Lately, I am all about the quick, easy dinners and even better if they are not as messy which means I want less pots and pans and dishes to wash. I also love that for this sheet pan chicken recipe I can use my own homemade teriyaki sauce or if I’m feeling really lazy, I mean running out of time I can use store-bought sauce.

Like this bottled teriyaki sauce is found on Amazon and in many grocery stores and does the trick. Although when you see how easy and tasty my homemade teriyaki sauce is you’ll want to use that which is what I always end up doing even when I complain about being tired. sheet pan chickenSheet pan meals are fabulous for those nights when you don’t have a lot of time to prep and want to get dinner on the table stat. This makes them perfect for those busy nights and I love that you can just toss in any veggies you like or whatever you have on hand. Which is exactly what I did when I made this baked teriyaki chicken.

sheet pan chicken teriyaki with broccoli, zucchini and pineappleI didn’t go out and buy specific vegetables for this sheet pan chicken dinner. I looked in the fridge and pulled out what I had which in this case was broccoli and zucchini. I wasn’t sure about the zucchini at first but then thought what the heck. I also had some fresh pineapple and though hmm teriyaki and pineapple sounds good, add bit a of spice with chilis and we had a tangy slightly spicy dish. It was delicious. You can of course have it without any hot spice, I kept it mild as I’m the only one who can do really spicy. I just like sweet & tangy with spicy.sheet pan chicken teriyaki on rice

What Other Vegetables Can be Baked with this Bake Chicken Teriyaki?

These are just some of my favourite vegetables to have with this sheet pan chicken teriyaki but really you can add any vegetable that you and your family like to eat. 

  • Snap Peas/Snow Peas
  • Green Beans
  • Any Colour of Bell Peppers
  • Bok Choy
  • Mushrooms
  • Water Chestnuts
  • Not a vegetable but you can also add cashews, almonds or peanuts

sheet pan chicken teriyaki One thing that is important to me when I make any chicken recipe is that I look for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo (pictured below). If you’ve checked out any of my other chicken recipes then you know I say this every time but it’s always worth repeating. This logo is important to us because we know then we’re getting quality chicken, ethically raised without hormones.

chicken farmers of Canada

One of the many reasons we insist on buying chicken with this logo is that Canadian chicken farmers adhere to a strict, mandatory & auditable Animal Care Program to ensure high animal care standards are being upheld. I believe very strongly in having high standards for the treatment of the animals.

This goes hand in hand in my opinion with Canadian chicken farmers adhering to a strict mandatory On-Farm Food Safety Program. After all we all want quality but it’s also important that their are high standards for the treatment of the animals. sheet pan chicken teriyaki served on rice

How Do You Make Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken 

For the Teriyaki Sauce

Add the water, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger to a sauce pan and put on simmer. In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch and water. Once it thickens, add to the pan. Whisk occasionally and keep the heat low-med until the sauce thickens.baked chicken teriyaki sheet pan chicken

For the chicken and vegetables

  1. As the sauce is thickening, preheat the oven to 400° and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the cubed chicken in a bowl to coat with just enough sauce to cover everything. Spread the chicken across the sheet pan evenly and make sure the pieces aren’t overlapping. Roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Coat the cut vegetables lightly in oil (I used vegetable oil). Once the chicken has roasted for 20 minutes, take the sheet pan out of the oven. Disperse the vegetables, pineapple and jalapeno slices evenly across the pan and avoid overlapping. Put back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. 
  4. Take the sheet pan out of the oven and coat everything with the teriyaki sauce. Serve and enjoy!

Can I Prepare Teriyaki Chicken Ahead of Time?

Yes! In fact, this recipe is even better when you let the chicken and vegetables absorb the tasty teriyaki flavours. You can put it in the fridge for 24-48 hours after cooking it. Depending on what vegetables I used I usually like to warm it up in a pan over the stove to crisp up the vegetables.  After preparing it ahead of time you will want to leave it in the refrigerator overnight. I would recommend baking it within 24-48 hours of preparing it.

