Quick and Healthy Hibachi

Quick and Healthy Hibachi

Growing up (and even now) hibachi was always my favorite meal. I went for every birthday dinner, always thought it was so special when we would go. Its oddly very expensive and kind of makes you feel like shiz immediately after. I would imagine that amount of vegetable oil, sugar and the fact that I legit cant stop eating it until its completely gone (anyone else?!) When I started dating DJ, he would make a hibachi type meal, using the yum-yum sauce you can get at the store, lots of sugary sweet chili and sodium filled soy sauces, etc. It was so good but still super uncomfortable post meal. I put together a healthy version of a yum yum sauce along with a veggie and chicken combo giving you the ultimate Healthy at-home Hibachi meal!
