Look for pre-sliced pepper-and-onion mix in the produce section of the supermarket. It helps save prep time in this quick five-ingredient dinner. This easy dinner calls for hot cooked brown rice, which is perfect if you have leftovers. If not, look for microwaveable brown rice or frozen brown rice to keep prep minimal.

Whip up this quick and easy teriyaki chicken casserole in just one skillet—it’s the perfect go-to recipe for hectic weeknights that’s sure to satisfy a crowd. It’s ideal for making use of any leftover chicken and rice you have on hand. If you’re short on leftovers, a rotisserie chicken paired with a package of microwaveable brown rice is a good substitute.

Teriyaki Tofu Rice Bowls

With a handful of shortcut ingredients from your grocery store, including precooked rice packets and seasoned baked tofu, you can prepare several high-fiber, high-protein meals in about 15 minutes.

Teriyaki Salmon

Will Dickey

This simple, sweet teriyaki salmon is done in 20 minutes flat. Teriyaki sauces like this one have roots in Japan and were popularized in the U.S. via Hawaii. The sweet, syrupy sauce is typically made with soy sauce, usually sweetened with brown sugar and/or pineapple juice. This particular teriyaki sauce is made with brown sugar, and we’ve given the option of subbing tamari for the soy sauce to make the recipe gluten-free. The sauce is fast and simple, but if you have minutes to spare, you can amp it up with a little garlic and ginger for an extra boost of flavor. Serve the fish with steamed rice and veggies for an easy, healthy dinner. 

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.

Teriyaki-Glazed Cod with Cauliflower Rice

This healthy fish recipe comes together fast with just three ingredients you can always have on hand in your freezer and fridge. Store-bought teriyaki glaze makes a great marinade for cod that doubles as a sauce for the cauliflower rice.

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Skewers with Shishito Peppers

Jason Donnelly

Thin-skinned shishito peppers char quickly on the grill. We cook them on their own skewers, separate from the chicken. This way you can add them in the last few minutes so they don’t get too blistered. These peppers can sometimes be spicy, so if you don’t like too much heat, swap in mini bell peppers instead. Serve over rice to round out the meal.

Smoked Ahi Tuna Tacos

Eric Wolfinger

Overlooking the surf in Cayucos, Ruddell’s Smokehouse has been a landmark on California’s Central Coast for two decades. When it’s time to order, guests choose smoked meat, seafood or black bean patties in taco or sandwich form. We adapted their recipe using an easy technique for smoking on the grill.

Sheet-Pan Teriyaki Tofu with Carrots & Broccoli

With just one sheet pan and 35 minutes, you can get a flavorful vegetarian dinner on the table. The carrots get a head start in the oven to ensure they are cooked through, while a drizzle of teriyaki sauce at the end ties everything together. Serve with brown rice, if desired.

Instant-Pot Teriyaki Chicken

This Instant Pot teriyaki chicken strikes a perfect balance of umami and sweetness. The savory sauce gets thickened in the end and coats the chicken beautifully. Serve with stir-fried peppers and snap peas to complete the meal.

Pineapple-Teriyaki Chicken

Grilled teriyaki chicken with pineapple can be made with just a few pantry staples. Although it’s delicious when made with canned pineapple, fresh pineapple and its juice can easily be used in its place. Serve with brown rice and snow peas.

3-Ingredient Teriyaki Edamame Sauté

Carolyn A. Hodges, R.D.

Whip up this high-fiber, plant-based stir-fry for a quick and convenient dinner. Look for bottled teriyaki sauce labeled less sodium or reduced sodium to cut back on the salt without sacrificing flavor.

Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, garlic and ginger combine in this teriyaki-inspired marinade for grilled chicken. Try it with pork chops if you prefer. Grill fresh pineapple slices and asparagus alongside for simple side dishes.
