Teriyaki Chicken

I have been making this chicken dish for years. It is so easy and frugal. You can use just about any cut of chicken. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts recently but that is the more expensive cut.

I have made this many times with leg quarters or just drumsticks. When my husband was in college we ate this a lot with leg quarters. Whatever you choose, it is really good. This is also very good grilled.

When I find chicken on sale I buy a lot and then freeze it in this marinade. I mix the marinade up in Ziploc bags, add the chicken, and freeze. Thaw in marinade and cook.

  4. Amy, thanks for stopping by. I am not gluten free so I know my recipes probably don’t work well for you. But thanks for stopping by and looking around.

    Thanks so much for linking to this for the “Frugal Food Series: Chicken”.

    I just love chicken “dump” recipes where you can freeze the raw chicken in a marinade, then thaw/marinate later for an almost instant meal. It’s doubly great in grilling season.

  6. Ooh, yum. I think I’ll try this and then grill the chicken! Thank you for sharing!
