4 Ingredient Sweet Teriyaki Chicken Thighs
When I came home from the hospital after having my first baby a friend from church brought me this meal. IT WAS PERFECT! My baby was colicky and I had to be super careful what I ate. This was easy on me and the babe AND it tasted soo good! I know it wasn’t just the fact that all I had eaten for days was hospital food, this was really good. My husband made sure I got the recipe and we have been making it over the past four years. :)
I still am not sure my friend has a name for this, so I just made up a name for it and will call it Sweet Teriyaki Chicken Thighs.
It is super easy too! This is a great meal for when you don’t have much time. Throw some rice in the rice cooker, broccoli in the streamer, and this in the oven. Waalaa, great meal everyone will love dinner.
All you need to do-
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Put 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 LOW sodium soy sauce, 1 cup of water, and 5-6 chicken thighs in a 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 30 mins or until chicken has an internal temp of 165. Flip chicken half way through…if you remember
After the chicken is cooked, take out of dish and pour liquids into a pot on the stove top. Mix in a thickener, either 1 tablespoon of flour mixed into 1/4 cup of cold water OR 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water. Make sure it is mixed all the way before pouring it into the pot with the teriyaki liquids. With your stove on medium stir the flour or cornstarch mixture in until the liquids thicken up. Should take only a few mins.
Put chicken over rice and pour liquid over top. Done! EAT! :)
AND EAT GOOD FOOD
