How to cook the teriyaki chicken
When you are ready to grill the chicken teriyaki, preheat the grill to about 335 degrees. It's best to cook it a little slower than normal so the sugar in the marinade doesn't burn.
Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Turn the chicken over and cook for another 5-7 min. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
Take the chicken off the grill and let it sit on a platter for about 5 minutes to cool a little and let the juices re-distribute in the chicken.
if you'd like sauce for your teriyaki chicken, take the leftover marinade and strain the green onions out of it. Pout the marinade into a saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Drizzle a little sauce over the grilled teriyaki chicken or reserve a little to enjoy with rice or steamed veggies. Enjoy!
