Chicken teriyaki is a family favorite! It’s rare to find a meal my whole family will eat, but this is one of them. It’s quick, easy and healthy to make, which is perfect. This is an easy dinner to make on a busy school night, because it only takes about 20 minutes to make.
You can’t go wrong with this sweet, garlicky dish. It’s just as good as take out, if not better.
The ingredients are simple, which is a win for me, as I usually have them in my pantry. Brown sugar, garlic, low sodium soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, ginger and cornstarch is all you need for this delicious sauce.
It’s perfect for even little members of the family.
