  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Optional toppings: thinly sliced green onions, sesame seeds


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet or wok set over medium-high heat, heat the oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken, garlic and ginger and cook for 3 - 5 minutes or until chicken is just cooked through.
  • Add the teriyaki sauce to the pan and stir to combine until the chicken is evenly coated. Continue cooking for about 3 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and has thickened.
  • Top with green onions and sesame seeds if using and serve with steamed rice and/or vegetables.


To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute the soy sauce with tamari.
