Quick Chicken Teriyaki

If you don’t have teriyaki sauce or don’t want to use store bought stuff, here’s and easy recipe. Use it as a marinade for chicken, shrimp, beef or tofu and you have a quick dinner.

  • Ingredients (for 1):
  • 1 lb. Chicken breast cut in thin strips

  • Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced (or microplane)
  • Dime sized ginger root, minced (or microplane)


Serve with rice and salad


Combine sauce ingredients. Place in a bowl with your protein of choice. Let marinate 20-30 minutes. Then, cook in a nonstick skillet until cooked through and slightly caramelized. Discard excess sauce before cooking. (It’s best to use nonstick since the sugars can make it stick to a regular pan)

Sprinkle with sesame seeds at the end if desired.
