Coach T's Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Who can resist the sweet taste of teriyaki chicken married with just the right amount of salt, and balanced with hints of ginger?
Before starting my THM journey, I would often purchased pre-made teriyaki marinades, but the high fructose corn syrup and added sugar made them a no-go when I started the plan.
I have been experimenting with making my own sauce with on-plan ingredients, and I think I finally got it right.
When I first made this recipe, I used stevia, but we weren't fans. I swapped out Gentle sweet for the stevia and it was golden.
However, everyone's taste buds are different, so I provide the equivalent for other sweeteners as well.
Depending on the cut of chicken that you use, this could work for a THM-S meal or THM-FP.
