Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken and Brussels Sprouts is a quick 15-minute dinner recipe idea using just a few ingredients in your air fryer.
Everyone loves teriyaki chicken and vegetables. But, making this into a three-ingredient, 15-minute meal is where it’s a GAME-CHANGER.
There isn’t really anything special about this quick and easy dinner recipe, just that you can make it any night of the week, and have your family gathered up in about 20 minutes total.
Do y’all have an air fryer??
We got my dad one of those big Air Fryer Ovens, and it works super well. But, I knew if I were going to own one, it couldn’t be big.
My kitchen is tiny, and I don’t like products that are one function only.
And while an air fryer only air fries, you can make all kinds of things in it! It’s quite amazing!
This recipe is low carb if you use a sugar-free teriyaki sauce. You could also try these Keto Sweet Chili Sticky Asian Chicken Wings! They’re so so good!
Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken and Brussels Sprouts is a 1-2-3 meal, and I’ll walk you through every step.
I own a Chefman Compact Air Fryer, and it’s small y’all. Enough to cook about 6 wings inside it. It’s the perfect size for a single lady! And, it’s not expensive.
This air fryer has been used way more than I thought — I don’t own a microwave, so it’s starting to reheat things for me. It works just great!
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER TERIYAKI CHICKEN AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS:
In a large mixing bowl, add chicken pieces and cut up brussels sprouts with about 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce. Use more if you’d like!
Allow the chicken and sprouts to hang in the sauce for a good 5 minutes while the air fryer preheats.
Now, you don’t necessarily need to preheat the air fryer, but I like to turn on for 5 minutes and get it toasty before I add anything to it. Plus, I like to hear that sizzle sound when I dump something in.
Dump your chicken and sprouts into your warmed up air fryer.
Close the drawer, and turn your timer on.
I have the temperature dial on 400˚, and that temperature dial hasn’t moved since I used it the first time. 400˚ seems to be the best at heating things up, or cooking wings, etc.
Most air fryers you see have a digital icon list, and lots of presets you can use. This compact air fryer is so simple, and I’ve really appreciated that!
Let the chicken and sprouts roast in the fryer for 10 minutes.
This is what the recipe looked like at the 10 minutes mark.
That’s a pretty quick dinner, don’t you think?!
I gave this a good shimmy and closed the air fryer for another 5 minutes, just so everything was nice and crispy.
And that’s it, folks! Open the drawer and dump it into a bowl. It’s so deliciously easy, and you can top with more teriyaki sauce if you like.
You could even make this and then add to Ramen Noodles the next day for lunch. YUM!Print
