Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Preheat a grill for medium heat. When the grill is hot, lightly brush the grate with oil.

  • Place the chicken onto the grill with a thick coating of the marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Cook for about 10 minutes per side, or until chicken is firm and juices run clear.

Cook's Note:

I use Hellmann's® mayonnaise.

I agree that this recipe makes very very moist chicken. I used boneless chicken tenders and added ground red pepper and regular black pepper to the marinade. I also cooked the tenders in a skillet covered with all the extra marinade. :-) Read More

I didn't really care for this. My daughters wouldn't eat it. Maybe I needed to do something differently but I am not in a hurry to make it again. The flavor was almost overwhelming...sorry:) Read More

I love this recipe it works well with fish too. Thicken the marinade up with flour untill it is the consistancy of frosting then use it as a coating when baking whole or cut up chicken. It seals in the juices and adds yummy teriyaki flavor. Read More

This recipe resulted in chicken that was very, very moist and tender. The flavor was not exceptional, and next time I will add some garlic powder at least. But I WIll try it again. My daughter loved it. My husband said it was good. I thought it was good, but not great. Read More

This is a great recipe that is really easy to make. I put my chicken in the marinade overnight and add some fresh cracked pepper and some garlic powder (not salt as you don't want it too salty). I also like to add a little brown sugar to sweeten it and some crushed red pepper for a little heat. This is really a great entree that is quick and my children really enjoy it. I have also cut the chicken into chunks and cooked them then speared them with a toothpick and served with some peanut satay sauce on the side for a really quick and filling appetizer. Read More

I just made this for dinner tonight and I didn't have any soy sauce so I used teriyaki marinade instead and it turned out wonderful. My husband and 2 picky boys LOVED it. Thank You!!!! Read More

I cooked this in a covered skillet due to the weather it turned out great. After reading reviews I made mine with garlic powder and cayenne pepper great touch! Read More

This sauce was just what I was looking for. Its not to strong of a taste but gave the chicken a great tenderness and flavor. I actually used this for Philly Chicken Cheesesteak sandwiches and it made them turn out wonderful! I have made philly chicken sandwiches before but couldnt find the right sauce to make them taste right. I cut the chicken up and marinated for about 2 hours before I sauteed them. I will always be using this sauce in the future! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Very good! I used cubed chicken breast marinated it for 1 hour and cooked it in a little olive oil on the stovetop instead of grilling it. It was so good I did the same thing with salmon. Kids loved it over white rice. Read More
