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.
- soy sauce
- Heat up a large pan to a medium/high heat and sauté the mushrooms and onions until the onions are translucent. (Photo 1)
- Add the rest of the veggies and sauté for about 5 minutes. (Photo 2)
- While the veggies are cooking, make the teriyaki sauce. Mix the soy sauce, water, mirin, honey, garlic and ginger. (Photo 3)
- Add the sauce and sauté for another 3-5 minutes - until the chicken is cooked and the vegetables are done to your preference. (Photo 4)
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.

I had a hot BBQ chook (ok, chicken for all you non-Aussies!) so did it all and then added the pulled poultry just prior to serving.. It was absolutely totally delicious and have shared the recipe with vegan grand-daughter. Thanks heaps for a new idea with our favourite flesh.

Hi Janet! Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback - we are happy you enjoyed the recipe!:)
Simple, but delicious. The cabbage is almost like noodles - love it!
This recipe sounds incredible, but when you mention, "6 servings", what size is the serving?
Roche Woodworth says
Hi Lin! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. In my experience, one serving was just about 2 cups per person. Hope that clears things up for you. Let me know how it turns out if you do give it a try! 🙂
