Frugal Foodie: Chicken teriyaki


Mackenzie Webb, Writer

This is the ninth installment of “Frugal Foodie,” a series where Mackenzie Webb explores recipes that are both appetizing and affordable for college students.

It’s that point in the semester when everyone is so busy, you don’t even want to think about having to plan a meal or go grocery shopping. Luckily, this meal only has 4 ingredients and uses a marinade to add huge flavor with little effort.


3 chicken breasts

Teriyaki sauce

1 package frozen broccoli

Brown rice


Total Cost: $13.70

Servings: 6

Cost per serving: $2.28


Step 1: Between 1-5 hours before you want to have dinner, put three chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag with half a bottle of teriyaki sauce. This can sit and marinade while you are in class or at work, and it will be ready for dinner!

Step 2: When you’re ready to eat, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take the chicken out of the marinade and put it on a sheet pan lined with tinfoil. Place the chicken on the tinfoil and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 3: While the chicken is in the oven, cook brown rice and broccoli so that everything is ready at the same time.

Enjoy a simple and tasty teriyaki chicken dinner!
