Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 4 slices Muenster or Swiss cheese

  2. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Cook chicken in remaining oil in the same skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.

Can you freeze Smothered Teriyaki Chicken Breasts?

Before adding cheese, cool chicken and mushroom sauce. Place in freezer containers and top with mushroom sauce. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Slowly heat chicken through in a covered skillet until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth or water if necessary. Top with cheese and proceed as directed.
