Healthy Chicken Teriyaki

Recipe for Healthy Chicken Teriyaki:


1.5 pound of chicken breast (I use the breast that are already sliced in strips. My favorite brand is called “Coleman” and it is organic.

1/2 cup of Coconut Aminos (you can buy this here) – Coconut Aminos is WAY healthier than using teriyaki or soy sauce. It doesn’t have any of the added processed ingredients like Msg and crazy amounts of salt!

1 tbsp of coconut oil

sliced green onion

sesame seeds

1 cup of quinoa


  1. Start by adding in coconut oil to a HOT pan (I use a dutch oven)
  2. Add in chicken to your pan and mix your chicken around until both sides turn white (about 30sec-1min)
  3. Add in coconut aminos and let it simmer on high heat. This usually takes about 5-8 minutes depending on how high your heat is and how much chicken you make. The coconut aminos should be simmering and slowly diminishing down to a small amount of liquid than when you first put it in your pan.
  4. Turn your heat down to a lower temperature and the coconut aminos should be slowly turning into a thick texture.
  5. Keep cooking until chicken is fully cooked and the coconut amino liquid is diminished down to a thick texture on the chicken.
  6. In a separate bowl, cook your quinoa. I cooked about 1 cup of quinoa in boiling water.
  7. Place your chicken over the quinoa and add your sesame seeds, green onion, and whatever other seasonings or vegetables you’d like!
