Get ready to curb your hibachi cravings with a keto teriyaki sauce that will take your dishes from “wow…” to “WOW!”. Use this savory glaze to add that perfect umami flavor to so many dishes. Marinate chicken thighs, drizzle over green beans, take cauliflower rice to the next level, and more!

Hip Recipe Tips:
- This keto teriyaki sauce will thicken up after refrigerating, but to bring it back to a liquidy viscosity, just warm up in the microwave for 5-10 seconds and it will be ready to be used again.
- You can opt to skip the stovetop and make the sauce in the microwave. Just add ingredients to a small microwavable bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute.
- Kick it up a notch! If you prefer to have a bit of spice in your sauce, add in 1/4 or 1/2 tsp of red pepper chili flakes, depending on your heat preference.
- Need an easy meal idea using this sauce? Sauté chicken thighs or breasts cut into cubes in the skillet with asparagus, green beans, and red onion. Then pour 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce over and let simmer for 2 minutes. Delish!