What Do You Serve with Teriyaki Chicken?

You can serve this sheet pan chicken over white rice, jasmine rice, brown rice, quinoa or have it with just the vegetables which is something I do all the time when I want to cut down on carbs.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

This Baked Teriyaki Chicken is a deliciously easy sheet pan chicken dinner with homemade teriyaki sauce and for a bit of tangy sweetness some pineapple with a touch of spiciness. It's a perfect easy weeknight meal! Make sure to check out our cooking tips, tasty optional toppings

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs of chicken, cubed one inch pieces
  • 2 cups of pineapple (optional)
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 2 cups zucchini
  • 1 red jalapeno (optional)

Teriyaki Sauce

  •  1 cup water
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 5 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch + ¾ cup water

Instructions

  1. To make the teriyaki sauce, add the water, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger to a sauce pan and put on simmer. In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch and water. Once it thickens, add to the pan. Whisk occasionally and keep the heat low-med until the sauce thickens.
  2. As the sauce is thickening, preheat the oven to 400° and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  3. Cube the chicken into 1-inch pieces and then gently toss in a bowl to coat with just enough sauce to cover everything. Spread the chicken across the sheet pan evenly and make sure the pieces aren’t overlapping. Roast for 20 minutes.
  4. While the chicken is roasting, cut the broccoli, zucchini and pineapple into ½ - 1-inch sized pieces. Slice the jalapeno thinly and remove the seeds (or if you like very spicy dishes, keep some. The more seeds used, the more spicy the meal will be). Coat the broccoli and zucchini lightly in oil.
  5. Once the chicken has roasted for 20 minutes, take the sheet pan out of the oven. Disperse the vegetables, pineapple and jalapeno slices evenly across the pan and avoid overlapping. Put back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Optional: After the 10 minutes has passed, broil on high for an additional minute for a crispy effect.
  7. Take the sheet pan out of the oven and coat everything with the teriyaki sauce. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

You can use any vegetables you like. Check out the notes in our post for some of the vegetables that we like.

You don't need to coat the vegetables in the teriyaki sauce, this will make them soggy if you do. They will get enough flavour from being on the pan with the chicken.

Serve over your favourite type of rice, quinoa or have it as is.

You can top with cashews, almonds or peanuts, if you do add them when you add the vegetables but add them last.

You can also add sesame seeds after you take the chicken out of the oven.

  1. I cut my chicken into about 1″ cubes, 20 minutes roasting and then another 10 with the veggies was a bit too long I think, the chicken was slightly dried out. However, the sauce was delicious! I will be making it again but just adjusting the time to my chicken’s needs. Thank you for such a tasty recipe. It’s definitely going to be a weekly go-to.

    • Thanks for sharing Nikki. Yes everyone may need to adjust a bit as there’s so many variables from the type of chicken, how thick it is to varying degrees of ovens, everyone’s oven can be different for sure. Glad you like the sauce 🙂

  3. The chicken teriyaki looks really good. I never have any of that handy in my house but (normally) easy to pick up. Thanks.

  4. I like making a chicken pot pie using phyllo dough for the crust. I have used fresh vegetables with chicken breast I cut in chunks and cook. If I am in a rush I use frozen veggies. We also like using chicken to make fajitas.

  5. My husband and daughter love Chicken Divan – I’ve made a few adjustments to my recipe, and its become a weeknight staple!

  6. I love to just bake or bbq my chicken. I marinate it in italian dressing and spice it with garlic and Smokehouse Maple seasoning. Make sure not to overcook. Just cook until meat loses its pink colour when pierced. Also love making chicken stew and always add barley and summer savoury to it.

  7. My great aunt makes a very cheap and simple chicken dish using dry mustard. It’s one of my favourites that I need to look up the recipe for. The chicken is always flavourful and tender.

  8. Chicken, whole. Celery, carrots, onions. A bit of seasoning. A basic chicken soup/broth good for other meals or just drinking by itself.
