Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken is an easy to make six ingredient recipe. 

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken is a recipe that my sisters and I have made for years. We have probably been making it for close to twenty-five years. 

I think one of my sisters tried the recipe first and then she shared it with the rest of us. 

This chicken recipe is a tried and true favorite in our family. Years ago I shared the oven version of teriyaki chicken, but I have never shared the grilled version.

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken is the same basic recipe with a few small changes. 

One of the things that I love about this chicken recipe is that you can put all the ingredients together and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or all day. 

You can make it ahead of time and it will be ready to put on the grill at dinnertime.

Ingredients Needed

  • soy sauce or gluten free soy sauce
  • vegetable oil
  • brown sugar
  • ground ginger
  • garlic powder
  • 2 pounds chicken tenders 

Can I freeze the chicken in the marinade? 

Yes, this grilled teriyaki chicken freezes great. I have frozen it many times. I place the marinade and the chicken in a ziplock bag and freeze it. Take it out of the freezer and place it in the fridge to defrost. Grill or bake it in the oven. 

How should I use the leftovers? 

Grilled teriyaki chicken is great leftover. I always make extra for lunches later in the week. You can use it for sandwiches, on a green salad, or in a pasta salad. We like to eat it cold or reheated just as it is or freeze the cooked chicken for easy lunches.
