WebMD Recipe from

Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, garlic and ginger combine in this teriyaki-inspired marinade for grilled chicken. Try it with pork chops if you prefer. Grill fresh pineapple slices and asparagus alongside for simple side dishes.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours
  • 1/2   cup
    soy sauce, reduced-sodium
  • 1/4   cup
    sake, or mirin
  • 2   tablespoons
    light brown sugar
  • 2   cloves
    garlic, minced
  • 1   tablespoon
    fresh ginger, minced
  • 1-1 1/4   pounds
    boneless, skinless chicken breast
  1. Whisk soy sauce, sake (or mirin), brown sugar, garlic and ginger in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Place chicken in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 12 hours. Remove from the marinade and pat dry.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high or position a rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
  4. To grill: Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 8 minutes per side.
  5. To broil: Line a broiler pan (or baking sheet) with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken on the foil. Broil, watching carefully and turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 15 minutes total.
