Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 12 minutes
Total: 27 minutes



  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish


  1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and sesame oil to make the teriyaki sauce.

  2. Place chicken breasts in a ziplock bag and pour half of the teriyaki sauce over them. Reserve the remaining sauce for basting.

  3. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.

  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.

  6. Grill the chicken for about 6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

  7. While the chicken is grilling, in a small saucepan, whisk together cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually add the reserved teriyaki sauce and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until the sauce thickens.

  8. Baste the chicken with the thickened teriyaki sauce during the last few minutes of grilling.

  9. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

  10. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.

  11. Serve hot and enjoy!
