Baked Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

I love teriyaki chicken, but I am pretty picky when it comes to store bought teriyaki sauce.  It usually tastes so salty to me!  I decided to make my own at home and it is my favorite teriyaki sauce yet!  This dinner so easy to throw together and tastes amazing!

  1. Hi! I was just wondering if the garlic measurement was a typo? I made this dinner tonight and the garlic flavor was too stong. I used dried minced garlic, should I have adjusted the amount because I used dried? Thank you!! Besides the garlic it seemed great!
