Great recipe! I didn't have Teriyaki Sauce in the house but I wanted to try Funky Chicken with Sesame Noodles recipe 76930 so I used this recipe. I did use dark soy sauce as it was all I had. I think if I were to use it for chicken I will add a bit of cornstarch just to thicken it a bit as it is quite thin. Thanks for posting this!

Very good! Thanks for sharing. This was easy to prepare and used all ingredients I usually have around. I especially liked the fact that it is lower sodium.
