Teriyaki Chicken Nachos

Nachos? That sounds like a fiesta! Here’s a chicken teriyaki nachos recipe that puts an exotic spin on a classic dish. Not to mention that it doesn’t get any more practical than cooking a full meal on a single baking sheet. Topped with our Marble Cheddar Cheese, it’s absolutely swoon-worthy! A dish to share in front of the TV, while watching your team play the big game.


For the Teriyaki sauce

  • 250 mL (1 cup) of water
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) of soy sauce
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) of brown sugar, packed
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) of honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 mL (1 tsp) of grated fresh ginger 
  • 2 mL (1/2 tsp) of sea salt
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) of cornstarch whisked into 30 mL (2 tbsp) of water

For the Nachos

  • 1 roasted chicken, meat removed from the bones and diced
  • 1 bag of tortilla chips (about 275 g)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 500 mL (2 cups) of Armstrong Marble Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 250 mL (1 cup) of shredded red or green cabbage
  • 2 green onions, minced

To serve

  • 4 to 6 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime
  • Sriracha sauce


For the teriyaki sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, whisk the water, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, ginger, salt, and cayenne pepper together. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch-water mixture and bring back to a simmer, whisking constantly. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, until the sauce is thick. Transfer the sauce to a jar and set aside.

For the nachos

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C (425 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the diced chicken with half of the teriyaki sauce.
  3. Spread half of the tortilla chips over the prepared baking sheet. Distribute half of the garnishes over the chips: chicken, bell pepper, Armstrong Marble Cheddar Cheese (shredded), cabbage, and green onion. Cover with the second half of the tortilla chips, then top with the remaining garnishes. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

To serve

  1. Garnish the nachos with radishes, cucumber, avocado, sour cream, and fresh coriander. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce and serve with lime wedges and Sriracha sauce, to taste. Serve immediately.
