If you’re craving Chinese food, this dish will satisfy your taste-buds and it’s made with clean ingredients! I served mine with some brown rice (decided to take a break from my usual cauli-rice with this dish 😉 ) and it was so flavorful and delicious – we definitely did not miss the take-out. At first, I was going for a typical teriyaki and pineapple chicken dish, but I was looking in my pantry and saw a fresh bottle of BBQ sauce. So, I splashed a tablespoon in my sauce mixture, I’m so happy I did this because it made the sauce taste incredible.
