This is a fantastic dinner for any night of the week that packs a lot of flavor and won't break the bank. Our Penny-Pinching Teriyaki Chicken will filly your belly without emptying your pockets!

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken thighs, skinned if desired
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

What to Do

  1. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well and add to chicken. Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator about 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain chicken, reserving marinade.
  3. Coat a grill pan or skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken over medium heat 15 to 18 minutes, or until no longer pink in center, turning occasionally.
  4. In a small saucepan over high heat, boil reserved marinade 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon over chicken and serve immediately.

Just a Suggestion!

  • We love to serve this easy chicken recipe with jasmine rice. You could even top it with some sliced scallions for a fantastic finishing touch!
  • Wanna start off with a delicious Asian-style soup? We recommend our Best Noodle Soup Ever, or our easy-to-make Wonton Soup!
  • Remember! For your safety, when using marinades, never consume a marinade that has come in contact with raw poultry, meat, or seafood, nor let it come in contact with cooked food unless the marinade has been brought to a boil and boiled for at least 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Wouldn't it be safer to make more of the marinade instead of using the marinade that you had raw chicken in?? Just don't want a visit from sal and mel....

Have not made this yet. Why doesn't your page work properly?

This was both delicious and easy!

Wow i have made this dish but i had substitute the soy sauce for teriyaki sauce instead it was so delicious a must try.

It was pretty good. I found it to be way too salty so if I made it again I'd use low sodium soy sauce and probably 1/3 cup instead of the 1/2 cup stated in the recipe. I'm not sure that I would make it again, though.
