  1. To make the marinade, mix together all the ingredients in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Using a sharp pointed knife or skewer, poke the chicken all over. Add to the bowl with the marinade, ensuring that the chicken is well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  3. Heat the barbecue or charcoal grill until hot. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserving the marinade), and grill, skin-side up for 15-20 minutes over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned all over. Transfer to a plate, and leave to rest in a warm place for a few minutes while preparing the teriyaki sauce.
  4. Put the reserved marinade in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, and continue boiling until it thickens. Cut the chicken breasts into slices, and serve with the hot teriyaki sauce poured over them.
