    Quick and Easy Teriyaki Sauce

    Quick and Easy Teriyaki Sauce

    Photo by Foodiewife F.

    One work-night evening, my son asked if I could make teriyaki chicken... only I didn't have teriyaki sauce. I found this easy recipe on, with pantry staples that I had on hand. So, maybe this recipe doesn't use fresh ground ginger or mirin - and isn't exactly authentic Japanese - but I have to say that it was delicious and fulfilled my son's wish as I glazed it onto grilled chicken. Super easy! I will never buy bottled teriyaki sauce again!

    • ¼

      cup soy sauce

    • 1

      cup water

    • ½

      teaspoon ground ginger

    • ¼

      teaspoon garlic powder

    • 5

      tablespoons packed brown sugar

    • 1 to 2

      tablespoons honey

    • 2

      tablespoons cornstarch

    • ¼

      cup cold water


    Mix all but the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a sauce pan and begin heating. Whisk the cornstarch and cold water in a cup to dissolve. Add to sauce in pan. Heat until sauce thickens to desired thickness. Add water to thin if the sauce over-thickens. For a quick dinner, grill chicken and baste towards the end.
