Easy Homemade Teriyaki Chicken

In our home we like to have themed food nights. For example, Tuesdays are always Taco Tuesday.

Monday’s are for Japanese foods and this past Monday we made Easy Teriyaki Chicken that is delicious and did not disappoint us on our themed night.

Any time we can make themed nights at home it’s a win. We save money and can enjoy cooking our favorite recipes right in our kitchen.

If you are looking for a delicious recipe that calls for Teriyaki sauce, you’ll want to try this!

Easy Teriyaki Chicken

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Teriyaki Sauce (we used this homemade recipe)
  • Asparagus 
  • Onion
  • Green Onion
  • Sesame Seeds
  • White Rice
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

How to make this easy teriyaki chicken recipe:

Start by making your homemade teriyaki sauce. You can certainly use store bought but since we are going for homemade here, I made my own using this recipe.

Next, cook your white rice and set aside.

Now, blanch your asparagus. This is the perfect way to make asparagus by boiling for 3-4 min then put in ice water and set aside.

Next, sauté chicken with oil salt and pepper. I sliced my chicken into thin slices so it’d help cook faster and it’s easier to eat when cooked.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Add a drizzle of oil and caramelize the onion, garlic and ginger.

Add in your asparagus and chicken to get it all nice and hot.

Add your homemade teriyaki sauce and turn down the heat. You want to toss ingredients in sauce and get them all nice and hot.

Put teriyaki chicken and veggies over rice and top off with sesame seeds and green onions.

Enjoy!
