Ingredients

Meal Base:

  • 1.5 lbs. Chicken Thighs boneless; skinless
  • 1 medium Zucchini cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups Cooked White Rice
  • 1 cup Broccoli Florets
  • 1/2 cup Snow Peas
  • 1/2 cup Sliced Carrots

Optional: 1 Tbsp. Black Sesame Seeds

    Teriyaki Sauce Base:

    • 3/4 Water
    • 1/3 Tamari
    • 1/3 Coconut Sugar
    • 2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp. Arrowroot Powder or cornstarch
    • 1/2 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
    • 1/2 Tbsp. Grated Fresh Ginger
    • 1/2 tsp. Red Chili Flakes
    • 1 tsp. Onion Powder

    Instructions

    • Combine all teriyaki sauce ingredients (except for arrowroot powder and sesame into a small pot over medium/high heat until reaches a boil. Then, create a slurry by ladling out 1 cup’s worth of the hot liquid into a bowl and add arrowroot powder - whisking well until completely smooth.
    • Next, whisk the slurry back into the pot and lower heat to a simmer — let reduce/thicken for ~10-15 minutes (stirring consistently until sauce can coat the back of a spoon. Once the sauce has finished cooking, stir in the sesame oil, remove from stove, and let cool minimum ~5 minutes to further set up.
    • Preheat oven to 400℉ and line a sheet pan with foil.
    • Place chicken thighs on a lined sheet pan and pour ~1/3 worth over the chicken thighs. Flip chicken thighs and pour another ~1/3 worth of teriyaki sauce over the thighs until well-coated.
    • Optional: Reserve remaining 1/3 of teriyaki sauce for serving when ready to enjoy the completed meal.
    • Then, place onto the middle oven rack and let cook for 15 minutes, then flip chicken and cook another 10-15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and has reached an internal temperature of 165℉.
    • When the chicken is nearly finished cooking, start steaming the carrots for ~5 minutes, then add remaining veggies and steam another 5-8 minutes, or until broccoli and snow peas are vibrant green and all veggies are tender, but still firm.
    • Once the chicken is done, slice/dice into bite-sized pieces and serve with rice and veggies (and an optional drizzle of extra teriyaki sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds)!
    • Store and Enjoy!
