Cooking time




  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs OR chicken breast

  • Teriyaki Sauce:
  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tbs cornstarch

  • Once chicken is through marinating preheat oven to 425 degrees place chicken onto skewers bake for 18 minutes (OR you can cook on a BBQ grill adjust the cooking temperature and time)
  • After 18 minutes brush the remaining teriyaki sauce from the Tupperware on the chicken. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked
  • Enjoy over a bed of rice, sprinkle sliced green onions and sesame seeds on top!

  1. This is the best teriyaki sauce we’ve had. The fresh ginger makes a huge difference. I made the sauce from this recipe and used it for the chicken & vegetable stir fry recipe on this site, since I had some veggies to use up with dinner.

    My six year old is going through a selective eating phase and still gave this “100,000 thumbs up!” That’s the biggest number they currently think of, so it is very high praise!
    My partner also doesn’t generally like teriyaki, but he enjoyed this and had seconds.
    We will definitely be making this again!
