Teriyaki Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Troop Angel

I found this on another recipe website...it's really easy, fairly inexpensive (I had all the ingredients at home already) and the leftovers are super! I really hope you enjoy! I serve with Shortcut Sticky Rice, Shortcut Sticky Rice. The cooking time does not include the marinating time of 2-3 hours. Hint: I made the 2nd batch of marinade right before I cooked the chicken.

I didn't marinate it (didn't figure out what I was cooking until supper time). So I cooked the chicken separately and then put the sauce in the pan and brought it to a boil. Added the chicken and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. FABULOUS. I also added a little fresh garlic to the sauce. Bit time winner.
