Because Mark is on a diet and he eats mostly chicken, not to mention he easily grows tired of a certain dish, and add the fact that I still need to maintain his spot as my number one fan when it comes to cooking (haha!), it's really a challenge for me to come up with varieties of healthy chicken dishes for him.

Good thing I was able to pull it off with this dish. I thought of cooking Chicken Teriyaki because I remembered how Mark and I would always eat this dish at Teriyaki Boy before or after our movie dates when we were still in the Philippines.

It was my first time to try cooking this dish and I'm glad that it wasn't a miss. I never thought that cooking chicken teriyaki would be as easy as 1, 2, 3! :D

I'm still glad that Mark once again enjoyed this dish (and that he still is my number one fan haha!). He loved it that he even had the rest of the chicken packed for his baon to work. :D

I'll definitely try cooking the chicken on the grill next time. I'm sure it would be as delicious! :D
