Looking to spice up dinner and quick? Try this one pan chicken teriyaki!
Hey friends! I am so very excited to share this one pan recipe with yall today. It has quickly become a favorite in the Grant house. Like total favorite. I was testing this chicken teriyaki while Ryon was out of town for work and told him about it. He was pumped. He came home and searched the fridge for leftover chicken teriyaki. But.. there wasn’t any. I had eaten it all! Well, my mom helped too. But it was mostly me. I ate it.
I felt bad. Sorta. I mean I mentioned I was making it but never really said I was saving any. Is that horrible? It is. Its bad. So I made it again that same weekend. That way no one was sad and I had chicken teriyaki twice. Wooo!!
Of course the time I make it to photograph to share – I run out of sesame seeds! But that’s ok because with or without them this one pan recipe is absolutely delicious. Did I mention it was one pan? I did? Perfect. Because the less dishes there are to do after the meal, the better the meal tastes. Am I right?! Or is that just me?!
But seriously, one pan. I cooked the chicken first, set it aside, made the teriyaki sauce in the same pan and then added the chicken back. And all in record time. Because I don’t have time to wait for good food! (Ain’t nobody got time for that!)
Add a side of rice and veggies or eat it plain. Or toss it in a taco shell. You can literally do anything with this chicken teriyaki. Just don’t except leftovers because it tends to disappear!
