How healthy is Teriyaki Chicken?

Teriyaki Chicken isn’t the healthiest depending on how it is prepared. Even though it can be a good source of protein, it can be high in calories, fat, and sodium. They can be made healthier with healthier ingredients and should be consumed in moderation. Pair your Teriyaki Chicken recipe with nutrient-dense foods like broccoli or green beans.

How do you thicken Teriyaki Sauce:

In order to thicken your teriyaki sauce, you can add a bit more cornstarch. Cornstarch isn’t the healthiest option so use in moderation if need be. You can add a bit of whole wheat flour if you already used some cornstarch.  I used about half a teaspoon for this recipe but if the consistency isn’t thick enough for you, then add about 1 teaspoon instead.

    I only see a need for one tablespoon of the sesame oil in the recipe. Am I missing something? I love this recipe, but I was always curious!
