Total Time 1 hr 20 mins


  • 1 Shallow Container
  • 1 Frying Pan
  • 1 Tongs


  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • ¼ Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce
  • 4-6 Chicken Thighs


  • Mix all of the ingredients except the chicken in a bowl, plastic container, or zipper lock baggie. Mix until combined.
  • Add the chicken to the container and turn to coat. Seal and let marinade for 30-60 minutes, or however long you like. If marinading longer than an hour, flip or turn the chicken occasionally.
  • Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil.
  • Add the chicken thighs in a single layer. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Flip the chicken and continue cooking another 5 or so minutes. The internal temperature should be 160°F or higher.
  • Remove the chicken and set on a plate to rest. Add the remaining marinade to the pan. Turn the heat to medium-high to reduce the sauce until it thickens, stirring continually to prevent burning.
  • Turn off the heat and add the chicken, turning to coat in the thickened sauce. Plate, add your favorite side, and enjoy!
