This Lemon Teriyaki Chicken is super easy and great for a week night meal, especially if you work and don't have a lot of time. If you can find time to marinate the chicken before you leave the house it will be all ready to cook when you get home! If you find you are really short on time in the mornings, try prepping the marinade in the zip style bag the night before and keep it in the refrigerator, that way in the morning all you have to do is place the chicken in the bag and you're done for the morning.
Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes. Baking Time: 45 minutes
½ Cup lemon juice(about 2 lemons)
½ Cup soy sauce
¼ Cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons water
2 garlic cloves chopped
½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or up to 3 pounds)
Add the first 7 ingredients together in zip style bag and mix together. Add chicken and seal the bag well. Place the bag in a bowl or baking dish and refrigerate at least 6 hours. When ready to bake, pour the chicken and all of the marinade into an ungreased casserole dish and bake in an oven preheated to 350'F for approximately 45 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165'F.
