This is the easiest and most delicious chicken teriyaki recipe for those who want a sauce that reminds them of takeout Chinese food, but prefer to cook at home. I served this with homemade vegetable fried rice and potstickers from my grocer's freezer.

  • Whisk together the teriyaki sauce, white wine, orange marmalade, garlic, ginger, and green onions in a bowl, and pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the skillet, reduce heat to low, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the middle, turning the chicken in the sauce several times as it cooks, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.

OMG to this is to DIE for. I used a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce and watched the chicken to make sure it didn't overcook. Otherwise simple and tasty. Even my picky teenagers had seconds! It's a keeper! Read More

This was okay. The flavor was pretty good but the sauce was too thin (read: watery.) I think I'll add some cornstarch next time to thicken it up. Read More

Top Notch As Is! For my hubby's palette however I increased the garlic to 3 cloves and halved the ginger. Additionally if you brown the chicken in sesame oil you'll really be able to taste the compliment against the orange. GREAT and EASY recipe! Read More

This was really good and easy to make. Adding a teaspoon of corn starch does help. Read More

loved that it was so easy! i would eliminate adding water or white wine next time. just the teriyaki and marmalade w/ ginger and garlic. cooked it with red bell pepper and zuchini (great coloring). i would make the sauce thicker next time it was 100% watery. Read More

This dish was delicious! I found the orange marmalade to be a bit too strong... I now substitute with apricot preserve instead and sometimes thicken with a little cornstarch. The sauce is very yummy! Read More

I forgot to add the dry white wine and it was still good. In lieu of Terriyaki sauce I just used a bit of soy sauce to taste. I also added broccoli slaw and sauted. Read More

This was very good but I may have to fine tune it to our taste. I found the sauce to be too watery. I'm going to try more browning and less wine to try to get away from that boiled chicken look and feel. However my kids LOVED it and any chicken that's not a nugget is a winner in my book. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

Needs cornstarch to thicken it up. Also added brown sugar or it was too salty. Next time I will add red pepper flakes. Read More
