Chicken and Teriyaki Sauce

"Sooo yummy!! I've been trying to find a teriyaki sauce recipe that tastes like the Seattle Teryiaki restaurants and here it is. The only ingredient that was a little difficult to find was the mirin. I found it at my local Safeway grocery store in the asian food aisle. It was a Kikkoman brand and the bottle had a red top and it's a yellowish liquid. It says "AJI-MIRIN Sweet Cooking Rice Wine". I agree with Momat41 in that I would give this recipe a 10 if I could!!"
