Grilled Chicken Recipes and More


Shown here is a typical Japanese style Teriyaki Chicken recipe. Teriyaki chicken can be prepared either grilled or sauteed. 

Teriyaki is a culinary technique used in Japanese cuisine. Teriyaki foods are broiled or grilled in a sweetened, thickened soy sauce marinade. Teriyaki dishes are served in most Japanese restaurants.

Favorite Teriyaki varieties include salmon, chicken, pork, lamb, and beef. Teriyaki hamburgers are also popular.
