Teriyaki is a salty sweet sauce. It usually is made from brown sugar, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and pepper.

I made this(with low sodium soy) and served it over rice. It was pretty good and very filling but it was a little dry. I left some marinade in it while cooking but that didn't help. I wanted to pour some of the marinade over it after it was done but since the raw chicken soaked in it over night i figured that was a bad idea. What did I do wrong?

delicious and easy!! I don't know that the sodium is all that high as most of it would be from the soy sauce, but i'm more concerned with the calorie intake and this is delicious.

Soy sauce very salty I added more pineapple juice to balance the saltiness but it was very good

Soy sauce is not gluten-free. Use Tamari instead.

Be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce, most contain wheat.

this gets a "1" because it is a feature recipe for "gluten free". the ingredients should list "gluten free soy sauce" (kikkoman's is great! better tasting than regular soy).
