My husband and I loved the recipe. We marinated it for 1 hour and also put 1/2 as much teriyaki sauce and it was delicious. We left 2 pieces of chicken the full 24 hours and it wasn't as tasty as the day before. I hope this helps! All in all it was really tasty. Read More

Very easy to prepare and so so results. I found the Teriyaki taste to be too strong. I only used 1/2 Cup of the Teriyaki so I can't imagine what the full amount would be!! Read More

I was hungry for chicken teriyaki so I only marinated it for about 5 hours. I didn't have sesame seed oil so I left that out. Anyway the chicken tasted great; the flavor went all through it. It was very moist and tender too. I used about 3/4 cup of teriyaki sauce and everything else in the same proportions although I had plenty of marinade for 6 chicken breast halves instead of four.

I used about 3/4 cup of teriyaki sauce with sesame seeds already in it 2 tsp. lime juice a hearty squeeze of honey from the bottle 2 tbs. minced garlic and a small can of pineapple chunks(including the juice). These were the things I had on hand (no sesame oil). I marinaded chicken tenderloin strips in this for about 2 hours. I sprayed the grill with olive oil then put the chicken and pineapple chunks on skewers and grilled them. The whole family enjoyed this yummy "chicken on a stick." Read More

Even marinated for one hour this recipe was excellent. I added some sweet thai chili sauce for a little spicy kick. I saved the marinade and stir fried it with some cooked spaghetti noodles and made a bed of the noodles for the chicken to lay on. This is definately a family favorite. Read More

This was wonderful. I used chicken leg quarters and grilled them and they were wonderful. If you don't use breasts marinate them a little longer. I will use this recipe from now on. Read More

This is delicious! I was a bit concerned about it being too salty after I read the previous reviews so I added a couple of teaspoons of white wine vinegar to the marinade and it was fine (not too salty). Read More
