Teriyaki Chicken Fillets with Broccolini, gluten-free
These Teriyaki Chicken Fillets are gluten-free, succulent, juicy pieces of thigh fillets with crispy golden skin. This recipe calls for a handful of ingredients and is ready in 15 minutes, which also makes it a great meal prep option. The Broccolini is just as simple to make, packs a punch of flavour and is super crunchy and fresh. The combination of the two makes for a perfect dinner or even a meal prep idea.
Everyone loves juicy, sticky glazed and flavourful pieces of chicken, which explains why Teriyaki Chicken is one of the most popular Japanese takeout options in the world. The only issue for coeliacs is that often it is difficult to find gluten-free.
Fortunately, if you live in Australia, Chang's Asian Food has created an authentic-tasting, gluten-free Japanese Teriyaki Sauce that is delicious! The best part of having this sauce available is that it makes cooking fast and easy.
This Japanese Teriyaki Sauce will rival your favourite takeout or restaurant, so there is simply no reason not to make it at home! In fact, all you truly need is chicken and this sauce and you've got the most perfect, gluten-free Teriyaki Chicken you will ever try.

How to Serve Teriyaki Chicken Fillets
We love to serve these Teriyaki Chicken Fillets with a very simple yet flavourful Broccolini in Soy Sauce (the recipe is below) and a mound of hot steamed rice. You can find the recipe for my easy Stovetop Rice here. We find the choice to combine rice, chicken and greens make for a complete and balanced meal.
Chicken Thigh Fillets with Skin
I highly recommend purchasing chicken with the skin as it comes out golden brown, sticky and delicious, however, it can be difficult to find chicken thigh fillets with the skin on. If this is the case, I suggest chicken thigh cutlets and removing the bone. Your local butcher can do this for you.
I highly recommend using a non-stick pan.
Living overseas and don't have access to Chang's Teriyaki Sauce?
This recipe works well with most Teriyaki Sauces that are bottled, simply check the ingredients if they are gluten-free.
This is a fantastic meal-prep recipe. Place the chicken and broccolini into a microwave-safe container along with the Rice and simply heat. It stays well in the refrigerator for up to a week.
