Inspiration? A quick and cheap Japanese entree that would balance out the Miso Glazed Salmon. Complexity? Possibly one of the simplest dishes I’ve ever created. This particular recipe should be called an LJ shortcut. It features two very basic ingredients – chicken and marinade sauce 🙂
Teriyaki sauce is usually a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, sake, and honey. (Variations include adding sugar, ginger, garlic, etc).
However, I just happened to own an unused bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce, and I decided to take the lazy route with the premade sauce. Super easy recipe to make, a welcome dish that slowly cooked in the oven as I worked on the homemade dashi stock for the other dishes.
6 chicken drumsticks
Kikkoman teriyaki sauce.
1) Put drumsticks in a bowl and cover with teriyaki sauce. Cover and marinate overnight in the fridge.
2) Lay chicken on lined baking pan and bake covered at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 minutes, turning once. Make sure the meat is fully cooked before serving.
Yumm tender chicken meat! Simple is good =)
