Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Hey my lovelies! Welcome to another entry to The Tasteful Texas! Today, we will be serving our take on Teriyaki chicken. I know there might be a few people out there who don't like Teriyaki anything, so if that's you, feel free to have a look around this blog for something you might like such as:

Orange Chicken

Okinawa Shoyu Pork


Tokyo Fried Chicken

All the links listed above will send you to one of our scrumptious Asian themed recipes. If Asian food isn't your thing, feel free to scroll through the rest of this blog for something else.

Back to our Teriyaki chicken... Teriyaki is actually a cooking technique, where food is broiled or grilled while being basted in marinade of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. For those of you wondering, mirin is a rice wine. We will not be using mirin today. So, now that I've blabbed your ears off, directed you to other blog entires, and schooled you on what Teriyaki is, are we ready to go cook? I am! I'll meet you all in the kitchen!
