During the busy school year, easy meals one pot meals with minimal prep time are an absolute necessity. As much as I would love to whip up a fancy meal on a regular basis, having two little ones who are overly active just doesn’t allow it.
So one pot and sheet pan dinners (Lemon Herb Chicken or Sheet Pan Teriyaki) are seriously the ones I turn to the most when I don’t have a ton of time to prep. They make clean-up a breeze and are perfect for busy weeknights. Toss in your choice of veggies and protein and you’ve got one simple and delicious meal!
This One Pan Teriyaki Chicken is one of my very favorite meals to make.
Just line a sheet pan with some foil or parchment paper and toss the chicken into the oven. My favorite part? Totally that sweet and sticky homemade teriyaki sauce.
If you’re in a pinch, you can absolutely use a store-bought one. But this sauce is just SO easy and tastes much better. I used the same base as my Teriyaki Chicken Caesar Salad, Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki and my Orange Teriyaki Salmon.
Once the chicken is almost cooked up, add the veggies to the pan and toss it back into the oven for a few more minutes. By adding the broccoli and carrots near the end, it helps the chicken stay nice and tender. And the veggies roast up caramelized and crispy.
My family absolutely loves anything with a sweet, tangy and savory combination so we always save some extra sauce for drizzling.
