One Pot Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe – One pot and about 30 minutes are all you will need for this effortless, yet amazing Teriyaki Chicken recipe.
😍 I may never go back to simple, ol’ plain baked chicken.
Hi-ya! Happy Friday!! Hope everyone is well!
I haven’t had a chance to tell you about my trip BACK from Punta Cana. Let me just say that traveling with kids is SO much fun!! 😬 🔨 😭 Why didn’t you warn me?!?
Secondly, cancelling our returning flight due to weather conditions? I was ready to knock somebody out! Unlike the East Coast, Chicago had very little snow and all other flights FROM and TO Chi-town were up in the friendly skies. Third, it took nearly 24 hours of travel for us to get back home… Obvi, I have a bone to pick with United Airlines. ALWAYS.
Buuuuut. Back to priorities; One Pot Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe. Holla!
If you haven’t figured it out by now, the way to my heart is through baked chicken in ONE pot. Newsflash!
Let me just get real for a second, though: the amount of excuses I’ve concocted in my head that would make it reasonable to order Asian-anything-takeout is nothing short of horrifying and brilliant. I mean, NO ONE can make a General Tso’s Chicken like the food court people at the mall. No one. Or a Teriyaki Chicken, for that matter! 🙈 <I’m so TOTALLY kidding>
Nevertheless, it’s a whole lot faster than making it at home. AND no cleanup. Cleanup is my nightmare. I love to cook and bake, but washing all the pots and pans afterwards? UGH!
Thuuuuus. Enter ONE POT meals!
Now, I realize that this preparation method is nowhere near the authentic way to prepare Teriyaki Chicken. I know. However, THIS Asian-inspired one-pot Teriyaki Chicken gets on the table in about 30 minutes, leaving you with only one pot/pan/dish to wash because your family is eating dinner on paper plates. It’s Friday – we can do that.
If you want to be super basic like me, you will forego the bottled teriyaki sauce and reach for STAR’s Natural Rice Vinegar, some low-sodium soy sauce, and honey. Buhlieve and be like ME!
The tender chicken cooks up perfectly in this silky homemade sauce. The sweet, salty, acidic, and delicious flavors from the rice vinegar will make you want to pour the sauce in a wine glass and drink it up. STAR’s Natural Rice Vinegar is low in sodium, fat free, cholesterol free, trans fat free, low carb and gluten free! One more bonus? Rice Vinegar increases insulin sensitivity in diabetic treatment and reduces damage to nerves from elevated blood sugar levels. That’s what I call *awesome-sauce*!
This is one of those dishes that works perfectly on it’s own with a side of salad, but would reeeeeally benefit from a mound of fluffy rice. ♥
