Fast Food on a Friday: Oven baked chicken teriyaki


My first piece of advice to you is this.   Make double. Seriously, seriously good.
My second piece of advice is use the right piece of meat.  This needs to be chicken thighs.  Not breasts.  Not drumsticks.   Look if you get desperate, but this recipe is really at its prime with chicken thighs.  They have the most flavour, don't go tough and hold their shape.

You're going to looooooooooove it.  I've put it on my meal plan again, already.  Early next week.  I don't think anyone in my family will complain.  In fact I know they will probably cheer.... I'm going to make extra for sushi too.


Ingredients:
500 g chicken thigh fillets, skin removed
2 tb cornflour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped
1 tsp minced ginger

Method:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c

In a saucepan mix the cornflour, sugars, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and ginger together.  Whisk together over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the sauce slightly thickens



 in a small baking tray, place your thighs and pour sauce over.

Place in oven for 25 minutes, turn the chicken pieces over and return for a further 20 minutes.
Remove, cut into slices and serve.

This sounds great! I personally, don't eat meat anymore, but this looks simple enough to whip up for hubby and kids. Thanks :)

That looks gorgeous, and more importantly like everyone in my house would eat it.

Thank you!

I'm back! I have made this sauce several times now & the whole family loves it! I use sanitarium vegie fillets and coat these with the marinade and then fry them up. I've had it with fried rice and as a sushi ingredient. Absolutely delicious!!

This looks Yummo... I'll definitely be putting it on the menu this week. Anything I could use a replacement for cider vinegar though? Christine

@Kawaii for You Perhaps a mirin and a little bit of sugar - it needs to be a mildly acidic vinegar...

Thanks for that. I've lost count of the amount of times I've bought a bottle or jar of something and only used it a few times. Christine

Love this recipe - very easy and tasty. Definitely worth making extra as it is lovely in a salad the next day.
