Chicken Teriyaki Sugar-Free Sauce Ingredients

This is the easiest keto teriyaki sauce blend you can make at home! It needs only pantry staples, and it bursts with flavor. You’ll need:

  • Low-sodium soy sauce – If you’re looking for a gluten-free sauce use Tamari or Coconut Aminos for a soy-free alternative.
  • Brown sugar substitute – I love to use a brown sugar alternative to replace granulated sugar that’s usually in teriyaki sauce which balances the taste.
  • Rice vinegar
  • Sesame oil
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Xanthan Gum
