Teriyaki Glazed Chicken is an easy, delicious baked chicken dish with a sauce that perfectly balances the sweet, spicy, and salty Asian flavors.
I was staring at a package of chicken tenders in the refrigerator trying to figure out a new, delicious, easy yet different way to fix them. I knew I wanted to bake them.
Since I had soy sauce, sriracha, garlic, and ginger on hand, I decided to make a baked Teriyaki Glazed Chicken.
And the result tasted amazing! The key is balancing the sweet, spicy, and salty flavors of the sauce. You may wish to adjust the sugar to make it either sweeter (or less sweet) or adjust the sriracha to either make it spicier or less spicy based on your preferences.
This made a perfect lunch with a vegetable and rice.
