I found this on another recipe'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.

Easy to make, very good! I substituted chicken broth for a portion of the soy sauce in order to lower the sodium content; otherwise I followed the recipe as written. The whole family loved it!

My DH had ordered Teriyaki Chicken from a local restaurant. It was horrible! So, being the good wife that I am, I determined to make it at home. I used this recipe. I used fresh garlic and fresh ginger but everything else the same. I did use a little less brown sugar after reading some of the reviews. I marinated the chicken all day and stir-fried in our wok. I did add some fresh broccoli and slivered carrots. Wonderful! I will be moving this to my "Tried & True" folder. Won't be ordering this out anymore.
