So I have a little story for you today – WAY back in the day my mom and I would go to the Outside Mall in Century City ( which is located in Los Angeles) on a pretty regular basis — we would watch movies at their AMC theater

Well after each trip we would go to this very odd food court ( the mall has a pretty new food court now) but 15 years ago there was this little hole in the wall Teriyaki quick service place – I would get a chicken rice bowl — now that Teriyaki sauce was so good ( I never really been able to replicate it again) but this recipe is pretty darn close

What I like so much about this recipe is if you switch the soy sauce with gluten free soy sauce you can make gluten free Teriyaki sauce ( which is SUPER expensive if you want to buy it in the store)

Also you should already have everything in your pantry right now!

I made the sauce and used a mason jar to save the rest to use on another recipe this week — I love when I can do that

Once the chicken is baked I brushed on more sauce — I paired this dish with green beans and rice
