Sheet pan meals are the ones I turn to the most when I don’t have a ton of time to prep before dinner starts.

Enjoy it alone or serve it over your favorite rice or quinoa. Either way, you choose, it will be so much easier and healthier than takeout!

What you Need for Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables

Most of the ingredients are for the sauce, making your own teriyaki sauce is the best way to get the most flavor. Its easy to make so keep it this recipe on hand to use in other recipes like stir fry.

  • Low sodium soy sauce: This umami sauce creates the base for the teriyaki sauce. It’s a must.
  • Honey: How much you add will depend on how sweet you like it.
  • Rice wine vinegar: This tangy zingy vinegar is a bit milder than apple and goes perfectly in the sauce.
  • Sesame oilThis is a finishing oil, so it will go perfectly as drizzle over the vegetables too.
  • Garlic cloves: Mince the garlic so it will release the flavor.
  • Grated ginger: Use fresh ginger for the best punch of flavor.
  • Cornstarch: Thickener for the sauce.
  • Water: You will mix this with the cornstarch so it will dissolve.
  • Salt and black pepper: to taste
  • Skinless chicken breasts: cut in half lengthwise (about 1 ½ pounds)
  • Broccoli florets: about 2 bunches
  • Sliced carrots: Use big carrots that you cut yourself, they will be more flavorful than baby carrots.
  • Additional vegetables: Add the vegetables your family will eat, see below for ideas.
  • Edamame beans and pineapple chunks: The pineapple chunks create a nice sweetness to the savory.
  • Green onions and sesame seeds: This optional for garnish but tasty.

How To Make Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables

This recipe is going to be easy and fast. Its savory, delicious, and divine.

  • Sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, cornstarch and water until combined. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the chicken and vegetables

  1. Prepare: Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil coated with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Chicken: Season each side of the chicken with salt and black pepper then drizzle spoonfuls of glaze over the chicken coating well on both sides. Reserve at least half of the glaze for later.
  3. Bake: Cook in preheated oven for 20 minutes then remove the pan. Top chicken with additional glaze, flip chicken and glaze again.
  4. Add Vegetables: Arrange the broccoli florets, carrots, edamame and pineapples in a single layer around the chicken. Season with black pepper and drizzle with ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil and teriyaki glaze and toss to coat. Return to the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.**
  5. Serve: Remove pan from oven, slice chicken into strips and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve over rice or quinoa and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.

Tips For Teriyaki Sheet Pan Chicken

This is one of the easiest ways to feed your family. You are going to love how fast this is to make.

  • Chicken: This recipe calls for chicken breasts but you can use chicken thighs. The chicken breasts should be the same size and thickness so that they cook evenly.
  • Prep Ahead of Time: This is a great recipe to even marinade the ingredients in the sauce for that added flavor. 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.
  • Meal Planning: This is a great way to have a healthy meal each day! I love meal plans and being able to enjoy them just by microwaving them up for a few minutes and have a delicious meal each day that is healthy and filling. On Sunday I love to prepare this sheet pan meal and divide it into 4 to 6 air-tight containers that I will store in the refrigerator. Each day I will open one up and microwave for about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir it up, then about 2 more minutes in the microwave. You do not want to overheat the chicken or it is too firm. If that chicken already feels warm after the first 3 to 4 minutes adjust the time so it is not overheated in the microwave.

What to Serve with Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken

I love a good rice to mix in with the vegetables and Teriyaki chicken. White rice, jasmine rice, brown rice or even wild rice work really well for this meal. Because you have a protein and vegetables all together you only need some fruit and dessert. Here are some ideas.

  • Cauliflower
  • Green Beans
  • Green, Red and Yellow Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Snap Peas

  1. This recipe was overall very tasty but I would add maybe a 1/4 cup brown sugar to the glaze next time as I like a sweeter teriyaki and this was pretty salty for my liking, but this was a super easy concept that i will use again!

  2. 5 stars
    This was delicious – I am not a skillful cook in the kitchen, and even I could make this and make it well! The sauce/glaze was delicious and the chicken came out well – I used thin cut chicken breasts so I skipped the first round of baking. I boiled the carrot slices a bit before baking and that helped them come out soft and perfect. I ate this for six days in a row and was sad when it was gone! I will be making this way more often! I quartered the glaze recipe to cook leftover veggies I had that were about to go bad. What a find! Thanks!

  3. This sounds delicious. I am wondering whether the chicken breasts could be cut into strips and combined with the veggies in a bowl, then coated with the teriyaki sauce prior to baking. I guess it might be tricky to add that second coat of sauce if I did it that way, though.

  4. 5 stars
    Fantastic recipe! I added sliced red pepper, omitted pineapple, & used 2 T. orange blossom honey and 1 T. of creamy honey – I was out of regular – and boy was it yummy! FTW ?

  5. 3 stars
    I am making this for the 2nd time tonight, and just like the first time, the glaze is scorching during the first cook cycle- has anyone else has issues like this? I love the ease of the recipe, but not the smell of scorched teriyaki!

    1. After the first cook cycle, I changed out the foil for a new sheet. Also, coated chicken 2nd time on dish before putting on new foil. Tossed the veggies with sauce in a bow before adding to sheet pan.

  6. This looks great! Do you think it can be made with pre-made teriyaki marinade, or is it best to make it per the recipe? Thank you!

    1. I have found the best way to get nutritional info on all of the recipes is through MyFitnessPal.com. You just type in the recipe and it tells you! Skinnytaste.com is also a great resource for healthy and delicious meals and provides nutritional info. Hope this helps! XOXO

    This dinner is YUMMY! Even my pickiest eater had some! I enjoy a lot of your sheet pan dinners. Thanks for sharing with us!!

    This was delicious! Great glaze! And we used snow peas for edamame. So much easier to throw everything in the oven like this, thanks!!!

  9. Hi I wondered if you had boneless thighs instead of breast meat. I always think they are juicier than breast meat. Did you start the beans and pineapple with the broccili and carrots?

    1. Hi Caren, yes, boneless thighs would be great as well, although just watch the cooking time as it may vary, depending on how thick the chicken pieces are. Yes, the edamame beans are added to the pan at the same time as the broccoli and carrots.

  10. This looks really good and it’s one of the things that you can easily make that the kids will love. I happen to love Teriyaki chicken as well so this one’s a keeper.
