One-Pot Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables

You either get bitter or you get better.  It’s that simple.  You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down.  The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you. —Josh Shipp

 INGREDIENTS

Servings: 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 chicken breasts, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger

3. Add garlic and ginger, sauté for 2 minutes until fragrant.
4. Add 2 cups of water and the rice and stir.
5. Cover the pot and bring water to a boil.
