Teriyaki Chicken Marinade Recipe
Looking for dinner made easy? I know I am! I actually try to use my grocery shopping day as my prep day to simplify our busy weeks. I often mix my marinade, pour it over the chicken in a freezer bag or other airtight container & freeze it. This way I can take the frozen chicken out to thaw on a busy day & it marinates as it thaws making my dinner prep one step easier.
This marinated chicken is great as a stand alone protein for your meal or on a salad. It’s also delicious served as a chicken sandwich on FlatOut® Flatbreads with your favorite veggies. We are pairing it with the traditional FlatOut® Flatbread flavor, but it also goes great on their flaxseed & whole grain flatbreads. Sandwiches are a great way to use up the leftovers.
Here is the recipe in a printable format;
- 10 oz. low sodium teriyaki marinade and sauce (Kikkoman brand)
- 6 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 large clove of garlic
- ½ cup Vidalia onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh ground ginger root
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon white pepper
Place the chicken into a gallon sized Ziploc® freezer bag.
Mix the teriyaki, pineapple juice, Vidalia onion, fresh ginger, crushed fresh garlic, onion powder, garlic powder and white pepper together.
Pour the marinade over the chicken & seal the bag. Let it set for at least three hours before cooking. You can marinate it over night or try my freezer marinating method!
Grill or broil the chicken.
My husband will tell you chicken thighs. I will tell you chicken breasts! I’ve made it both ways. When I use the chicken breast I actually like to either cut it into strips or filets; I typically pound my filets before marinating.
I almost always buy the boneless, skinless options. Why? It’s simply a timesaver, especially when it’s on sale.
