Super Easy Grilled Chicken Teriyaki

This makes for a quick and flavorful meal. Just marinate the chicken earlier in the day (I have marinated it for only 1 hour and it was still very flavorful) and pop it on the grill for a quick dinner. I like to serve this over brown rice. You could also grill some veggies. Enjoy! Prep time does not include marinating.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a really simple way to jazz up a plain old teriyaki sauce. Magic happens when the chicken marinates. This flavorful chicken is moist and a quick and easy weeknight meal. So much better than takeout. Add steamed rice, a veggie and dinner is served.

Ingredients

4
chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
1 c
teriyaki sauce
1/4 c
lemon juice, fresh
2 tsp
garlic, minced
2 tsp
sesame oil

Step-By-Step

1Combine the teriyaki sauce, lemon juice, garlic and sesame oil in a large Ziploc bag. Add the chicken. Shake to coat. Place in the refrigerator for 1-12 hours to marinate, turning every so often.
2Preheat grill on medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill grate (before it gets too hot).
3Remove chicken, discarding marinade, and place on the grill.
4Grill for about 6-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. (This could take even less time depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.)
