Teriyaki Chicken

I love teriyaki, anything and everything teriyaki! My friend Amber made teriyaki chicken a while back and I knew I had to make it, come on it's teriyaki. I made it tonight. I made 2 changes to the recipe, I cubed my meat, and marinated in store bought teriyaki marinate for the day, then marinated for another hour in the homemade marinate like the recipe stated. I served with some white rice.

Overall this was very good, it had a little bit of a kick to it, which I am not exactly sure where that came from.

Teriyaki Chicken (From: Krashed24 & Allrecipes)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 clove garlic, minced (I used minced garlic about a tablespoon and half)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 2 breasts cubed)

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground black pepper. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles. Let sauce cool.

Pour cooled sauce into bottom of greased 9x13 casserole dish. Dip one side of each chicken piece into the sauce and then place piece, sauce dipped side up, into the pan. Let marinate in fridge for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until internal temp is 165 degrees. Baste the chicken with sauce every 10 minutes during cooking

Glad that you enjoyed it. I wonder where that spice came from. Maybe it was the store bought marinade.
