This easy teriyaki chicken recipe has the most tender, delicious chicken coated in a sweet teriyaki sauce. Skip the takeout... this is ready in under half an hour!
Prep your chicken and add it to a large ZipLoc bag along with the cornstarch. Toss until it's coated.
Add the sauce ingredients (garlic, brown sugar, ginger, mirin, soy sauce, water) to a small bowl and stir together.
Add the oil to a skillet, along with the chicken. Give it a stir and cook it over medium-high heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside.
Pour the sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for a few more minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
I love to serve teriyaki chicken with rice. I then sprinkle the scallions on top.
