Everyone needs a fabulous Teriyaki Marinade recipe in their cooking life. I don’t like to always use the words “The BEST’ when it comes to a recipe, because that gets boring when you see it over and over and over from every food blogger out there, but there are about ten times on this website that I have. When I do, let me assure you, the recipe is always the best that I have ever tasted! With that said, this actually is THE BEST Teriyaki Marinade Recipe!
This all came about thanks to my need for a Copy Cat Red Robin’s Teriyaki Chicken Burger. I actually hadn’t tried the burger, I was just craving a chicken teriyaki burger and remembered seeing it on the menu one time.
Then I realized that I don’t actually have a tried and true teriyaki marinade recipe. Bear with me, my children are just venturing into the land of normal eating, so teriyaki marinade isn’t really something I worried about before.
Thanks to the burger however, I now have an excellent teriyaki marinade that I will use time and time again!
Those are my chicken burgers marinading for the burgers, which by the way ARE AMAZING! I pounded them flat, marinated them and wowza. You could have eaten these plain without turning them into a burger. Holy Dinah you guys, these babies were the best burgers I ate all summer. Even my son ate them ( the renowned chicken hater) and couldn’t stop telling me how awesome they were.
