This is an easy one pan recipe for a Healthy Chicken Teriyaki dish. It needs simple ingredients and barely 30 minutes to throw together. Keto. Low-Carb. Gluten-Free. Paleo.
A healthy chicken teriyaki is quite easy to make. Most of the ingredients are clean, it’s usually the sauce that’s the problem with store-bought or restaurant dishes.
This recipe has a DIY simple and healthy teriyaki sauce with minimal ingredients. If you don’t include soy sauce in your diet, feel free to substitute with coconut aminos for an equally delicious sauce.

It depends on your ingredients. If you’re making a healthy chicken stir fry from scratch and using whole ingredients, then it can be very good for you! Home-cooked is best.
Once again, it depends on the ingredients. If you’re buying store-bought sauce, make sure to read the label so you understand what’s going into your body.
A great option is coconut rice (if you’re not doing keto or low-carb). Sautéed greens also work well. You can ever serve this healthy chicken teriyaki on some noodles.
