Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Doesn’t that look so juicy and delicious?  It is!  A teriyaki marinade is just the trick in giving broiled chicken some flavor!

The ingredients

Ingredients:

  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts (3-4 pieces)
  • 1 (6 oz) can pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions:

  1. Mix the pineapple juice, vegetable oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium bowl.  Put the chicken in the bowl and coat with the marinade mixture.  Cover and let marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.  *I did 2 hours, but next time I think I’ll bump it up to 3*
  2. Preheat the oven broiler.  Give it about 10 minutes or enough time to preheat and get the temperature up.
  3. Place chicken on a broiler pan, top side down first.  Broil for 5-6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink and chicken is cooked.
  4. It’s important to discard the leftover marinade in the bowl since it was with the raw chicken.  If you want more sauce for dipping, just make up a fresh batch of the sauce.

Cooked chicken

The original recipe that I printed from somewhere on the internet a long time ago used a baking sheet, but you definitely should use a broiler pan.
