Ingredients for Teriyaki Chicken on Blackstone
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts – Dice the chicken into even chunks so that the pieces all cook through and cook evenly.
- Apple cider vinegar – A bit of apple cider vinegar adds a nice bite to this Blackstone chicken teriyaki recipe.
- Brown sugar – Brown sugar adds a nice glaze-like effect to the chicken in this recipe.
- Garlic cloves – Freshly minced garlic adds loads of flavor to chicken teriyaki on Blackstone. If you don’t have any fresh garlic, some garlic powder would be a tasty addition!
- Low sodium soy sauce – We recommend using low sodium soy sauce so that the dish doesn’t get too salty. You can more easily control the salt level.
- Cornstarch – Thicken up the sauce in your chicken teriyaki by using some cron starch.
- Olive oil – Avocado oil is probably the best swap for olive oil if you don’t have any! If you don’t have that, another neutral flavored oil will work.
- Sesame seeds – Add a slight crunch and a bit of a nutty flavor with some sesame seeds.
- Green onion – Chop up some fresh green onion as a flavorful garnish.
How to Make Blackstone Teriyaki Chicken
Preheat your Blackstone to a medium-high heat before starting on the chicken.
Pour olive oil onto the Blackstone and then spread it out with the back of your spatula. Add the cubed chicken to the griddle and let the bottom brown for 3-4 minutes.
Flip the chicken and continue to cook the chicken for about 3 more minutes until the internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
While the chicken cooks, whisk together the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, garlic and cornstarch in a small bowl.
Stir the sauce with the chicken and continue to cook it on the griddle until thickened. It should take about 30-60 more seconds.
Remove from the heat and sprinkle the teriyaki chicken with sesame seeds
Serve the Blackstone teriyaki chicken over rice, garnish with green onions and enjoy!

Can you burn teriyaki sauce?
Since teriyaki sauce is so sticky and sugary, it is pretty easy to burn. That’s why you need to cook the chicken thoroughly and then add the sauce. It will only take about one minute to coat the chicken in the sauce and get it to thicken up a bit more.
Should teriyaki sauce be thick or thin?
A thin sauce will more easily coat the chicken. A thick sauce will have to be warmed up too long to coat the chicken and may begin to burn and stick.
