A Delicious Keto Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

The key to making a good keto teriyaki dish is to start with a really delicious sugar free teriyaki sauce. We’ve got you covered there! Our recipe uses our superfood monk fruit sweetener, fresh garlic and ginger, and a touch of sesame oil, for a teriyaki sauce that tastes like the real thing but is shockingly low in calories and carbs.

To recreate a restaurant quality dish, we love:

  • Cauliflower rice (you can buy this frozen or learn how to make cauliflower rice at home).
  • An array of vibrant vegetables, like broccoli, peppers, and mushrooms.
  • Boneless chicken thighs, browned in sesame oil.

The seasonings of this dish are kept simple, because the homemade teriyaki sauce is bursting with flavor!

How to Make Keto Chicken Teriyaki

Step 1: Heat sesame or avocado oil in a skillet, and then add the chicken thighs. Season with salt and pepper, and brown both sides of the chicken for about 7-8 minutes, depending on thickness of the chicken thighs. When the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the pan and slice it.

Step 2: Lightly sauté the vegetables. Season them lightly with salt and pepper, if desired. The teriyaki sauce will provide a salty flavor even if the vegetables are left plain.
