I'm not sure what to call this...I tossed it together for tonight's chicken breasts...Sweet and Spicy!! It's really very good!! Not for the faint at heart though...it has a little kick.

Tried this one on a whim, as I can't tolerate the typical pre-bottled fare that is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup.. substituted 20oz can of crushed pineapple and used about 1 1/2tsp of ground cayenne.. ran it through the blender after simmering... the results are amazing - best teriyaki I have had ever - the fresh ginger and garlic blend beautifully, the sweet of the pineapple and the spice of the ginger and cayenne make for a lot of flavors going on - but they blend beautifully - next is to try this with some of the various fresh or dried chilis from my garden. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!!!
