Chicken Teriyaki Tenders Variation Ideas

  • Teriyaki Sauce – We like making this Blackstone chicken teriyaki recipe with homemade sauce, but you can use store bought sauce if you prefer.

How to Make Teriyaki Chicken Tenders on Blackstone Griddle

  • Step 1 – Heat Griddle – Preheat the Blackstone grill over medium high heat approximately 400 degrees.  Spread the avocado oil onto the flat top grill and use a spatula to spread it around.

Recipe Tips

  • Checking Chicken for doneness – We use an meat thermometer to make sure that the chicken is cooked to a safe temperature. 
  • Prepare Blackstone – Make sure to preheat Blackstone and oil it with vegetable oil or avocado oil. This helps to prevent the chicken from sticking to the griddle.
  • Cooking Chicken – We recommend cooking chicken before adding on the sauce.

Can I Make this on the Stovetop?

Yes, this chicken recipe can easily be prepared indoors. You can cook the chicken in a skillet or make baked teriyaki chicken. We love making Blackstone recipes, but I am glad this one that I can easily make indoors.

If you want to prepare on the stovetop, follow the recipe as indicated and make in a cast iron skillet. If you want to bake the chicken, place the chicken on a baking sheet. Then drizzle with the homemade sauce over the top.

This easy recipe can also be prepared in your instant pot. We love using our instant pot when we have frozen chicken and need a quick meal idea.
