Awesome taste from this four ingredient marinade. Chicken breasts cooked very quickly on a high heat barbecue grill. Great served on a green salad for a light summer dinner.


  1. Mix together teriyaki sauce, lemon juice, garlic and sesame oil in a large plastic bag and place chicken breasts in it.
  2. Seal bag, and shake to coat.
  3. Place in refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours (or up to 24), turning occasionally.
  4. Preheat grill for high heat.
  5. Lightly oil the grill grate.
  6. Remove chicken from bag, discarding any remaining marinade.
  7. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes each side or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.

Don't throw away the marinade! Heat it in a saucepan to a boil, let it cool and use it as a sauce.

The chicken was left in the marinade for about 4 hours. I'm with you in that I think 24 hours in lemon juice might be a bit long. I made this for the Pacific Islands Gluten Free Challenge during ZWT 7. I made my on teriyaki sauce and made sure that the soy sauce I was using was gluten free. The chicken was moist and flavorful. It was served with Recipe #456118 for a true taste of the islands.

Yum! I marinated my chicken breast for about 4 hours and then grilled it on my stove-top grill pan. Super simple and tasty. Very moist and flavorful. Thanks HokiesLady for a great dinner. Made for Potluck Tag.
