Teriyaki Delight

"This is an easy and delicious main dish. If you started marinating the chicken in the morning, this is a very quick main dish in the evening. Recipe from Family Fun. Prep time does not include marinating time."

    Great chicken. I love hoisin so knew that I would like this one. I followed the directions other than I used thighs with skin and bone. Simple recipe that tasted great. Thanks for sharing, Lynn.

    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 Recipe #180572 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

    This made for very moist and flavorful chicken. I reduced the amount of sesame oil, as a personal preference. I also made a double batch of the marinade (reserved from raw chicken) so my husband could pour extra sauce over his rice - by itself, the sauce is REALLY tangy. Served with rice and steamed veggie medley. Thanks for posting!

    This was really tasty. I used boneless chicken breasts and let them marinade all day while I was at work. I cooked them outside (in 30 degree weather) on the grill. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used the breasts instead of thighs and didn't add the onion tops. Everyone enjoyed this and it was simple to put together.
