Recipe

Two very distinct versions of this recipe happen in my house depending on how much kitchen stamina I have. When there is a lot, I make up a batch of homemade teriyaki, usually throwing in a whole jalapeno for just a touch of heat in the background. When I have no willingness to cook, I use store bought teriyaki sauce. My all time favorite is by Soy Vay. Then you just layer up the chicken, teriyaki sauce, and some aluminum foil for easy clean up and pop it in the oven. This recipe also works great for chicken thighs and boneless chicken breasts, just reduce the cooking time.

One quick note about the photo. I cooked half of the chicken with the skin and half without, however I completelty forgot to photograph the skinless breast.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small sauce pan add the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, pepper, and jalapeno if you are using it. Mix the water and cornstarch together and add. Bring to a simmer and let simmer until it thickens, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Place the chicken, breast side up, in a baking dish covered with tinfoil. Pour two thirds of the teriyaki sauce over the chicken. Save the remaining sauce for drizzling over the chicken before serving.
  4. Bake the chicken for 45-60 minutes until cooked completely and juices run clear.
