So easy and really delicious. I did the pan-fried version. The sauce is very rich and tasty. I am thinking this would work with pork tenderloin also.

Very, very good! I baked my chicken, and when I thickened the sauce with the cornstarch it turned out too thick so I had to add more water, but saved it in the end. I wanted to grill, but the skies opened up and put out my fire!! Easy and delicious....thanks for sharing. Made for FYC tag game!

I love Teriyaki Chicken and this one certainly didn't disappoint me in the least!! This is so simple and quick, you don't need to ever buy it at the store. Next time I might try omitting the sugar and subbing pineapple juice for a natural sweetness (better for the blood sugars for me). We are still having to temps in the mid to high 80's so we grilled the chicken and I then served it with fried rice and green beans, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe QueenBea!!
