Dinner Tonight! – Chicken Teriyaki

Pin It

“What’s for dinner . . . chicken or chicken?”  Chicken can get a little boring but this lean protein can be decorated with just about anything!  I, sometimes am just not that creative.  Here is a recipe that is a great way to dress-up plan ole’ chicken tenders!  It is also wonderful on steamed veggies!  I needed some sesame seeds to sprinkle, darn it!


I enjoy using this brand of chicken, Just Bare and also Smart Chicken.  Like I have said before, the chicken tastes wonderful!

Grate two cloves of garlic and ginger. Did you know that garlic has been shown to reduce blood pressure levels and ginger, of course, has been shown to give gastrointestinal relief and even been shown to be an anti-inflammatory; helping relieve arthritis and joint pain.


Now in a small sauce pan add 1/4 cup light soy sauce.  Add the grated garlic and ginger.

Many teriyaki recipe contain lots of sugar (I have seen up to a cup of sugar!), so I added two packets of stevia to the pot!


In a small bowl add two tablespoons of corn starch and 1/4 cup water, mix together.+ and set aside.

Meanwhile cook the chicken tenders.  I love using chicken tenders because they cook up so fast.  If I get chicken breast I will just cut them up to the size of  chicken tenders.


Bring your soy sauce mixture to a rolling boil.



Add cornstarch mixture to pot.






Chicken Teriyaki


1 lb chicken tenders

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp garlic, grated

2 tsp ginger, grated

2 pkts stevia

2 tbsp corn starch

1/4 cup water


In a grill pan, cook chicken tenders until golden brown. In a small pot, combine soy sauce, garlic, ginger and stevia.  Cook until mixture comes to a rolling boil.   Meanwhile mix together cornstarch and water and set aside.  Once soy sauce mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and add cornstarch mixture; sauce should thicken.  Add sauce to cooked chicken.   FYI – there will be plenty of sauce for future marinades.  This sauce is wonderful on vegetables too (I did this).
