TERIYAKI CHICKEN MARINADE

The marinade for this recipe could not be simpler. It is fast to throw together. It is best for it to marinate for at least 1 hour, but you could do 20 minutes in a pinch.

Your best bet is to prepare it the night before and then it is ready to go when you want to make dinner.

  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Rice Vinegar (or Apple Cider Vinegar)
  • Garlic
  • Minced Ginger

So simple, right? The sweetness from the Teriyaki sauce brings the majority of the flavor, with everything else filling in the edges.

HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI CHICKEN THIGHS

After the chicken marinates, it is all just a matter of baking it up together.

  1. Make sure to start your rice before you put your sheet pan in the oven, otherwise it won’t be ready in time.
  2. Add the chicken and the cut vegetables to the baking sheet.
  3. Pour the left over marinade over all of the vegetables and toss them.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes and then serve over rice.

THE LEFTOVER MARINADE

There is a decent amount of marinade here, and it is what we are using to flavor the rest of the recipe. To simplify this recipe, I have you toss the vegetables with the marinade. We are baking everything, so it will be safe to eat the vegetables afterwards.

Another option would be to toss the vegetables with only half the marinade and boil down the rest of it while the sheet pan is baking.

  • Pro: You will have a thicker sauce to pour over your recipe at the end.
  • Con: It makes it less of a hands off meal.
