Teriyaki Lemon Chicken (Quick and Easy)

Teriyaki and lemon based chicken. This recipe my Mom used to make is to die for. Watch out - it's highly addictive!! You are guaranteed to overeat! :-) We always double the sauce amounts to make extra sauce (details below), and then thicken it with a little cornstarch. Wonderful served with sugar pea pods. Add pineapple for dessert!

    My family all thought this was great! I made the recipe as printed, but without doubling the sauce because I didn't have enough teriyaki sauce on hand. I definitely could have used more sauce! Thank you for an easy, delicious meal.
