5-Star Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts (chicken tenders and thighs work too)
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Place chicken, teriyaki sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and sesame oil in a large ziploc bag. Close bag and shake to thoroughly coat the chicken. Place chicken in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours (I sometimes even marinate it overnight), turning the bag once or twice throughout the day to make sure the chicken is marinating evenly.
When ready to cook, turn the grill on to high heat.
Remove chicken from bag and immediately throw away any remaining marinade. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.
I served this with Mom’s Potato Salad and Grilled Zucchini.
