If you are making your own teriyaki chicken, try my easy teriyaki chicken marinade and homemade teriyaki sauce! I also have delicious teriyaki chicken stir fry or copycat Panda Express teriyaki chicken recipes you could try!
1. Teriyaki Noodles
Teriyaki noodles are the most classic pairing for teriyaki chicken! They are easy, filling, and will make a great base for just about any Japanese or Asian-inspired meal.
These tender pan-fried noodles are tossed in made-from-scratch teriyaki sauce. It's a restaurant-quality teriyaki dinner from the comfort of your own kitchen!
2. Hibachi Noodles
Whip out your griddle and try making these super simple hibachi noodles! In fact, I like to prepare my chicken on the griddle first so the noodles can soak up all of the tasty flavors of the grilled meat.
You can make these noodles with lo mein, yakisoba, or even angel hair pasta! It's a quick 10-minute recipe that will make all the difference to your meal.
3. Hibachi Fried Rice
All you need is a few cups of cooked rice, some onion, butter, soy sauce, egg, frozen peas, and cooking oil!
4. Hibachi Vegetables
Hibachi vegetables are a great addition to any of the carbohydrate heavy options on this list like rice or noodles. Or, you can keep things low-carb and enjoy a nutritious chicken and vegetable dinner!
This recipe is flexible, so you can use your favorite vegetables or whatever you have on hand. I like to include bok choy, onions, carrots, broccoli, and celery!
5. Panda Express Fried Rice
Fried rice is another staple recipe in Asian cuisine that can be paired with just about any protein, including teriyaki chicken! Bonus points if you have some leftover rice on hand because it tastes even better with day-old rice.
I mix some scrambled eggs, peas, carrots, and green onions into my fried rice. However, you can certainly customize it to suit your family!
6. Panda Express Mixed Vegetables
If you love the tender steamed vegetables from Panda Express, now you can recreate them at home! I've also included instructions to wok-fry the veggies if that's what you prefer.
It's a simple blend of broccoli, carrots, zucchini, string beans, and cabbage that is both delicious and nutritious!
7. Lo Mein
This simple lo mein recipe features stir-fried noodles in a savory homemade sauce. It also includes onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and bell pepper, so it's a great way to turn chicken teriyaki into a well-rounded meal!
From start to finish, lo mein only takes about 15 minutes to make. It's a great last-minute addition to some chicken teriyaki.
8. Air Fryer Zucchini
It doesn't get any easier than this air fryer zucchini! With just some oil, Parmesan cheese, zucchini, and salt, you can whip up an easy vegetable to pair with your chicken teriyaki.
The air fryer cooks it up perfectly tender and makes for easy cleanup, too!
9. Hibachi Zucchini
Another great vegetable side dish for chicken teriyaki is this easy hibachi zucchini and onions! The veggies are pan-fried with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and red pepper flakes for the perfect balance of spicy umami flavor.
10. Air Fryer Potstickers
When in doubt, pick up a bag of frozen potstickers from the grocery store! Your air fryer can cook them perfectly in minutes so they are practically hands-off!
These deliciously crispy little pockets of goodness are a great appetizer for any Asian dinner!
11. Instant Pot Long Grain White Rice
Any white rice would be delicious with teriyaki chicken, but I find using my Instant Pot the easiest way to whip some up! Long-grain rice like basmati is the perfect choice for soaking up some of that tasty teriyaki sauce.
This recipe is also perfect for later turning into fried rice! Just make this white rice in your Instant Pot, let it cool, refrigerate it, and use it for fried rice the next day!
12. Benihana Onion Soup
This light broth soup is exactly like the famous recipe from everyone's favorite Japanese steakhouse! It is light and savory, so it won't fill you up too much before the meal.
As the name suggests, this soup is rich in onion flavor. There are also tender slices of mushrooms, celery, and carrots to enjoy!
13. Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing
A garden or house salad with this Japanese ginger salad dressing is a great way to start your chicken Teriyaki dinner. It's light and creamy with lots of refreshing ginger flavor.
You can quickly whip up this dressing at home with a few simple ingredients. From start to finish, it only takes about 5 minutes to prepare!
