Teriyaki Grilled Chicken

Here’s a super recipe you can use with any chicken pieces you like, with or without skin. Plan ahead to marinate chicken overnight for wonderful flavor. Leftovers are fabulous the next day in a salad. Jennifer Nichols, Tuscon, Arizona

    Our son typically does not care for chicken but he loved this! Needless to say we will be making this often!

    I thought this was okay, somewhat lacking in flavor.

    Pretty good. I substituted some of the honey for maple syrup because I didn't have enough honey. Flavor came out great. Next time I will add a good built of salt to the marinade, more garlic, more ginger, and some brown sugar. Overall a great recipe, and so much better for you that store bought marinades!

    This chicken was delicious! It was one of several grilled entrees I made for a recent BBQ get-together and everyone loved it! I used both chicken breasts and thighs and they turned out juicy and flavorful. Will definitely be making this again!
