WE LOVE Super Easy Chicken Teriyaki! Made in just minutes and delicious for the entire family. This easy recipe for Teriyaki Chicken is a family favorite!

We built our house and love where we live. Our neighborhood feels safe and quiet, and our neighbors are friendly. There are lots of kids and dogs running around at all times. We are only lacking one thing. QUALITY TAKEOUT. We haven’t found any that we love, and are left without a clue where to order on those lazy Netflix nights. I miss living in the city for that reason and that reason only.

It’s forced me to figure out how to make my favorites at home, and I’ve been pleased to find out just how easy some of our go-tos really are to make. Pizza can be made in a flash, Cashew Chicken can be made in a slow cooker, and now Chicken Teriyaki can be made in minutes. It’s not a bad compromise at all!

This easy chicken teriyaki recipe is, dare I say, BETTER than takeout!

You can't beat super easy. I love the teriyaki recipe too which I'll be able to use with other things too.

How much sugar in the heated portion -- the computer printed out weird numbrs

    Hey Leslie, thank you for pointing that out! I switched to a new recipe card provider yesterday and we are still working out some kinks. I think I have it fixed now. Thanks for stopping by!
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer
My comment is being so difficult today! Cannot wait for my new router. However, this recipe, I don't see why you would want takeout! It looks amazing!! PS: I see you mentioned you switched recipe card providers. Where it says teriyaki sauce, it is showing code ([u]FOR TERIYAKI SAUCE[/u]) You can delete this if you like :)

Ohhh! We love Asian food, I usually make it about once a week. I rarely do chicken teriyaki though, I have got to add this one to the rotation!
Laura | Petite Allergy Treats
Yum! I love easy Asian dinners. I bet this would work great with other meat like pork. Can't wait to try this!
Rosi
Sounds delicious, and I will be making it after my next trip to the grocery store. Just one question, how much sauce should be reserved for serving? Thanks for your reply and your great recipes!
    Becky Hardin
    It really just depends on how saucy you like things :) I always make a bit extra because I also think it helps with reheating. Hope you love the recipe! Thanks for saying hi!!
