Teriyaki Grilled Chicken – no more bottled teriyaki sauce! This marinade is so easy and super delicious! Soy sauce, water, sugar, worcestershire, vinegar, oil, onion and garlic. Can use on pork or steak too. Everyone loved this – even our picky eaters! I keep a jar of the marinade in the fridge for a quick and easy kid friendly weeknight meal!
I came across this recipe for a homemade Teriyaki Grilled Chicken in one of my new favorite cookbooks and decided to give it a try. It only has a few simple ingredients and tasted incredible! This recipe finally made me a fan of teriyaki chicken!!
The Teriyaki marinade only took a minute to make. I actually have everything in the pantry for this marinade. I let the chicken hang out in the fridge overnight and we grilled it for lunch. SO good! It smelled incredible while cooking on the grill. We used this marinade on chicken, but it would also be great with pork or beef. We are going to give it a try on some skirt steak this weekend.
