Teriyaki Chicken
1 pound chicken breasts, bone in or boneless
1 cup teriyaki baste and glaze
½ cup barbeque sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic
Mix all ingredients. Add chicken to marinade (if grilling, reserve about ½ cup marinade) and work the sauce all over the chicken breasts, coating all pieces and sides.
Allow to marinade for at least an hour and up to 6 hours.
Grill chicken or bake at 375 for 45 minutes. For grilling, drain off most of the marinade before putting chicken on the grill (just drip it off by shaking the chicken). This prevents burning. During the last few minutes of cooking, using a poultry brush and or spoon and brush the chicken on each side with reserved marinade. Continue grilling and serve warm.
