Chicken Teriyaki Sauce


Chicken Teriyaki Sauce

I found this recipe and was impressed at how easy it was to make it!  I was able to use my new wok (Yay) and I was finished cooking relatively quickly.  The sauce was amazing and almost something you would get from your local restaurant.  Check out the recipe and try it! Come back and let me know if I'm crazy or if this is pretty good!
