Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Sports, homework, overseeing chores, and more- it’s hard to find the time to make a healthy and tasty dinner so we often just grab it to go through drive thru’s or other take out options. I love recreating some of our family favorites at home like this Teriyaki Chicken Recipe. Takeout never tasted so good, or was so easy. This Asian dish doesn’t even require you to change out of your PJ’s or yoga pants and make a food run! Just a few simple ingredients and about 20 minutes is all you need to put a flavorful exotic dish on the table for your family. Give it a try on a busy weeknight and see if your family doesn’t like it better than anything you could find at the mall.
