I like this recipe because there are not a lot of ingredients or steps. This is simple, delicious, healthy and kid-friendly.

First, I make the teriyaki sauce by putting 1/4 cup of soy sauce or tamari in a microwave safe bowl with 2 tablespoons mirin, 3 tablespoons honey, and 1/3 cup of water. Heat the sauce in a bowl big enough for marinating the chicken. I microwave the sauce for 20 seconds and then stir it until the honey dissolves.

Marinate a pound or two of boneless skinless chicken thighs in the sauce overnight or for as long as you can.

Heat your broiler to 550. Put the chicken on an aluminum foil lined roasting pan or deep baking pan. Pour marinade over chicken. Broil 6 inches from the heating element for 8 minutes. Flip and broil for 2 minutes. Flip again
and place pan right under heating element. Broil for one minute.

While broiling, baste the chicken with the heated marinade. Brush the sauce on at the end to serve.

Note: you are cooking the meat at a very high temperature so check on it every few minutes to make sure it isn’t burnt.
