So it’s no secret that I love stir fries. In fact, many of the most popular recipes on this site are stir fries!

How to make teriyaki chicken stir fry
The first step in making this chicken teriyaki is to cook your veggies. I used a combination of asparagus and bell peppers here, but other great options would be broccoli, mushrooms, red onion or carrots.
After the veggies come out of the pan, the chicken goes in. I use chunks of boneless skinless chicken breast, but you can use cut up chicken thighs if you prefer.
While you cook the veggies and chicken, make the teriyaki sauce. Pour the sauce into the stir fry, top with sesame seeds and serve! Homemade teriyaki sauce only takes a few minutes to make, but if you’re really pressed for time, you can pick up a bottle of store bought sauce and be good to go.
How to serve chicken teriyaki
My favorite way to serve this teriyaki chicken stir fry is over rice. You can use brown or white rice, whichever you prefer. Other great options are quinoa, or some type of Asian noodle like soba noodles, rice noodles or chow mein noodles.
Eating healthy has never been easier (or more delicious)!
