Chicken Teriyaki

Still catching up, folks.  Still catching up.  Sorry about that.  I’ll get caught up eventually.

A while back though, I made Chicken Teriyaki for a movie night dinner.  I wanted to make my own teriyaki sauce because a lot of the pre-bottled stuff is too salty for my liking or it just plain tastes funny.  This was really super easy to make and only took a few minutes with ingredients that I pretty much always have anyway.  Easy enough to make my own and forget about that bottled junk!

Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauce

1.5 cups cold water
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup GF Soy Sauce or Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 tsp garlic powder
3 TBSP corn starch
1 tsp sesame oil

Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and put over medium heat on the stove. Whisk continually. Once thickened, remove from heat and serve over your choice of meat.  I’m a big fan of chicken, but grill up some thin steaks or salmon for something different!  You can also use this sauce for marinating as well.

While I really really really like this sauce, I want to play with a way of sweetening it with something like honey or pineapple juice and see if I could figure out that version as well.  Maybe one day…
