Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Recipe

Like most people I have a tendency to use the grill a little more in the summer than any other time of year. The end of October here in upper Michigan was so nice I couldn’t resist firing up the grill. This Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Recipe put together with sweet and sour sauce is delicious. This is a great game day recipe or would probably work out really well if you are hosting a Halloween party; just double or triple as needed.

This is a low carb recipe. You have the option of leaving the skin on or removing it-I like the skin and decided to leave it on, but If you have some health concerns you may want to remove it. I think either way this is an excellent recipe. This Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Recipe is a very simple recipe to prepare, just be sure to allow enough prep time for the chicken to marinate. I started it in the morning and grilled that evening which worked out well. If you have a busy day coming up you could get it into the marinade the night before.
If you’re in the mood to party, are having a few over for a ball game, or are just in the mood to fire up the grill, give this Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Recipe a try; you and you’re guests will love it.
