Chicken Teriyaki is a very popular Japanese food in the US. You can get it at the smallest Japanese restaurant in any town today.

Teriyaki means “grilled with shine,” and it is a method of cooking meat and fish. Sugar in teriyaki sauce gives a shine to the food which makes it not only tasty, but also looks more appetizing.

It's easy to make teriyaki sauce. Add more sugar if you like a sweeter taste or more soy sauce for saltiness.
