    Delicious! I substituted low sodium soy sauce for teriyaki sauce and it was fabulous.

    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.

    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 !

    Delicious flavor and easy to make - my family loved it! I cut the leftover chicken (there was only 1 piece!) in thin slices and used it on top of a salad for lunch the next day.)
