  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish


  1. In a bowl, whisk together teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a zip-top bag and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan. In a separate small bowl, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens.
  5. Brush the thickened teriyaki sauce onto the grilled chicken during the last few minutes of cooking.
  6. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy your Sweet & Tangy Teriyaki Chicken!
