Make easy homemade teriyaki marinade in 5 minutes! This Asian-inspired sauce flavors and tenderizes chicken, steak, pork & seafood, before cooking.
Measure soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, fresh ginger, apple cider vinegar and water into a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk until the honey is fully dissolved, and ingredients are fully combined.
NOTE: When we grill teriyaki chicken or steak outside, I set aside a few Tablespoons of the marinade BEFORE adding the meat. We then use the reserved marinade to brush on the chicken or steak while they're over the hot fire, to help keep them moist.
Pour marinade into a resealable storage bag or container with a lid. Add fresh or thawed chicken (or other meat you are marinating). Seal the bag. Use your hands to "smoosh" the bag around so the meat becomes fully covered in marinade. If using a container, cover the chicken with marinade using a spoon, or by dredging all sides in the sauce, until covered. Place a lid on the container. Refrigerate/marinate meat for length of time specified in YOUR recipe. I recommend a minimum of 30 minutes, though, for best flavor! When finished marinating, drain excess from meat, and discard the marinade that has been in contact with the raw meat.
Proceed with your recipe directions from this point forward. Enjoy!
NOTE: The caloric calculation is for the entire batch of marinade, which is enough to cover 4 chicken breasts.
