  1. Mix the soy sauce, 1 cup water, maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Set aside 1/3 cup of the mixture. Place the chicken in the bag, seal, and marinate at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Place the rice in a saucepan with 2 cups water, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven broiler. Lightly grease a baking dish.
  4. Pour marinade from the bag into a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Mix in the cornstarch, and cook and stir until thickened.
  5. Place chicken in the prepared baking dish. Basting frequently with the reserved 1/3 cup marinade, broil 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Place chicken over the cooked rice, and top with boiled marinade to serve.

Perfect! By far the best chicken teriyaki I've tasted. Don't get rid of the ginger - I used 2T ginger paste, and it wasn't over-powering at all. You'll want to make a lot, because this chicken d...

My husband and I just finished having this for dinner and we loved it! I followed the recipe except for adding steamed broccoli and carrots into the sauce right before serving. We also served wa...

Great flavor! I used Mrs. Butterworth's because that's all I had, but I think real maple syrup would be a better, more distinctive flavor. I scaled this down to one serving, but I think next tim...

I loved this recipe! I didn't have all the ingredients so I substituted dark honey for the syrup, regular cooking oil for the sesame oil, and powdered ginger for the fresh. Was really quick an...

I used this recipe as a sauce for traditionally stir fried chicken. I mixed the chicken in a sherry-cornstarch mixture and stir fried it and mixed the sauce ingredients to add to it when it was ...

The whole family loved this - including the 4.5 and 1.5 year olds!

I don't know if Korean Teriyaki is supposed to be this spicy, but I was hoping for a sweet teriyaki sauce so I was disappointed. I mostly tasted the pepper. I might make it without the pepper ...
