Salt & Pepper
Homemade Teriyaki Sauce - Simple mixture of brown sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar, water, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch.

HOW TO SERVE THIS EASY DINNER RECIPE
We love this chicken served over some white rice and garnished with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
You could serve this over brown rice, cauliflower rice, or anything else you prefer.
You can get away with no sesame seeds but the green onions really are a must. They provide so much flavor!

- While chicken is cooking, combine all the teriyaki sauce ingredients in a glass measuring cup or small bowl. Whisk together.
