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.

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



very good, i added snowpeas of course and thai chile sauce, excellent

Overall pretty good however I thought that sauce was a little too sweet. Still enjoyed my dinner...and it was easy to make!

I really enjoyed this! I added sliced green onions and a tsp of honey as others suggested to the sauce. I marinated chicken breast pieces and salmon in it for about 30min and then baked it at 375 for 15-20 min. It turned out delicious on both with lots of flavor and both were moist.

This was very easy and quick. My 3 kids all under 6 did not like it but my husband and I did very much. I would double the sauce recipe and add scallions to it as well.

I JUST made this and it is a hit with the hubby and my toddler! I will be adding this to my dinner rotation. Very simple and easy. Hubby, who NEVER comments on anything, even likes it. U know it's a winner if HE commented on it Lol!

I just made this for supper and we all liked it. I had to double the recipe because I used more chicken. I will make this again because it was so quick & easy.
