Teriyaki Chicken

This teriyaki chicken is quick and absolutely delicious. It's my new favorite recipe. It's good hot for dinner and then cold for lunch the next day. Plus, chicken thighs tend to be fairly cheap.

Teriyaki Chicken

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 chicken thighs
2 tsp sesame seeds

Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, ginger, pepper, and garlic in a large plastic bag. Add chicken thighs and toss to coat. Marinate chicken in the refrigerator for one hour, tossing chicken every 15 minutes or so.

Place chicken skin side down on a broiler pan. Broil for 6 minutes. Turn chicken over, and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Top with sesame seeds. Reduce heat to 400 degrees and move oven rack to middle shelf. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Let sit for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!
