    Quick and Easy Teriyaki Sauce

    Quick and Easy Teriyaki Sauce

    Photo by Foodiewife F.

    <p>One work-night evening, my son asked if I could make teriyaki chicken&#8230; only I didn&#8217;t have teriyaki sauce. I found this easy recipe on, with pantry staples that I had on hand. So, maybe this recipe doesn&#8217;t use fresh ground ginger or mirin &#8211; and isn&#8217;t exactly authentic Japanese &#8211; but I have to say that it was delicious and fulfilled my son&#8217;s wish as I glazed it onto grilled chicken. Super easy! I will never buy bottled teriyaki sauce again!</p>
