My 12 year old son had to cook for a school project and chose this recipe. We used boneless chicken breasts and red peppers instead of green. We used jarred peaches as the garnish--delicious, quick, and easy!!

4 stars cause the family ate it up. I am not so sweet teriyaki type :-) . I used homemade raspberry preserves and tofu instead of chicken.

This recipe needs some help because it doesn't specify when to add the peppers. I just added them with the onions. I also added a splash of soy sauce and lots of garlic powder. With my changes I give this recipe 4 stars. For extra flavor, cook your rice with chicken broth.

I actually made this and used red pepper flakes. The sweet and hot was a big hit.

Recipe was very good with the advice of adding some cayenne pepper. Will probably make again. I don't know why people keep posting they don't know what to do with the green pepper. It says right in step 3 of the directions.

Step 3 clearly tells you to add the preserves, onion, lemon juice, ginger and "bell pepper" in medium bowl; stir until well combined. Pour over chicken, cover, and simmer 25 to 35 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Remove chicken from pan, keep warm. I am going to make this recipe and see what it tastes like. It sound absolutely wonderful and soooooo easy. Perhaps those who missed the instruction about the pepper don't know what a bell pepper is?? I will be happy to re rate this again once I make it.

Tasty! I used red peppers instead of green, since my family likes them better, and I think it went pretty well. I upped the ginger a bit but in the future I might add some cayenne pepper too, as others have suggested. My siblings liked it just fine, but my Dad and I agree it needs a bit more bite.
