Expert Tips

*To broil chicken breasts, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning once and adding pineapple to pan during last 5 minutes of cooking time.

The teriyaki baste and glaze is a thick mixture that gives foods a nice glaze. Teriyaki marinade is thinner; it flavors but does not glaze foods. Use the thicker, richer baste and glaze for this recipe.
