My easy sheet pan chicken teriyaki recipe is a low-carb version, as we swap rice for roasted vegetables instead, which are coated in a deliciously tasty teriyaki sauce alongside the tender baked chicken pieces.
My low-carb gluten-free sheet pan chicken teriyaki recipe is a flavorful meal in one that cooks up in a flash! I eat a mostly low-carb diet as a lifestyle choice. I’m not super strict about it these days but I prefer low carb whenever possible. Therefore, I’m always looking for more quick and easy meals to add to my arsenal, so I developed this quick and easy sheet pan chicken teriyaki.
Instead of the rice, we just load up on broccoli and cauliflower, which we bake in the oven alongside the chicken breast. You’ll notice that the sauce has some honey in it and yes teriyaki sauce is a bit carby, but most of the sauce ends up in the bottom of the sheet pan, with just a very faint coating on the dish to give it flavor. I count this as another powerful weapon in our low-carb supper arsenal! The only other ingredient is sriracha for just a touch of heat because I can’t help myself.
If you’re not eating low-carb, this is still a great one-pan teriyaki chicken with vegetables recipe for a low-fuss main dish that will be on the table in less than an hour. Plus, you have more options available to you. You can double the sauce, add in your favorite veggies (such as carrots), or serve over rice for a meal that will please the whole family.

How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken Teriyaki
Cut up your chicken breast into bite-sized pieces.
Chop broccoli and cauliflower into florets if they aren’t already.
And dice up the green onion.
Arrange chicken and veggies on a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Stir up the sauce ingredients and drizzle over the baking sheet, then toss to coat.
Bake this at 375 for about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
The dish is done when chicken is cooked through and vegetables are to your desired tenderness.
Enjoy this low-carb meal!
