I used chicken breasts and scored them. I added the liquid from a can of pineapple chunks (used pineapples for another recipe; could use about 1/2 c pineapple juice instead), 1/2 t ginger, 1/8 t minced garlic, 1/4 t minced onion and marinated for several hours (turning once) before cooking. I covered the pan with foil for the whole cooking time. The meat was tender and the sauce had a good teriyaki flavor without any orange taste. There was a lot of extra sauce which was used for dipping and rice, but still might cut down sauce ingredients next time.


I used light soy sauce and boneless skinless chicken breasts and reduced the cooking time to 40 minutes (at 350) cooking 20 minutes on each side. The sauce was a little thin, but this may have been due to the light soy sauce. I ended up pouring the sauce through a strainer (like you would gravy) into a sauce pot and then thickened it with 2 Tbsp corn starch and water. The result was a terrific orange sauce/glaze that I poured over the breasts. I also made rice pilaf on the side and the sauce tasted really good with it. Next time I might try adding some orange zest to the sauce. Overall this recipe is very good.


This was really good. I don't know that I think it's quite what I expected from a 'Teriyaki Chicken' it's more like Orange chicken, but it was delicious! My company and all the children involved really enojed it. I will definitely make again since it was so good and so simple.
