My son loves Chicken Teriyaki from a Japanese Restaurant we go to. I hate spending money eating out, and I could make it at home if I only knew how to make the thick teriyaki sauce they put on it. When I see Teriyaki sauce in a bottle at the store, it looks thin and runny. Does anyone know how to make it like the restaurants do?

You can buy the Teriyaki sauce from the store. To thicken it up just add flour a bit at a time until it is the consistency that you like.

Thanks, I'll try that. I need it to taste just like the kind in the restaurants though or he won't like it. Lol. I'll let you know if it works.

I love teriyaki chicken too, but unfortunately I don't know how to make the sauce either, but I would suggest looking on www.foodnetwork.com. Whenever I am looking for a recipe that I can't find anywhere else I try there and I usually have very good luck.
