One Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken makes the perfect easy weeknight meal. Best of all, this recipe is made entirely on one sheet pan with tender chicken, crispy vegetables and a delicious sweet and tangy Asian sauce. Plus recipe video.
During the busy school year, easy one pot meals with minimal prep time are an absolute necessity.
So Instant Pot dinners (like this Instant Pot Rice) and sheet pan dinners (Lemon Herb Chicken or Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon) are seriously the ones I turn to the most when I don’t have a ton of time to prep.
This One Pan Teriyaki Chicken is on regular rotation around here. It’s an amazingly flavorful sheet pan meal and one our very favorites.
Clean-up a breeze and it’s just perfect for busy weeknights. Simply toss in your choice of veggies and protein and you’ve got one simple and delicious meal!
HOW DO YOU MAKE ONE PAN TERIYAKI CHICKEN?
- Start by lining a sheet pan with some foil or parchment paper and toss the chicken into the oven.
- Whisk together the homemade sweet and sticky 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.
- 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.
WHAT OTHER VEGETABLES CAN I USE FOR THIS SHEET PAN MEAL?
I used broccoli, carrots, edamame but red bell peppers, snap peas, green beans or cauliflower would be delicious here as well.

One Pan Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables
For the Teriyaki sauce
- 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 4-5 tablespoons honey use a low carb sweetener for keto
- 5 tablespoons rice wine vinegar OR apple cider vinegear for keto
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil plus more for drizzling on vegetables (leave out for keto)
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 3/4 teaspoon grated or ground ginger
- 1 /2 tablespoon cornstarch 1 teaspoon xantham gum for keto
- 4 tablespoons water
For the Chicken and Vegetables
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into even halves, lengthwise (about 1 1/2 pounds)
- 3 cups broccoli florets about 2 bunches
- 1 cup sliced carrots
Additional vegetables (optional)
- 1/4 cup edamame beans 1/4 cup pineapple chunks
- Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish
For the sauce:
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, cornstarch and water until combined. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles. Remove from heat and set aside.
For the chicken and vegetables:
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a large sheet pan with cooking spray or for easier clean-up - line pan with parchment paper or foil, set aside.
- Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and black pepper then drizzle 1-2 spoonfuls of glaze over each piece, coating well on both sides. Reserve at least half of the glaze for later.
- Cook in preheated oven about 10 minutes then remove the pan from oven. Top chicken with additional glaze, flip chicken and glaze again.
- Arrange the broccoli florets, carrots, edamame and pineapple (if using) in a single layer around the chicken. Season with black pepper and drizzle with ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil and teriyaki glaze and toss to coat. Return to the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. (If chicken is not done after 20 minutes, remove vegetables from pan first to prevent overcooking then return the chicken back to the oven until cooked through.)
- Remove pan from oven, slice chicken into strips and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve over rice or quinoa and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.
