Teriyaki Chicken is one of the  most delicious ways of preparing chicken for lunch or dinner with a very quick and easy method. The chicken is first seared on medium high heat and then cooked with a spicy, sweet and salty sauce until the sauce thickens and chicken gets beautifully glazed and totally irresistible.
