Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken

         Teriyaki chicken is an Asian favorite for many people. You should not be afraid of making your own Teriyaki Sauce. It is not as intimidating as it seems. The best part about this Teriyaki sauce is that it can be used as both the marinade and the Teriyaki Sauce. There is no need to waste the marinade. Put it into a saucepan and bring it to a boil, then lower to a simmer. This process makes the sauce safe to use as a glaze or the sauce.

            I serve this Teriyaki Chicken with a variety of options. Not the same and not all of them at the same time. We prefer to have lo mein on the side, along with a scoop of fried rice. I also like to have some beef and broccoli once in a while with the Teriyaki.
