This healthy One Pan Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Vegetables is made with a simple homemade teriyaki sauce, tender chicken thighs, and tons of veggies for a delicious dinner that's ready in about 30 minutes.
I have a serious addiction to teriyaki sauce. For about three years immediately following college my idea of making dinner was throwing rice and veggies in a bowl and covering it with a combination of store bought teriyaki sauce and Sriracha. Sometimes there was also some rotisserie chicken if it was a special meal.
However as I get older, I have come to realize that there is a ton of high fructose corn syrup and unnecessary additives in most store bought teriyaki sauce so I prefer to make my own at home. It's still high in sodium from the soy sauce, kind of impossible to avoid in teriyaki sauce, but it is much lower in sugar and has no unnecessary extras. Plus with the fresh ginger and garlic, I think it tastes even better than the store bought stuff.
One of my favorite things to make with this homemade teriyaki sauce is this One Pan Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Vegetables. It couldn't be easier and there is minimal clean up since everything is cooked on one large sheet pan. Depending on how hungry I am, I like to serve it with cauliflower rice, brown rice, or rice noodles. And if you want to mix things up, consider adding some fresh pineapple to the dish as well - delish.
