There are a lot of “if’s” in this post. If I could dance, and if I could come visit each of you in your homes, and if I could make this dinner for you, I’d do the Moonwalk across your kitchen floor while delivering you a plate full of One Pan Teriyaki Chicken Dinner.

I can’t do any of those things. Especially dance. It’s like a giraffe walking across a frozen pond during a sneezing fit. It’s not pretty friends. Not pretty at all.

But what I can do is share this recipe with you and you can make it yourself at home. Because you love an easy weeknight meal that is packed full of veggies and flavor, right? And you love having fewer dishes because you’re super smart and lined your sheet pan with foil, right? If the answer to either of those questions is no, I’m not sure what to tell you. I’m guessing that I have a limited number of readers who want complicated dinners and extra dishes. But you never know. Who is to say.

Know what is funny about these photos? The best place for taking natural light pictures is right in front of one of our huge front windows on our big footstool. The day I made this for dinner, Bennett had been a total butthole. He woke up super early that morning, and only had a 45 minute afternoon nap. He was in prime form.

Troy had to lock himself and Bennett in the bedroom so I could take pictures without any toddlers burning their fingers. Everything was crazy hot from the oven and pumping out steam like it was its job. I was up on a chair taking pictures while Jack and I were blowing the steam to try to get a clear photo. Meanwhile, Bennett was locked up and pissed because he was exhausted and hungry and wanted his dinner.

Puff puff, click. Muffled wail. Puff puff, click. Muffled wail.

The brilliance of One Pan Teriyaki Chicken Dinner is how versatile it is. You can use whatever veggies you have on hand. Do you have some squishy carrots about to cross the vegetable rainbow bridge? Slice those bad boys up! A handful of Brussels sprouts that are orphaned from another meal? They now have a cozy home with this chicken dinner. For this recipe, I used three carrots, two stalks of celery, about a cup of Brussels Sprouts, a cup of broccolini, a handful of green beans and snap peas, and a whole onion sliced.

Basically, use whatever you want and/or whatever you have on hand. You got this. Your new name is the Dinner Boss.

I like the sound of that. And I think you do too.

  1. I love one pan meals. I make the same thing using boneless chicken thighs.

  2. Recipe sounds really good, but I really enjoyed your comment – “Puff puff, click. Muffled wail. Puff puff, click. Muffled wail.” I think all parents can relate. I love how you don’t romanticize what it’s like to be a parent.

    We love our kids, but there are times they are little (now big) buttholes. When mine were young we used to make a gingerbread house every year. I mean the kind where you have to make the Royal Icing and use it as “cement” to hold together the gingerbread walls. Half way through I would be sweaty, frustrated, sprinkles and frosting would be everywhere and the boys were arguing over who ate what decoration that should have gone on the gingerbread house. One year the boys lost interest half way through because the icing was taking too long to “set up” so they left. I poured myself a glass of wine and finished it on my own.

    • I seriously don’t know how people who glamorize parenthood can keep up that charade.

      Did you make gingerbread houses again after that year? Do the boys even remember that day? I bet it makes you cringe and laugh being on the other side of it now.

  3. Anything that has one pan, I’m down!
