas and onions; sauté 2 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture and chicken to pan; cook 2 minutes or until liquid is syrupy and chicken is thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Place 1 cup rice in each of 4 shallow bowls; top each serving with 1 cup chicken mixture.

This recipe was extremely easy and delicious. We added some carrots and broccoli and it was fantastic. Really good quick, week-night dinner.

I thought this meal was spectacular. Not only was it very tasty, it was easy yo make. I used mushrooms and green onions. The chicken turned out very tender and the sauce was yummy. Served it over rice prepared in my rice cooker.

This recipe has become part of my regular rotation but DEFINITELY halve the sugar - the first time I made it I followed the 3 TBSP instructions and could hardly eat it it was so sweet - I almost wonder if it's a misprint and should be 3 TSP... anyway, with that change it's a keeper and really good.

Agreed on other reviews- tasty flavor / gooey Chinese food takeout taste; could double or triple veggies and still be good- we added broccoli and it was a nice addition.

This recipe was pretty good. The sauce could have been a little thicker, maybe a little cornstarch would help. I agree with some of the other reviews, it needed more veggies. I threw in some broccoli I had on hand to help the recipe go a little further. It was definitely sweet and I only used half the amount of sugar it called for. A little tweaking would make this a better recipe.
