Teriyaki chicken with vegetables dish is full of flavor and a family favorite. Even those picky palates are sure to eat their protein and veggies. 

 

Teriyaki chicken and vegetables is a delicious dinner that’s full of flavor. In fact, it’s often one of my go-to meals because it can be cooked all in one pan on the stovetop and it cooks fairly quickly. Less dishes means a quicker clean up, and I can always get behind that.

 

Is chicken breast healthy?

Chicken breast is an excellent source of lean protein. It’s also high in selenium, an essential mineral involved in metabolic performance. It has little saturated fat and contains B vitamins.

 

What veggies are good with teriyaki chicken?

Broccoli, bell peppers, thinly sliced onions, carrots, mushrooms, snow peas or even greens like spinach and cabbage.

To start, in a large skillet, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil. Then, add the chicken and carrots and cook stirring occasionally until the carrots are almost tender, which is about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. While the chicken is cooking, place the broccoli in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 6-7 minutes. Depending on how strong your microwave is you may need less time.

 

Add the Teriyaki sauce (amount varies by your preference, but I used the whole bottle) to the chicken and carrots and stir for about 1-2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Then, turn the heat off and add the broccoli and pepper flakes if you want some spice. Stir to combine everything together.

 

This teriyaki chicken is a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies!
