I made true healthy one pan teriyaki chicken and cauliflower. Served with brown rice or could be quinoa. No hoisin sauces, mirin and sake wines, and of course no yucky bottles of teriyaki sauce. Hence, the lighter brown colour of homemade teriyaki sauce sans loads of brown sugar.

I love to veg up traditional recipes like chicken and cauliflower curry, shrimp quinoa with asparagus, and roasted cauliflower mac and cheese.

Homemade teriyaki sauce is super easy to make. Technically, this teriyaki chicken skillet is adapted to make it more of a marinade to soak chicken in so it comes out more flavourful.

I used chicken breasts on the bone so this recipe left me with good 4 bones for a soup.

You cook cauliflower al dente. It is very nice to eat firm cooked cauliflower rather than a mush.

Then coop chicken from marinade pressing the spoon to the side of a bowl and draining marinade into the bowl and adding chicken to a skillet. I cook marinade later too.

Teriyaki Chicken and Cauliflower Skillet

Teriyaki Chicken and Cauliflower is 30 minute healthy stir fry with chicken breast, cauliflower and homemade teriyaki sauce.

  • Author: ifoodreal.com
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless & skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1” cubes
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce, divided (I used Bragg’s)
  • 4 tbsp raw honey, divided
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 small garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1.5 – 2 lbs cauliflower, chopped into small florets
  • 2 tbsp coconut or avocado oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch, organic
  • 3 green onion sprigs, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Brown rice or quinoa, for serving

Instructions

  1. Cook brown rice or quinoa as per package instructions.
  2. In a medium bowl, add 3 tbsp soy sauce, 3 tbsp honey, rice vinegar and garlic; whisk to combine. Add chicken and mix well to coat. Let marinate while chopping cauliflower and up until cooking it.
  3. Preheat large non-stick wok or deep skillet on medium heat and swirl 1 tbsp of oil to coat. Add cauliflower, cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. It should be cooked al dente and not mushy. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Return wok to the stove and swirl remaining 1 tbsp of oil. Using a large spoon, scoop chicken from marinade pressing the spoon to the side of a bowl and draining marinade into the bowl (we will be using it shortly, do not discard) and adding chicken to a skillet. Reserve marinade, cover chicken and let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. To the bowl with marinade, add remaining 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp honey, water and cornstarch; whisk well. Add to the wok with chicken and stir. Cover, reduce heat to low and let cook for about 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat, add previously cooked cauliflower and stir. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve hot with brown rice or quinoa.

Store: Refrigerate in a glass airtight container for up to 3-4 days.

  1. Never thought of the combo of cauliflower and teriyaki but it really works! Tweaked the recipe to incorporate cooked, shredded chicken – instead of marinating the chicken, I just added the sauce and the chicken to the skillet after sauteeing the cauliflower with sweet
    onion. Topped with fresh snipped chives. Delicious, healthy meal served with leftover quinoa. Thanks!

  2. Hi olena,

    Made this for dinner tonight! I followed your recipe as written and it was great! Even my husband ate it! It was sooo good! I’m trying to eat clean (except for restaurant cheat days) and it’s hard to find recipes that are both easy and delicious. Loving your site!

    1. Hi Leticia. Awesome and thank you. I know what you mean. Sometimes I think my recipe is too simple or why is my blog so popular and then after searching for recipes online I realize HOW hard it is to find smth easy and healthy. Like I was looking for vegan chocolate cake recipe, a simple one. OMG good luck to me. I will create my own LOL.

  3. Loved this recipe! It was so much better and fresher tasting than the normal teriyaki that I make. I really liked the cauliflower with it (usually make with broccoli). I’m just starting clean eating and am not always quite sure what I can eat-didn’t think I could use soy sauce. I am happy I can. I love your recipes! Tomorrow night I am making stovetop zucchini noodle lasagna-can’t wait:)

  4. This looks amazing. Thank you for bringing us clean meals. I can’t wait to try this. I just bought a head of organic cauliflower yesterday for 3.99 and the non organic was 4.99. Crazy but happy to have my cauliflower. Love it.

  5. Love this! Hope the price on organic cauliflower drops here in the US also. I’d like to be able to just find any at any price right now. So far all non-organic and I’m not willing.

    But I am book marking this for when it does come in for sure! The marinade looks so good! Thank-you!
