Teriyaki sauce is a thick glaze brushed onto meats that are baked, broiled or grilled. The base is made from soy sauce, along with sugar and other seasonings. This recipe uses monk fruit sweetener in place of the sugar for a lower calorie, healthier sauce.

How to make this recipe

1-  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2 – Mix together cornstarch, cold water, monk fruit sweetener, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic clove, ground ginger and black pepper in a small saucepan. Let the sauce simmer over low heat, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens and bubbles.

3 – Lightly spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add the chicken thighs to the pan and brush the chicken with the sauce. Flip chicken over and brush other side. 

4 – Bake for 30 minutes. Flip chicken over, brush with sauce, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Juices from chicken should run clear and the internal temperature of the chicken should be at 165 degrees.

If your chicken thighs are on the smaller side, check chicken temperature after 45 minutes of cooking, as they may be done sooner.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 36 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs, approximately 12 chicken thighs

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, cold water, monk fruit sweetener, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic clove, ground ginger and pepper. Let the sauce simmer over low heat, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens and bubbles. 
  2. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add chicken thighs to pan and brush chicken with sauce. Flip chicken over and brush other side.  
  3. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip chicken over, brush with sauce again, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Juices from chicken should run clear and the internal temperature of the chicken should be at 165 degrees. 

Notes

  • Chicken thighs are measured at 3 oz each, for a total of 36 oz.
  • The internal temperature of the chicken should be at least 165 degrees. Measure this at the thickest part of the chicken. Continue cooking until chicken reaches temperature.
  • I use the Lakanto brand for the monk fruit sweetener.
