Recipe adapted from the "Help! My Apartment Has A Kitchen" cookbook. Super simple! Cooking time includes marinating time.


  1. Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, garlic powder and black pepper in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken into strips. Add the chicken to the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the broiler. Make sure the top oven rack is in the highest position, just under the broiling unit.
  4. Place the chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet or thread the chicken strips onto skewers. Discard the marinade.
  5. Broil the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until it is completely white and is just beginning to turn brown.

I also made this for my husband and it's one of his new favorites. He liked it because it wasn't sticky like most store bought teriyaki marinades.I am not a fan of broiling either so I just dumped everything into a pan and sort of stir fried it. I'm not sure if it was because I used chicken tenderloins that had been frozen, but when my chicken was done cooking it almost had the consistency of steak. I also tried this a second time using a turkey tenderloin with similar results. Both were delish and I have served over fried rice and asian style noodles. Great recipe!!!

I made this for my husband last night! I ALMOST passed on it cuz I don't like broiling, but I thought--I'll just pan fry it & see what happens (Zaar has given me more courage to be daring LOL). I used 2 chicken breasts, doubled the amt of soy sauce & br sugar but kept the seas amt & oil the same. I used seseme oil cuz it's great for Chinese food. I only marinated for about 45 min. Pan frying it seemed to work fine & the chicken had a great color. The only thing was the danger of the sauce evaporating--so a lid was needed at the end to maintain moisture. Also--hubby would have loved some extra sauce to spoon over so I'll try to make some extra to put on the side. thanks for sharing this!!

Loved this recipe but I think I should borrow a friend to enjoy meals like this instead of my fussy hubby.
