“Teriyaki and lemon based chicken. This recipe my Mom used to make is to die for. Watch out - it's highly addictive!! You are guaranteed to overeat! :-) We always double the sauce amounts to make extra sauce (details below), and then thicken it with a little cornstarch. Wonderful served with sugar pea pods. Add pineapple for dessert!”
3-6 chicken breasts
