Chicken Teriyaki

We recently went out to a Japanese restaurant.  "Mom, you need to make this for us", my choir sang.  Challenge accepted, off to the kitchen in search of my Japanese cookbooks.  Recipes needed include - chicken teriyaki, tempura and vegetable rolls.
Well I messed up this recipe but the results were spectacular.  A make again with thumbs up  given after the first bite as well as fighting for the left overs before dinner was over.
