20-Minute One-Pan Chicken Teriyaki Recipe (No Bottled Sauce Here) by Ann Marie Patitucci

20-Minute One-Pan Chicken Teriyaki Recipe (No Bottled Sauce Here)

My family loves chicken teriyaki. I’ve made chicken teriyaki with store-bought teriyaki sauce, but I find that homemade teriyaki is much better. This teriyaki chicken recipe allows me to make it homemade quickly and easily. Win-win!

Boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces are quickly stir fried in a skillet or wok before a flavorful sauce is added in. The easy teriyaki sauce is made with low-sodium soy sauce, water, honey, light brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, minced garlic, fresh ginger and cornstarch. The cornstarch helps thicken the sauce after it is added to the hot skillet with the chicken.

Serve this chicken stir fry with white rice, brown rice, fried rice, Asian noodles or even quinoa. Pack up the leftovers for lunch the next day. This 20-minute, one-pan chicken dinner is perfect for meal prepping, too.

Recipe Notes

  • You could use boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts.
  • You could use tamari instead of low-sodium soy sauce.
  • Store the chicken in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and let brown on bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes, then flip and continue to cook about 3 minutes longer, or until center temperature reaches about 160 degrees F.
  2. While chicken is cooking, in a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, water, honey, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and cornstarch.
  3. Add the sauce in with the cooked chicken and stir. Continue to cook and toss until sauce has thickened, about 60 seconds. Garnish with sesame seeds.
