This Teriyaki Chicken is my skillet version of the Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken recipe I shared a few months ago. Sometimes I don’t want to or forget to set my slow cooker so the quick skillet option is great to have. This dish is as easy in prep as it’s slow cooker version and most likely you have all of the ingredients on hand.
All I did was cut the chicken breast into bite size pieces, seasoned it with salt and pepper and cooked in a pan. The sweet garlic sauce is mixed in a small bowl or a measuring cup and added to the pan. It will cook and thicken quickly coating the chicken pieces with a sweet, shiny glaze that is out of this world delicious! PS: I think this will also work great with pork!
The sauce is made with brown sugar, soy sauce (I always use the low-sodium option), fresh minced garlic, ground ginger, rice or apple cider vinegar and cornstarch that helps it thicken. That’s it! Asian flavors on point! 😀
