This is from the original copycat recipe.
I worked at subway for 8 years, I’ve been there since sweet onion sauce and the chicken teriyaki first came to be. Now that I work there no longer, it’s to expensive to get my fix everyday.
I found this recipe. It’s not precise, but it has similar flavors, textures, and sweetness to make a good substitute. The downside is you need to start buying a lot of cornsyrup to make it.

The Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich is one of Subway’s biggest new product rollouts in chain history. The sandwich is made with common ingredients: teriyaki-glazed chicken breast strips, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, and olives. But what sets it apart from all other teriyaki chicken sandwiches is Subway’s delicious Sweet Onion Sauce. You can ask for as much of the scrumptious sauce as you want on your custom-made sub at the huge sandwich chain, but you won’t get any extra to take home, even if you offer to pay. Now you can add a clone version of the sauce to your home-built sandwich masterpieces whenever you want.
