Lemon Teriyaki Chicken Makes a Quick Dinner

Lemon-Teriyaki-Chicken

Chicken breasts are so versatile with all the different ways that you can prepare them. I especially love to cut skinless breasts into strips and serve with a tasty glaze or sauce to serve over pasta, rice or mashed potatoes. My lemon teriyaki glazed chicken recipe is easy, delicious and more importantly won’t have you lingering in the kitchen.

The most effort that you will exert to make my lemon teriyaki glazed chicken is chopping your skinless chicken breasts into strips or pieces. I usually do this prep early in the morning and refrigerate until ready to use. This way I save time and that extra mess of cleaning up since it was taken care of early.

When you later prepare this lemon teriyaki glazed chicken recipe, you just will need to chop and mince some garlic. Other than that, you will just measure ingredients. Then brown the chicken strips and garlic before adding the ingredients of the glaze to cook until slightly thickened and finish cooking. All that is left cooking your rice, pasta or potatoes that you plan to bed the glazed chicken over.

If you are tired of eating chicken the same way, I hope that you give my recipe a try. In fact, you also might enjoy another favorite glazed chicken recipe of ours with my easy glazed chicken thighs. You just may find it becomes a new family favorite.

Lemon Teriyaki Glazed Chicken

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup sugar
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 cup soy sauce
1-1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoons of ground ginger
1 teaspoon cornstarch
3 skinless chicken breasts, but into pieces or strips
3 tablespoons of olive oil

In your skillet, add the oil and brown the chicken pieces before adding the minced garlic and continuing to cook.

Mix the cornstarch with the soy sauce until blended, then add the sugar, lemon juice, brown sugar, and the ginger that make the glaze to the skillet and cook further until thickened.

Serve over your bed of cooked rice, pasta or mashed potatoes.

ENJOY!
