 I googled this.  Hope it helps!

About Soy Sauce

Soy sauce is a fermented and aged condiment brewed from wheat, soybeans, water and salt, although some recipes omit the wheat. Soy sauce contains eight to 10 calories per tablespoon, 1 to 2 grams of carbohydrate, up to 1 gram of protein and 900 to 930 milligrams of sodium, depending on the brand.

About Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki sauce uses soy sauce as a base, with many other ingredients added, including ginger and other spices, wine, vinegar and a sweetener such as sugar, corn syrup or honey. Teriyaki sauce contains about 15 calories per tablespoon, 2 to 2.8 grams of carbohydrates, mostly in the form of sugar, 1 gram of protein and 610 to 690 milligrams of sodium.

Differences

Teriyaki sauce is thicker, sweeter and spicier than soy sauce, so it will impart a different flavor and texture to recipes if substituted for soy sauce. In addition, depending on the amount used in your recipe, the calorie count per serving may be significantly higher. However, if you need to limit the amount of sodium in your diet, teriyaki sauce has about 25 percent less sodium than soy sauce, depending on the brand.

Soy Sauce Replacement

Teriyaki sauce is not a good replacement for soy sauce unless you're preparing a recipe that includes ginger and sugar or honey, in which case teriyaki sauce may make an acceptable substitute. Otherwise, teriyaki sauce is too sweet and thick to replace soy sauce without affecting the taste of the recipe significantly. Instead, the AllRecipes website suggests replacing 1/2 cup of soy sauce with a mixture of 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon water.

It kinda tastes the same! LOL I thought it was sweeter but must have misunderstood our hibachi chef when he saidtgats the sweet sauce they used at the hibachi grill.
I added some brown sugar and it made it a lil sweeter. Thanks :)

 I haven't tried either of these, but they sound good.

      Hawaiian Chicken

2 (8 oz.) cans pineapple chunks in juice
1 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 (4 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp. salad oil
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. teriyaki sauce
2 tsp. dried chopped chives
1/4 tsp. pepper
Fresh chives for garnish

About 20 minutes before serving:

1. Drain pineapple and chunks; reserving 1/4 cup juice.

2. On waxed paper, mix flour and salt; use to coat chicken breasts.

3. In 10 inch skillet over medium heat, in hot salad oil, cook chicken breasts until golden and tender, about 10 minutes, turning once. Remove chicken breasts to a warm platter.

4. Into drippings in skillet stir honey, teriyaki sauce, dried chives, pepper and the pineapple juice. Over high heat, heat to boiling; boil for 30 seconds. Add pineapple and heat through. Pour sauce over chicken; garnish with fresh chives.

Soy sauce is usually pretty salty and teriyaki is somewhat sweet. If it calls for soy sauce, does it also call for honey, brown sugar or something sweet like that? If so, you may want to use less of that sweet element if you sub the soy with teriyaki sauce.
