It's time to lit up your grill! Spring is officially here, which means we can have as many outdoor cookouts as we want. Griller wouldn't mind the cold, given the big, furry gorilla he is, but we humans have had to endure the low temperatures up until this moment (because, obviously, we've been grilling at the backyard all winter long).
Today we're bringing you Teriyaki Chicken, three ways. We'll use the same recipe in each case, but you'll see just how versatile this Teriyaki Chicken is when you can just put it in any dish you can possible imagine.
It's so much simpler than you think, really. All you need is boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a bottle of teriyaki sauce, and green onions and sesame for garnish. Here's the full recipe:
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle of teriyaki sauce
green onions, chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds
To a bowl, add the chicken breasts, then pour over the teriyaki sauce making sure to reserve 1/4 cup sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Start your grill and once the temperature has reached 320º F (160º C), add the chicken to the grill and cook for 4 minutes each side, making sure you get nice sear marks. Take out the chicken and baste with the remaining sauce, then garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
Serving the teriyaki chicken on top of brown or white rice and grilled veggies (our choice is broccoli, red pepper and red onion) is cool if you're aiming for a healthy Sunday lunch option. Just to mix things up every once in a while, you know. You'll need Mountain Grillers' BBQ Mesh Grill Bags for this recipe.
Okay, now we've taken the healthy option out of the way, let's get down to the more fun ways to serve this incredible teriyaki chicken you're about to grill. For this, you'll want Mountain Grillers' BBQ Grilling Kabob Skewers.
2 red tomatoes
2 red onions
Take the chicken out of the marinade and skewer it along red onion wedges, tomato and zucchini slices, and grill for about 5-6 minutes. Baste the whole kabob with teriyaki sauce once you take it out of the grill and let it rest for a couple minutes. Serve on top of white rice and a spoonful of sriracha sauce for a spicy meal.
Last but not least, here's a burger you've probably never tried before: teriyaki chicken burger. Hold on to your seat, 'cause you're about to go on one hell of a ride. Watch out, this one's addictive as hell.
1 red onion
handful of cherry tomatoes
1-2 slices edam cheese
handful of pickles
handful of cilantro leaves
Grill your teriyaki chicken as per the instructions above, then toast your buns and spread some of the leftover teriyaki sauce on both of them. Assemble the burger in the following order: a good spoonful of sriracha mayo, teriyaki chicken slice, cheese slices, thinly sliced pickles and red onions, another teriyaki chicken slice, slices of avocado, wedged cherry tomatoes and cilantro leaves.
