Teriyaki Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
12 chicken drumsticks (I use breasts or thighs as well)

1) Combine the soy sauce, oil, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic powder in a container to marinade chicken. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

2) Drain and discard marinade. Bake chicken uncovered, at 375* for 35-45 minutes or until juices run clear.
Serve over hot rice!

I love this recipe because I cook it different ways depending on how much time I have. Sometimes I'll combine everything in the crock pot and let it cook all day. (The smells are wonderful) Or I'll combine everything in a pot and boil the chicken for about 45 min. Or reserve some of the marinade and grill the chicken outside for an awesome bar-b-que!
