This Teriyaki Chicken is my skillet version of the Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken recipe I shared a few months ago. Sometimes I don’t want to or forget to set my slow cooker so the quick skillet option is great to have. This dish is as easy in prep as it’s slow cooker version and most likely you have all of the ingredients on hand.
Baked Teriyaki Salmon is as fast and easy to make and absolutely delicious!
Honey Lemon Chicken Rice Bowls - the sweet sauce is irresistible!

This was delicious! Husband and I loved it. Like someone mentioned above I’ve tried numerous Asian dishes on Pinterest and this is the first we liked. My husband even asked that i make it to send him to work with for lunches. I’ll be freezing some for my meal prep and his lunches. Thank you so much.
Tried this for the first time today Anna, is fabulous & will be a staple in our household.
I am so glad it was a hit, Mary! Thank you so much!
This dish was absolutely delicious and easy to make. I did not have corn starch or flour so I used instant mash substitute. I also did not have ground ginger or apple cider vinegar so I just left it out. My sauce ended up being a tiny bit thick but so good.
Hi Alicia! That's awesome! Good to know about the instant mash substitute. Ground ginger is optional but adds great flavor. You can use lemon juice in place of apple cider vinegar. Hope this helps!

So I want to make this, but I do not have cornstarch. Anything else I could use?
You can substitute the cornstarch with flour. You will need 3 tablespoons of flour for every tablespoon of cornstarch. You will also need to heat it in it's own sauce pan and cook it for a bit to get rid of the flour taste.
Super yummy flavor and easy peasy! I used a bag of stir fry veggies since I didn’t have broccoli. The only change I would make is triple the sauce if you like extra sauce to top the rice. . I doubled it and it’s its still not enough. But will absolutely make this again.
Hi Cindy! Yay! That's fantastic! I use stir fry veggie mix all the time too. So easy! Thank you for trying the recipe!

Good morning Anna!!
Can this dish be frozen and used in a meal prep plan?
Hi Juanita! YES! It's great for freezing and a lot of our readers use it as a part of their meal prep. I hope this helps!
I just discovered that I am out of ready-made Teriyaki sauce.
So i tried this recipe. I am surprised how great it is....... I am sure I will never again use ready-made sauce anymore.
My only question: How to make it little more glazey? If we add more sugar, there is a risk of getting too sweet. What other option for this?
Great recipe! I accidentally used dark brown sugar, but it still tasted delish!! I think I am going to switch it up and use green beans or snap peas next time 🙂
Do you have an instagram?
Hi Crystal! Thank you so much for giving this recipe a try. I am so glad you enjoyed it! Love the idea of using green beans and snap peas. Delicious! You can follow me at @crunchycreamysweet on Instagram. 😀
We loved this recipe! So easy and so good! Thank you!
Thank you so much, Nina!
How long can I leave this in the fridge for?
Hi Dori! I recommend no longer than 2 days. Hope this helps! -Anna
My kid loved this!
Tami M. says
This was amazing and I will be making it again and again. Instead of having broccoli with it, I steamed sugar snap peas and added them to the chicken. So good. I used regular vinegar, cause it's what I had on hand.
Hi Tami! I am so happy to know you enjoyed this dish! Thank you for trying it and for letting me know. Have a beautiful week! -Anna
I've tried several recipes for Asian dishes on Pinterest, etc. and this is the FIRST one that my husband has liked! I left out the ginger (I've learned from the other recipes that he doesn't like it) and increased the ingredients for the sauce. With the broccoli and rice we had enough for leftovers and he said it tasted even better the 2nd night! 🙂
Thought you would like to know! Thanks for the recipe...easy and tasty!

EASY PEASY and OMG...SOOOOO DELICIOUS.
I used honey instead of sugar.
Tossed the broccoli in the sauce and served it over pineapple rice.
Thanks for sharing this genius recipe.
Love, love, love this recipe! So did my very picky eaters. Thanks for sharing.
I dont have any ginger. Will this matter?also...how would i make enough for 6 people. Would i just double the entire recipe to be safe?
Hi Tiffany! Feel free to skip the ginger. The dish will still be delicious! As far as doubling, you should be good to go. Let me know if you make it and how you like it! Have a beautiful weekend! -Anna
Do you have any recipes for shrimp?
Hi Sally! I do not have any on my blog but I think shrimp would work great in this recipe. Let me know if you try it! Have a beautiful week! -Anna
Can I use honey instead of sugar?
Hi Jessica! Yes! It will be amazing with honey too! Have a beautiful week! -Anna
The calories mentioned - are those per serving of chicken, the whole chicken dish or for the chicken/rice/broccoli per serving? Thanks! My family loves this recipe!
Hi Sarah! The calorie count is for the chicken and sauce. Thank you for trying this recipe! I am so happy to know you and your family love it! 😀 Have a beautiful weekend! -Anna
Could I use flour if I don't have Corn starch? Or will the flour taste be too strong for this dish?
For the ingredients it says 2tbsp rice or apple cider vinegar, so I can use 2tbsp of uncooked rice?
Hi Mandy! No, no. It means you can use either rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar. Serve the finished dish with cooked rice. Hope this helps. -Anna
I just tried this and shared with my family and they not only loved the taste, but the way the house smelled, too! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Hi Hannah! Thank you so much for the comment! I am so happy to know you and your family love this recipe. Yay! Have a beautiful week! -Anna
