Top Review by .. Ameera ..

this was absolutely delicious!! thank you! I was looking for a teriyaki sauce made without sugar because I am trying to eat healthier, and also without alcohol, for religious reasons. ugggghhh I just wished I had taken photos!! sorry about time hopefully I will get a photo up here for you :D I never got the sauce to be very thick, which is what I wanted, but the flavor was so good!! I made these as Yakitori, which are chicken skewers, instead of whole breasts. I used both breast meat and thigh meat and my friends and I loved it!
