This is an easy and tasty weeknight meal. Very little clean up required and if you make the teriyaki sauce ahead of time…this can be thrown together in under 5 minutes (minus the cooking time of course). If you are vegetarian use tofu in place of the chicken….it is all about the delicious sauce anyway.
