How to make this dinner

This is an easy recipe to make! For the full set of directions, please scroll down to the recipe card below.

Make the teriyaki sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic cloves, cornstarch, and ginger until combined.
  2. Place the saucepan on the stovetop and turn it onto medium heat.
  3. Bring to a simmer, whisking quite frequently.
  4. Continue whisking frequently until the sauce has thickened.
  5. Divide the sauce in half, one half for cooking and one half for dipping.

Bake the meal

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a rimmed baking sheet (affiliate link) with parchment paper.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Place the chicken in the center of the prepared baking sheet.
  4. In a medium bowl, toss together the broccoli, baby carrots and sliced onion with ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil, salt and pepper, and 3 Tablespoons of the teriyaki sauce. Toss to combine.
  5. Nestle the seasoned veggies around the chicken so it is in one even layer and spaced out as nicely as you can.
  6. Drizzle some of the teriyaki sauce over the chicken, being careful not to contaminate the remaining sauce with raw chicken.
  7. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes,  or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F.
  8. Allow the meal to rest for 5 minutes before slicing the chicken and serving.

*Recipe Note: If your children prefer their veggies to have more bite/crunch to them instead of being softer, cook the chicken by itself  for 10 minutes, and then add the veggies for the remaining 15-20 minutes.

Prepping ahead of time

This is a great meal to prepare ahead of time. 

  • You can prepare the sauce ahead of time and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days before use.
  • The meal itself can be baked ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave until warmed.
  • If you are short on time, you can either make your rice ahead of time or use the microwave pouches of premade rice.

How to serve this to your family

Serve the chicken and veggies in a bowl over rice, with more teriyaki sauce on the side for dipping.

For younger children, serve on a plate with everything cut up into smaller bites in individual piles, and a small container of dipping sauce on the side.
