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: Teriyaki Chicken Bake.

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.

Teriyaki Chicken Bake Step by Step


  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 lb chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
  • 2 cups vegetables (bell pepper, broccoli, green beans, etc.)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


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 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!

  7. We eat some sort of chicken 4 times a week at least so I am always looking for ways to spice it up!

  8. I am away this week to attend my daughter’s graduation. I can tell you the first meal I am going to cook when I go back home is that delicious chicken teriyaki. I haven’t had that for a while. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    1. I hope you have a great time with your daughter! I was in south Florida last weekend for my cousin’s high school graduation. It’s always nice to have a plan for a good easy dinner when you get home.

    I love that this is all in one pan! It’s the best kind of meal, in my opinion! We actually just tried green beans in the oven the other day with some sesame chicken and I was SO impressed with how they turned out. It’s nice that with this recipe you could mix in whatever veggies you had around. Yum!

  10. Can I just tell you that life has been hitting the fan lately with the end of the school year??? Most days I’m too busy to have time to THINK, even, so on the rare nights I actually GET to cook, I have been loving how fast and easy your recipes are! Thank you!!!

    1. Girl, don’t I know it! Two kids at two different schools, plus I am in charge of the yearbook at the elementary school. We’ve been doing super easy meals lately, including a night or two of grilled cheese sandwich and peanut butter and honey sandwich!

  11. This is an wonderful idea and easy to make as we have teriyaki sauce here in Japan. I don’t have a big oven, it is ok to cook it in a pan?

  12. You had me at quick and easy. Lol. I live the flavor of teriyaki but don’t make it often. I’ll have to change that!

  13. This looks so yummy as well as healthy. I love your recipes , they are easy to follow. I am going to try this soon too. Thank you so much..

    Ooo I am feeling Friday hunger already thanks to this lovely foodie post. Love the look of all those fresh veggies xx

  15. This meal looks like it would be so very good! I love teriyaki as a sauce – so we would devour this!

  16. I tried one of you recipes yesterday and it turned out great. The only problem is I let it get to my head and now my friends and family can’t live in peace. Haha. Thank you so much and keep on sharing.

    I’ll save this one for next weekend.

  17. I like this type of smart dishes for busy time and still have the teriyaki sauce left over from the grill from the long weekend..
    I think I will use it in the evening in a similar way, I will only replace chicken on tofu 🙂

  18. That will be on our table tomorrow. Not only I have all the ingredients, but we all also love Teriaky at home. Thanks for this great recipe, we will have an awesome Friday.

  19. Delicious recipe and making it in one pan is really handy when it comes to traveler or students who study aboard. Because there is no time and might not have the money to buy a couple of pans.
