Grilled Teriyaki Chicken with the best homemade teriyaki sauce. Recipe is super simple and kid friendly. A perfect weeknight dinner idea for the grill that is healthy!

  • Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1/4 C packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tb honey or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tb cornstarch
  • 1 C water
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together all the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce then heat over high heat until it simmers and thickens. Allow it to cool.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts into long strips about 1 inch wide and place in a large bowl. Add about 3/4 of the teriyaki sauce and marinade in the fridge for at least an hour, up to overnight. Save the unused sauce to finish the dish after the chicken is cooked.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the marinated chicken on the grill and allow it to cook for about 4-5 minutes before turning it over an cooking for another 3 minutes, or until completely cooked through. Place the finished chicken on a clean serving dish and drizzle over the reserved teriyaki sauce before serving.
