Dive into the flavors of Hawaii with this easy-to-follow recipe for succulent Teriyaki Chicken. Perfectly marinated and grilled to perfection!


  • 3 pounds chicken thighs (boneless, skinless)
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 35 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 ginger root, 2-3 slices (cut thin and lengthwise)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine water and soy sauce.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the liquid mixture completely.
  3. Add the sliced ginger and crushed garlic to the sauce, mixing well.
  4. Place the chicken thighs in the marinade, ensuring they are fully submerged. If necessary, adjust the marinade quantity so you can stir the meat freely.
  5. Marinate the chicken for at least 24 hours, up to 3 days, in the refrigerator.
  6. Preheat your grill to a hot temperature.
  7. Grill the marinated chicken thighs until they are thoroughly cooked, with nice grill marks on both sides.
  8. For extra tenderness, transfer the grilled chicken to a pot on the grill. Add a bit of fresh teriyaki sauce and let it steam to juicy perfection.


Ensuring your Hawaiian Style Teriyaki Chicken turns out perfectly involves marinating the chicken well in advance. The key is to give it time for the flavors to meld together. The process is straightforward: mix, marinate, and grill. Don’t skip the steaming step at the end; it locks in the moisture, making the chicken extra tender and juicy.
