Teriyaki Sauce (Make It Yourself !)

Colleen Sowa


This is a helpful recipe to have around... We use it to grill meats, barbeque, bake and for many recipes that call for Teriyaki sauce.

I have been using this recipe since I was a teenager living in a tiny village that had limited selections at the grocery store.

I have used these ingredients and changed the amounts slightly when low on supplies... it works out really well.

My nephew Scott loves my Teriyaki Chicken legs and thighs... so I dedicate this to him and his health battles!
