I was looking for something new to throw over chicken breasts and somehow I came across a teriyaki chicken with home made sauce. Now I cannot for the life of me find that recipe, so in the interest of not forgetting, I am writing it down (from memory so it may not be perfect).
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup brown sugar I used coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 tbsp crushed garlic
- 1 tbsp corn or potato flour mixed with a bit of cold water to make a watery paste
In a small sauce pan, add all ingredients except corn/potato flour paste. Bring to the boil.
Lower heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes until sauce begins to reduce.
If you want a thick sauce, now is the time to add the corn/potato flour. Mix well so no lumps for.
If you want a thin sauce, leave out this step.
Serve as a dipping sauce or pour over chicken breasts, cover and bake.
