Equipment

  • Sheet Pan
  • small pot

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts about 1.5 lbs total, cut into 1.5" cubes
  • 3 cups broccoli florets

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds optional

Topping

  • green onion chopped for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 F. Add cubed chicken and broccoli to sheet pan.
  • (Skip if using premade teriyaki sauce). Combine 2 Tbsp cold water and 2 Tbsp corn starch in a small bowl and set aside. Heat a small pot on high heat and add soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, brown sugar, and sesame seeds. Add corn starch mixture and heat until the sauce boils and the sauce is thick (about 5 minutes)
  • Drizzle half (about 1/2 cup) of the sauce over the chicken and broccoli in the pan and toss. Bake for 25 minutes or until chicken internal temperature reaches at least 165 F. Add more sauce to the pan (about 1/4 cup) and mix. Plate over rice and add more sesame seeds and green onion if desired. Drizzle remaining teriyaki sauce on top if desired. Enjoy!

Picture this: It’s a weekday and you’re pretty tired from work, but still want a warm, homemade meal. Maybe you’re also running around to kid sports or evening meetings, or just don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking (dinner almost never takes me more than 45 minutes to put together!)

Enter this Broccoli Chicken Teriyaki sheet pan meal! It’s seriously so delicious, satisfying and filling. Did I mention it only takes about 35 minutes to make? This could even be less if you use a premade teriyaki sauce/marinade.

Chicken Breast: Just pat to remove extra moisture, cube, and they’re ready to be added to the sheet pan!

Broccoli Florets: I love using the bags of pre-cut, pre-washed florets. It makes this sheet pan meal even easier.

Teriyaki Sauce: We have 2 options here with using a pre-made teriyaki sauce or making your own at home. If you get store bought, opt for a thicker, marinade option.

Toppings: Extra sesame seeds, sauce, and green onion? Yes please!

Rice: This isn’t in the recipe, but made separately, can be a delicious grain base for the Broccoli Chicken Teriyaki. We need our carbs, guys!

Honestly, I say do whatever you prefer and/or is easier for you! If you have the premade marinade on hand, it can make things pretty simple. Sometimes I don’t, but I have the ingredients to make it. It is somewhat simple to throw together, but sometimes a few more steps is a no-go. I get it!

Broccoli Chicken Teriyaki Close Up

  • Considering convenience in a meal (like using the premade teriyaki sauce) is part of what helps cooking at home be sustainable long-term!
  • When a recipe doesn’t have a carb/grain source included, let’s add to it. In this case, we talked about adding rice!
