Easy Chicken Teriyaki

Ready in 20 minutes

This is a very easy recipe for all you teriyaki chicken lovers!

"This was a big hit in my home. In a home of particular eaters a recipe that leaves everyone licking their fingers gets a big two thumbs up. I used drumsticks and thighs. I also marinated them in the mixture for a couple hours. I might add honey next time and bake it in the oven to give the skin a sweet taste and crispy texture."

I love teriyaki chicken and this recipe is great! I use low-sodium soy sauce in place of regular soy sauce to cut the salt content way down.

Tried it a bit diff. Doubled the recipe used noodles and used cubed chicken, but really good flavor photo by K4k08 K4k08

Ended up using noodles and diced chicken but the flavor was good. Bit salty but that's all to do With he Soy sauce I guess. Next time im going to try adding broccoli and might try crumbing the chicken photo by K4k08 K4k08

Fabulous!! I dredged the chicken in flour mixed with herbs, salt and pepper and cooked it in a sauté pan. So juicy and tender.
