It’s Friday, and Rach’s quick and easy MYOTO (make your own takeout) teriyaki chicken is a great way to kick off the weekend. Serve it with sauteed spinach or steamed broccolini; timing-wise, cook it after you cover the pot of rice. And while you’re preparing dinner, sip on John’s Sake-It to Me Cocktail, which he created to go with the meal.
Pro Tip from Rach: You can use store-bought teriyaki sauce instead of making your own, if you like.
