Summer is a great time for firing up the grill, so I wanted to bring you a delicious recipe to enjoy. I’m a big fan of chicken teriyaki, but store bought teriyaki sauce is full of high fructose corn syrup and preservatives. No thanks! For my teriyaki sauce I used coconut aminos. If you aren’t sure what coconut aminos is then you should definitely read this post and pick up a bottle. Seriously, I love coconut aminos! I made the switch when I stopped eating soy since it is known to disrupt hormones. I definitely didn’t need any hormone disturbances as I am trying to get my hormones back in balance. I ended up loving the taste so much more than soy sauce. It’s taste is slightly sweeter and I love to use it in sauces, marinades, and salad dressings.
Have you tried coconut aminos yet? Let me know what you think!
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2/3 cup coconut aminos (a soy free version of soy sauce)
- 2 Tbsp equivalent sweetener (I used Swerve or use honey for Paleo)
- 2 tsp ground ginger (or 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup chicken bone broth
- Grill the chicken breast for 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
- Combine all of the ingredients except the chicken in a sauce pan over medium high heat.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and allow to boil for 5-7 minutes (stirring occasionally) or until the mixture has reduced and thickened.
- Remove from heat.
- Coat the chicken with the teriyaki sauce and serve
