Easy Teriyaki Chicken

Easy recipe for teriyaki chickenI’m so excited to share a new video of a favorite dinner recipe with you…Tender chicken and peppers cooked in sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce!

The teriyaki sauce is quite simple to mix together and simmer while the chicken and peppers cook, and I’ve used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Also rather than the sugar (or cornsyrup – yuk!) in many teriyaki sauces, I’ve used some raw honey.

It’s wholesome, delicious, and the kiddos can’t get enough of it 🙂 Enjoy!

    I am new to gluten and soy free cooking. Where do you find cocoanut aminos, sake and mirin?

      Hi Denise,

      I find coconut aminos at my local healthy food store which is sprouts and I can find sake and mirin there as well but if you are having trouble finding these I also purchase them at 99 Ranch which is an asian grocery store. I hope that this helps and Happy Cooking!
