Keto Teriyaki Chicken Ingredients

To make your own teriyaki chicken at home is super easy. You really only need 3 main ingredients

A great sugar free homemade low carb teriyaki sauce.

Chicken – I use thigh fillets but you can any cut of chicken.

Vegetables. I love asparagus, broccolini or baby corn. (Did you know baby corn is low carb)

Low Carb Teriyaki Sauce Ingredients

Making your own sauce and chicken teriyaki marinade is super simple. You only need a few key ingredients. It should be noted I make a double batch with the sauce recipe. Only half is used in this teriyaki chicken recipe for two people.

Tamari. I use gluten free tamari from the supermarket. Coconut aminos can be substituted. You can use soy sauce if preferred. There is a gluten free soy sauce but no keto soy sauce specifically. Just watch the amount you use in any low carb Asian dinners to keep the carbs manageable.

Sesame oil. An absolute must have in my opinion.

Gold sweetener. I use Sukrin Gold which for most will be available online only. However, you can purchase both Lakanto Gold or Natvia Gold in the supermarket.

How to Make it

Oh, gosh this is too easy. Making your own keto teriyaki chicken is so NOT difficult.

Make the sauce. Reduce until it is sticky. We have included a Thermomix teriyaki sauce recipe as well and it does reduce beautifully in the thermie.

Stir fry the chicken in a hot wok or frying pan. Toss through the vegetables and sauce and you are the new Iron Chef. (Funny aside I am a huge fan of the original series of Iron Chef 😂).

Making you your own homemade keto or low carb chicken teriyaki has never been so easy! All said and done chicken teriyaki in just 20 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 onion sliced into thin strips
  • 300 g chicken thigh fillets cut into strips
  • 1/2 bunch broccolini
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus
  • 1 green onion sliced thinly, to garnish
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1 cup Cauliflower Rice to serve

TERIYAKI SAUCE

  • 0.25 cup gluten-free tamari (60g)
  • 0.25 cup water (60g)
  • 1-2 tablespoons gold sweetener (35g)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste (20g)
  • 0.25 tsp xanthan gum

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • For the sauce; place all ingredients into a small saucepan over moderate heat and simmer until sauce has reduced by half. Reserve. This sauce makes enough for 4 serves.
  • Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add the avocado oil, onion and chicken strips. Stir fry until onion and chicken have browned. Stir through vegetables (if using) and half of the Teriyaki sauce. Stir fry until the sauce is thickened. Divide rice between two serving bowls. Top with teriyaki chicken. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

THERMAL METHOD

  • For the sauce; Place all ingredients into mixing bowl. Cook 5 min/110 ̊C/speed 1. Reserve. This sauce makes enough for 4 serves.
  • Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add the avocado oil, onion and chicken strips. Stir fry until onion and chicken have browned. Stir through vegetables (if using) and half of the Teriyaki sauce. Stir fry until the sauce is thickened. Divide rice between two serving bowls. Top with teriyaki chicken. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

Notes

NUTRITIONAL
  • The nutritional has been calculated less the cauliflower rice. Personally I much prefer the stir fry as is but this is added if you feel the need for another vegetable.
CHOICE OF PROTEIN
  • Chicken can easily be swapped for beef, pork, tofu, broccoli or cauliflower for a keto vegan option too. 
  • Teriyaki also works amazing with salmon. Coat a 150g salmon fillet and bake or fry to taste.
TO STORE
  • The leftover teriyaki sauce can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks. Alternatively, freeze it in a ziplock bag for an easy sauce to cook from frozen.
INGREDIENTS
  • Gold sweetener can be purchased through Surkin Australia, or in supermarkets through the brands Lakanto or Natvia. Redice the sweetener if you prefer a less sweet sauce.
  • I am a huge fan (not sponsored) of Gourmet Garden Ginger Paste. I always have two tubes in the fridge door. I find I have zero waste and it is very economical.

    This recipe was super quick and easy. I made it using rump steak and my husband just loved it. I will definitely be making this again.

  • Debbie says:

    Recipe was delicious. Just wondering at the top you mention that 1 serve is less than 3 net carbs yet in the nutritional panel below the recipe it says 5 net carbs. Could you please explain the difference? Does the panel it refer to 2 servings so the complete recipe? Am I missing something? Ta.

    LUV! LUV! LUV! I now triple the sauce quantities and freeze in serving sizes ready for easy, tasty, delicious, stir fries with low carb veges. Chicken or rump steak are our family favourites, but very keen to try on salmon too. Awesome recipe Megan, thanks x

  • Carol Millington says:

    So delicious- loved making my own teriyaki sauce – such a quick dinner. Served it with left over low carb cauliflower bake.

  • Suzie Whyte says:

    Hi … when you say that the sauce is enough for 4 serves does that mean that the standard recipe for 2 people is enough sauce for 2 people x 4 times?
