Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables – Time for Take-out at Home!

This Teriyaki chicken with vegetables is an Asian inspired dish that I love to make at home. It’s one of my favorite 30 minute meals!

I used to be a huge fan of takeaway Chinese food.  Lately, though, I have not enjoyed it as much as I used to.  I don’t know if it is that I ate a lot of it, or whether it really is just not that good.

The sauces seem too thick and rich tasting for my tastes now. But Chinese food at home is another story. I make it all the time and love it. 

This tasty dish is one of my favorite one pot meals. Other than the rice, everything comes together in one pan to give great layers of flavor to the recipe.

This teriyaki chicken with vegetables stirfry is easy to make and just full of flavor. Perfect for a busy weeknight.

Ingredients for teriyaki

Combine the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce and set aside.  
Teriyaki sauce
The first step is to cook your chicken, celery, and carrots in toasted sesame oil over a medium high heat until the chicken is no longer pink and the veggies are almost tender.

Cook the chicken, carrots and celery

While they are cooking, add the broccoli to the microwave and cook a couple of minutes until it is just starting to get tender. You could also just add them to the pan but it will increase the cooking time a bit.

Now add the broccoli to the chicken and veggies and stir in the teriyaki sauce. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken and everything is well incorporated.

The recipe is great on its on, but if you want to make it more hearty, pour the mixture over some cooked rice or noodles.  I like using my chopsticks, until I just can’t manage them any more. Enjoy!Teriyaki chicken and vegetables
