    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 6 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias, greens and whites separated

    • 1 cup fresh snow peas

    • In 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and salt; cook 6 to 8 minutes on first side, without moving, until chicken is browned on bottom and releases easily from pan. Stir chicken; stir in green onion whites and bell pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Stir broth, teriyaki sauce and rice into chicken mixture in Dutch oven. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and cook 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove from heat.
