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.

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Super Easy Grilled Chicken Teriyaki

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine 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.
  2. Preheat grill on medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill grate (before it gets too hot).
  3. Remove chicken, discarding marinade, and place on the grill.
  4. Grill 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.)
