  • No bun: For a lower carb option place your burger in a lettuce wrap.
  • Oil: Add a drop of avocado oil or sesame oil to your teriyaki sauce for added flavor.
  • Grill Pineapple: If you want to add a smoky tone use grilled pineapple slices. Grill on a medium heat in a frying pan or cook on the the outdoor grill.


  • Ground Chicken: If you want to make a chicken patty you can use ground chicken instead of a chicken breast.

Optional Toppings

You can eat your teriyaki burger plain, but I like to add a little pizazz to my burgers. If you aren’t sure what to top your burger with, here are my favorites:

  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Grilled Pineapple
  • Pepperjack cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Mayo

What Does Teriyaki Chicken Taste Like?

Teriyaki chicken is sweet and savory. The teriyaki sauce caramelizes during the cooking process giving your chicken a sweet and savory flavor.

Can I Use Frozen Chicken?

Absolutely! In fact, one of the best things about your Instant Pot is that you can make just about anything whether you forgot to pull the meat out or not. However, you will need to increase the cooking time to 12 minutes.
