Healthy Teriyaki Chicken

healthy teriyaki chicken recipe large

This is one of my favourite dinner recipes. I altered the main recipe to make it alot more healty and to cut down on the fat. This recipe tastes fantastic and packs close to 50 grams of protein per serving.

Serves one


  • 4 oz skinless/boneless chicken breasts

  • 1/3 cup prepared teriyaki sauce

  • 1/3 cup orange juice

  • 1 tsp cornstarch

  • 1/3 tsp ginger

  • ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ cup small broccoli florets

  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts

  • ½ cup rice


Cut chicken breasts into 1 1/4" pieces; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, orange juice, cornstarch, and ginger; set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add the chicken pieces and stir fry until they are lightly browned, about 3-7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a bowl, leaving the drippings in the skillet. Reduce the heat to moderate.

Add broccoli to the skillet and stir fry for 3-5 minutes. Stir the teriyaki mixture and pour it into the skillet with the broccoli. Cook the mixture, stirring constantly, until it is thickened and bubbly, about 2-4 minutes. Add water chestnuts and the cooked chicken. Continue cooking until heated through, serve over cooked rice.
