Lemon Chicken Teriyaki

I spent two days digging through piles of old magazines and recipe clippings trying to find this recipe. My friend Jenny had made a version she found in an old Taste of Home cooking school edition, only she had made her own changes to the recipe. I happened to have the same issue of the magazine, and had written down Jenny's changes in the margin. I finally found that old clipping. This is a great recipe, really fast. I serve this with some stir fried veggies on the side. There are very few recipes I make that I use the bottled lemon juice concentrate in vs fresh, this is one of them. It just isn't the same using fresh lemon juice. This is very much an American-Asian fusion dish, not an authentic Japanese style teriyaki.
