Take the stress (and mess!) out of meal time with this quick and easy recipe for Sheet Pan Chicken Teriyaki and Veggies.
I am all about the quick, easy and mostly mess-free dinners these days. And with a 1-year-old who will thankfully eat just about anything—tuna tartare, shrimp risotto and lime wedges included—a meal that can be prepped, tossed onto one pan and then thrown into the oven for less than 30 minutes is a big win in our house.
This recipe for sheet pan chicken teriyaki can be as homemade or as store-bought as your heart desires. Whip up a quick-fix teriyaki sauce from scratch, or keep it super simple with your favorite bottled variety (this one is my all-time fave).
I tried this recipe several ways and found that tossing the chicken with the teriyaki sauce but tossing the veggies simply with olive oil, salt, and pepper allows the teriyaki flavor not to overwhelm the entire meal. And this way, you get perfectly cooked chicken and veggies that can be enjoyed as is for a low-carb dish, or piled atop rice or noodles for a full feast.
Read on for the recipe and head on over to Instagram to keep up with all of my latest adventures in New York City! I’m in Manhattan this week for lots of meetings and lots of eating. I can’t believe it’s been almost 4 years since I moved to the West Coast from the Big Apple, but it sure feels good to be back.
And for all those craving more teriyaki sensations, don’t miss recipes for Baked Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs, Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Teriyaki, and my personal favorite, Crispy Baked Teriyaki Chicken Wings that are perfect for a gourmet gameday or everyday snacking.
