I have a chicken recipe that is amazing and calls for teriyaki sauce. So I’m left making it. Each and every time. But you know what? Its easy and I have everything that I need on hand at all times. You just might too.

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder (optional)

How to Make this Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

In a small sauce pan bring the soy sauce and sugar to a boil, add in garlic powder if you’d like.

In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and water.

Add the cornstarch mix into the sauce pan and whisk thoroughly. Reduce heat, and continue to stir until it reduces.

It will thicken up nicely.

Use it to drizzle over chicken, or for cooking and baking with as I often do. It is delicious over rice, coming from a person who detests white rice in a family of people who love it.
