Healthy Teriyaki Sauce

So many of the shop bought Teriyaki Sauces are full of sugar and not much else. This is a super simple way of doing your own at home! We used ours to marinade chicken legs and then baked them for 30 mins and served them with sesame seeds, steamed vegetables and rice. YUM!

2. Heat over medium heat until honey is dissolved.
