Ordering chicken teriyaki, for me, is like asking for my tastebuds to be assaulted by a goopy mess of salt-saturated sauce and mystery chicken bites. This simple-as-can-be recipe takes the guesswork out of ordering and lets you control the amount of teriyaki your chicken will absorb.

Ginger and chili paste also give it a sophisticated kick so you can pretend to be MasterChefUniversity Champion for the day. Well done.
