I like this sauce because it can use it for so many recipes, it’s as versatile as it is delicious.  I use it at least 1 a month for a traditional chicken teriyaki with rice and vegetables. It’s also an amazing as marinade on chicken, beef, and seafood.  My family loves it in stir fry noodle dishes.

I use this teryaki sauce with rice and frozen vegetables as my go-to meal when I’m in a hurry to get dinner on the table fast.  Start the rice first, then make the teryaki sauce, and then defrost the frozen vegetables in the rice ( the heat from the rice defrosts the vegetables fast).  A satisifing healthy meal on your table in less than 30 minutes.
