  1. In the summer we make kabobs on the grill with veggies, pineappke, and teriyaki sauce marinated chicken.

  2. I often use teriyaki sauce as a marinade for chicken breasts, and I always use it in my stir-fries and fried rice. Sometimes I’ll add it to a ground turkey meatloaf for an unexpected flavor. It’s so good!

  3. I like to marinade chicken in teriyaki sauce and garlic, bake, then serve with rice and siracha! We like to eat it also with egg rolls sometimes. It is so good.
