I could lick my fingers for a whole day after eating this! I made the thighs in the oven rather than grilling and the sauce was amazing! It must have been the ketchup. When the kids are eating it too,be sure it's VERY tasty. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT6.Go Vagabonds!

OMG the Best & Easiest teriyaki sauce ever! I didn't have enough ginger and garlic so I added 1 generous tsp each and it's still full of flavor. This recipe made a huge batch of marinade.

Grilled teriyaki chicken is a pleaser in my house, so I used the chicken to mix with Peanut Chicken(Or Beef) Bowl for the family and I had the chicken mixed with broccoli and some teriyaki sauce. I only marinated for a bout 30 min. but the chicken turned out with a nice flavor. Thanks Lavender Lynn, for posting. Roxygirl
