Baked Teriyaki Chicken


This recipe is yummillious!!!!! After reading the reviews, I wanted to give it a shot by using this home-made teriyaki sauce, eventhough I have a bottle of teriyaki sauce(from the store) sitting in my refrigerator.... It is indeed delicious. It said it is healthier to remove the chicken skins but I preferred to have, more crispy.. hehe. Here, I used the bone-in thighs but you can use any part of the chicken meat to make this recipe. I also whipped up Summer Noodle Salad as a side dish to go with this main course. Next time, I will double the sauce. A few reviews said its fabulous on salmon. So gonna try that next time... This home-made teriyaki sauce is a keeper!!! 

Baked Teriyaki Chicken (Allrecipes)
Servings: 6 (For 2, see the quantity in bold)

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon cornstarch (1 tsp)
1 tablespoon cold water (1 tsp)
1/2 cup white sugar (2 tbsp + 2 tsp)
1/2 cup soy sauce (2 tbsp + 2 tsp)
1/4 cup cider vinegar (1 tbsp + 1 tsp)
1 clove garlic, minced (1/3 tsp)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (1/8 tsp)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (1/8 tsp)
12 skinless chicken thighs (4) 

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.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place chicken pieces in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Brush chicken with the sauce. Turn pieces over, and brush again.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn pieces over, and bake for another 30 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush with sauce every 10 minutes during cooking. 



Notes:
  • The recipe did not mention this.. Use a heavy duty foil on the baking dish otherwise you ended up with sticky black mess.
  • Cover with foil for the first 30 minutes, remove foil, pour remainder of sauce over and bake another 20-30 minutes to keep the meat tender.

I'm going to try the sauce. I've been looking for just the right one and while some are good, better than bottled from the store, I thought they were missing something.

You guys get much snow? We had a few inches but it's already melting this morning.

Hi Lynn, happened to search for gula melaka agar agar recipe & came across this wonderful blog of yours. Besides happy to know that you are a Singaporean (Me too! Haha!Sitting here in Singapore) but also love your recipes! Thanks for sharing. =D

I am a novice in baking and cooking so I need your advice. When you mentioned brush with sauce every 10 mins, do u mean we set the time to 10 mins for brushing and continue this step until the required time of 30 mins?

I love your blog and I'm sure to be a regular visitor. =) Take care!

Hi Melody, Thanks for visiting. :)

Yea, after you covered with foil for the first 30 minutes, you could set the time to 10 minutes for brushing until the required time of 30 minutes or until the chicken pieces are cooked.

Let me know how it turned out when you make them. :))
