Teriyaki Sauce for Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I use this Teriyaki sauce quite a lot when preparing my chicken, it has a wonderful flavour....I always add quite a lot of fresh garlic, but this sauce can be prepared omitting the garlic...it is wonderful with baked chicken (just bake the chicken in the sauce) or grilled.

Made for a great five star meal. This Teriyaki Sauce does have a wonderful flavor and we all enjoyed it. I too added fresh garlic which I minced. I doubled this recipe using half for the marinade and half to be spooned over the grilled chicken.
