Sheet pan recipes are quick, easy, and all the rage. This Sheet Pan Stir-Fried Chicken Teriyaki with Pineapple is so flavorful, and just the thing for busy weeknights!
Sheet pan recipes are super popular right now, and I can se why. They are super easy to whip together, and they pack a lot of flavor. This Sheet Pan Stir-Fried Chicken Teriyaki recipe is packed with chicken, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bell pepper, pineapple, ginger, and garlic.
While all of the chicken, veggies, and pineal roast in the oven, you cook the teriyaki sauce in the microwave. That way everything is done at the same time, and dinner is served in just 30 minutes or less (depending on how fast your knife skills are).
Cook’s Note – Sheet Pan Stir-Fried Chicken Teriyaki with Pineapple:
- If you want dinner prep to be even faster, then you can mix up the teriyaki sauce the night before. Just make sure you store it covered in the refrigerator. Give it a good whisk before cooking it in the microwave.
- The chicken, vegetable, and pineapple mixture can be mixed up the night before. Just store it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.
- Leftover can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
