Juicy, tender chicken in an amazing sweet gingery sauce. This sauce is better than any store-bought teriyaki and is so easy to make at home while still feeling like you got takeout. What I love about this recipe is it reminds me of weekends Drew and I would order take out (usually chicken & vegetables over a big bowl of rice) and curl up on our couch watching an episode of Gilmore Girls. We both love a good sauce-y chicken with lots of vegetables over rice or quinoa.

How To Make Teriyaki Chicken (from scratch)
Make the sauce
Whisk all of teriyaki sauce ingredients together in a bowl or liquid measuring cup and set aside.

When sauce is heated with the cooked chicken it will thicken and become so sticky and delicious!
