Teriyaki Chicken and Rice

Last night we had one of my "easy dinners". It's fast to make, yet full of yummy flavor. My kids always gobble this up!
Teriyaki Chicken and Rice

2 lbs chicken, cut into 1 inch squares
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar

Cook rice as directed. While rice is cooking, cook chicken in a large skillet with a splash of olive oil that has been heated. Stir chicken occasionally until browned on the outside and cooked through on the inside. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine soy sauce, water and brown sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cook over medium heat until sauce begins to bubble, but not boil over. Add sauce to cooked chicken in skillet and simmer until sauce thickens up and is more like a syrup. My kids like is a little more saucy than syrupy, so really, the amount of time you let it simmer is up to you.
Serve over cooked rice

Serves 4-6
