Quick and Easy Teriyaki Chicken Bake

Quick and Easy Teriyaki Chicken Bake

Use just one pot and one pan to make a delicious teriyaki chicken meal that's packed with veggies and quick and easy for those busy nights.

Don’t you just love the recipes that only take one or two pans, and not much active time? I know I do! They make dinner quick and easy and clean up even easier as well. Those crazy weeknights that we all tend to have call for just this type of meal.

I decided to try something out that would use just one pot and one baking sheet. I love teriyaki flavoring, especially when it’s homemade. A homemade sauce tastes so much better than any you can buy from the store. And it’s so simple to make.

Another goal for this year has been to try to eat more healthy and to make sure we eat more vegetables every day. So I figured out ways to work some broccoli, green beans, and bell peppers into this as well.

And, of course, since I was making this with some rice, it gave me yet another excuse to break out one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, my rice steamer. It makes the rice perfectly and takes about the same amount of time as the chicken did, so it was all ready at the same time.

If you enjoy teriyaki flavor as much as I do, you should also check out my recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowl, inspired by one of my favorite restaurants (Bentos) that we used to go to often when we lived in Orlando a few years ago.

Step by Step

Once I had the rice in the steamer, I started on the sauce. It’s a super simple sauce and only takes a few minutes to make. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, water and cornstarch, minced garlic, and honey. Keep it over medium heat until it starts to bubble and thicken, then remove from the heat.

On a baking sheet, place the chicken in the middle, and surround it with whatever vegetables you want for your meal. We used some broccoli, green beans, and leftover bell pepper from making the Southwestern Salad.

Then sprinkle it with a bit of salt and pepper.

Cover the chicken and all of the vegetables with the teriyaki sauce and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

After it’s done baking, slice the chicken and serve it warm over the rice.

Add your vegetables to the bowl, and you can garnish with green onion or sesame seeds. I also like to add just a bit more soy sauce to the top, so the rice isn’t too dry.

    I love love that you did this all on one pan! Definitely going to try this for dinner tonight as I have been struggling to come up with ideas and one pot is my preferred way to go!

  2. I love teriyaki chicken and this looks delicious! Perfect timing because we were wondering what we should have tonight!

  3. I will have to try this one of these nights for dinner! I love the taste of teriyaki dishes (never attempted to make it myself though) Nows the time, right?! thanks for the recipe ; )

  4. Love that this was done with pretty much one pan! I recently moved into an apartment with no dishwasher (though I was told there was one in the unit) so finding one pan recipes has become a bit of an obsession in my downtime seeing as I don’t have much time for washing dishes each night.

  5. I am really hungry now!!! This is definitely a meal I will be making for my family! I loved every that it’s healthy and looks super delicious!!

    1. My boys are young enough that we aren’t always on the go just yet, but it isn’t easy to cook long and drawn out recipes with them around either so I need quick and easy most nights as well.

  6. YES! I am always sold when I hear that it only takes one or two pans! Makes such a big difference!! Plus, Teriyaki Chicken is SOOOOO good!
