Juicy, tender chicken in an amazing sweet gingery sauce. This sauce is better than any store-bought teriyaki and is so easy to make at home while still feeling like you got takeout. What I love about this recipe is it reminds me of weekends Drew and I would order take out (usually chicken & vegetables over a big bowl of rice) and curl up on our couch watching an episode of Gilmore Girls. We both love a good sauce-y chicken with lots of vegetables over rice or quinoa.

  • Oil

  • Coconut sugar
  • Sesame oil
  • Corn starch
  • Ginger
  • Garlic

How To Make Teriyaki Chicken

  1. First, heat a cast-iron skillet or pan on medium heat, brown chicken in oil until cooked on all sides and slightly crisp. 
  2. After whisking teriyaki ingredients into a glass jar, pour over browned chicken and stir in pan for 1 to 2 minutes. Sauce will thicken and absorb into chicken. 
  3. Then, stir in steamed broccoli with chicken and teriyaki sauce.
