Chicken Teriyaki

Chicken Teriyaki

Now this is what I like to call a 30 minute meal… Perhaps even a 20 minute meal. Grilled chicken teriyaki, served with steamed jasmine rice and shelled edamame. Its a great healthy dinner that takes up maybe 5 minutes of your time to prepare. This is the dinner I make when I’m too tired to cook, and have no desire to go out to eat. I probably make this two or three times a month.

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki

2 chicken breasts
salt
pepper
1 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp store bought teriyaki glaze

1. Preheat grill. Pound out chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness, or with a sharp knife, slice into the thickest part of the breast, and open like a book. This helps the chicken cook evenly and much faster.

2. Season chicken with salt and pepper and coat lightly with olive oil. Grill until almost done, and brush with the teriyaki in the last 5 minutes.

Note: This can also be cooked on a grill pan or even broiled on the oven.

Note #2: This is even quicker if you buythinly sliced chicken breast pieces.
