Reviews for Lemon Teriyaki Chicken
"Delicious! I substituted low sodium soy sauce for teriyaki sauce and it was fabulous."
"Delicious! It had a wonderful flavor. I served it with brown rice and broccoli."
"Very good! Have made this several times ."
"I love this recipe! I wasn't sure what to make for dinner, so I was trying to look up something simple and delicious. This was perfect! I actually poured all the marinade in a zip lock with the chicken and left it in the fridge for two hours. I took it out and browned both sides of the chicken and then put them in the oven for 10 minutes, pouring the left over sauce on it."
"Easy to make and really tasty."
"Tasty! I actually grilled the chicken (sprinkled w/ lemon pepper and garlic salt) and made the sauce seperate. I used a Teriyake Garlic sauce. It was very good !"
