Gluten-Free Teriyaki Chicken with Broccoli


Everyone loves teriyaki chicken—and this one is better for you with much less added sugar. It's also gluten-free so long as you use tamari (aka gluten-free soy sauce). Feel free to swap out the broccoli for any veggie—carrots, snow peas, green beans—that you have on hand.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 cups fresh broccoli florets (8 oz.)

  • ¼ cup lower-sodium tamari

  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice

  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons grated garlic

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 (8.8 ounce) pouches precooked microwaveable brown rice, prepared according to package directions

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring often, until browned and mostly cooked, about 6 minutes. Add broccoli; cook, stirring often, until bright green and tender, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir together tamari, pineapple juice, honey, vinegar, garlic, cornstarch and ginger in a small bowl.

  3. Add the tamari mixture to the chicken mixture in the pan. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until the liquid is thickened and the mixture is glazed, about 20 seconds. Remove from heat. Serve the chicken mixture over rice; sprinkle evenly with scallions and sesame seeds.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
