How To Make This 5 Star Grilled Teriyaki Chicken:
This is one of the easiest marinades you can make, but will make your chicken taste AMAZING.
Start by trimming the fat off the chicken and then placing it in a large ziplock bag.
Then, pour in the lemon juice, minced garlic, and the sesame oil into the ziplock bag with the chicken.
Once you have it all in there, reseal the bag and give it a little shake to mix everything up and make sure the chicken is coated in the marinade.
Now, just place the ziplock bag in the fridge for at least 4-8 hours (2 hours bare minimum) but for the best flavor, overnight.
When you are ready to cook the chicken, preheat the grill.
Then, remove the chicken from the bag of marinade and immediately discard the remaining marinade to avoid foodborne illnesses.
Once the grill is ready, place the chicken breast on the grill and cook it on each side for 6-8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
To be sure, you can use a meat thermometer and place it in the thickest part of the chicken and make sure it reads at least 165 degrees fahrenheit.
