    This came out awesome. Added some minced garlic, some onions, pepper, and red pepper flakes to give it a bit more flavor

    Made it. Intruduced a few minor changes. LOVED IT. A definite make again recipe.
    I also added extra brown sugar (triple the directions) and it was great over rice or pasta.

    I added a little extra brown sugar based off others’ comments and it was still pretty salty. Still delicious but I think I’ll add even more brown sugar next time.

    It was good and easy to make but lacked a little flavor so I added a little honey, a large cloves of minced garlic, and some crushed red pepper to give it a little extra taste

    Loved it! A bit salty for my brother however, maybe less soy sauce

    Super easy very tasty will use a soy sauce with less salt next time and a tad less corn starch you could taste the grittiness of the corn starch and the soy sauce makes it very salty

    This was easy to make and I already had the ingredients. The kids liked it and it has been approved to be repeated. The chicken did not shred for me as it did for other reviewers but it may if left in cooker too long or if pieces are not thick (I used chicken breasts that were fairly thick). I also found the sauce did not taste like authentic teriyaki to me (not that the kids care).

    It was very easy to make. Be sure to use the proper knife when trying to cut the chicken so that it cuts into chunks instead of shreds.

    I would add less soy sauce and more brown sugar. I like it more sweet and the way it was, it was too salty.
    I used chicken thighs The recipe said to cook for 13 minutes Well the chicken was way too tender to cut up into pieces It ended up being shredded chicken teriyaki The sauce was good but disappointed with the chicken
