Baked Teriyaki Chicken

I love eating teriyaki chicken and rice, but lately I have been cutting down on eating rice, so haven’t really made Teriyaki chicken at home. But I have had a craving for some Teriyaki chicken the last few weeks, so I thought I would make it a little healthier! In the oven the teriyaki chicken went and I paired it with a salad

My daughter went for the chicken and pieces of cucumber from the salad like no body’s business LOL … This recipe will hopefully get some of you to stop buying the store bought sauce and make it at home instead with some real easy ingredients. If you don’t have the time to make it, just buy a jar and bake the yummiest teriyaki chicken, but I really do recommend you make the sauce sometime 🙂

Before we get to the recipe, just wanted to let you know that our month of giveaways is exactly a week away. If you are in New Zealand and don’t follow the blog’s facebook page … make sure you do so as I have just announced what pressie #1 is and on thursday 25/09 will be announcing pressie #2

Hope you enjoy this recipe! It’s really quick and easy to make and delicious to eat!

Summary

    Ingredients

    4 – 6 Chicken drumsticks
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup water
    1 tablespoon, plus 2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons each of garlic and ginger paste
    1/2 tablespoon cornstarch

    Steps

    1. Sesame seeds and coriander leaves for garnish if you want to make it look pretty 🙂
    2. First up lets make the sauce!
    3. In a saucepan, I put all the ingredients excluding the chicken and the cornstarch and brought it a boil on medium low. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the cornstarch and let the sauce thicken, once it has, remove from the heat
    4. Place the washed chicken in a bowl. I removed the skin, you can leave it on if you prefer it. Pour the cooled or almost cooled teriyaki sauce into the bowl, and toss well to cover the meat with the sauce. I then let it marinate in the fridge for about 20-30mins
    5. Preheat the oven to 200C
    6. Place the chicken on a baking tray and I let the chicken cook away. Don’t throw the left over marinade thats in the bowl, I just basted the meat a few times while it was in the oven
    7. ish minutes later the chicken was done. It smelt yummy and was pretty juicy and not dry (which is great!)
    8. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish
    9. I made a salad to go with it. A veggie stir fry will be yum too
    10. Enjoy!
