Grilled Honey-Teriyaki Chicken

With meat prices up as high as they are, I thought you and your wallet might enjoy this budget friendly meal. I found this recipe on Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen. My family loved this chicken !

The only change I would make is removing the skin from the chicken before marinating it. My husband and I both removed the skin before eating it. If you like the skin on your chicken, then you can skip that step.

This is a great recipe if you are having a casual get together and need to feed a lot of people.

Until next time,

Grilled Honey-Teriyaki Chicken

Honey-Teriyaki Chicken

Marinade

4 lbs. Chicken drumsticks or thighs

1  1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce

1 cup of brown sugar, packed

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced

1/2 cup of green onions, chopped

1 tsp. sesame oil

Glaze

1 cup of teriyaki sauce

2/3 cup of honey

1/2 cup of brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup of green onions, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced

1 tsp. of toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

1.Remove the skin from the chicken, then rinse and pat the chicken dry. Place the chicken in a gallon size ziplock bag. Mix all the marinade ingredients together. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the marinade over the chicken and close the bag. Place the chicken in the fridge for 4 hours or for best results, overnight. Once or twice during the marinading process, I flip the bag to make sure that all the chicken is covered.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place in a 9×13 pan. Discard the marinade. Cover with tin foil and bake for 20 minutes.

3. While the chicken bakes, simmer the glaze ingredients (everything except the sesame seeds) on the stove top, until reduced by 1/2 and is a thick syrupy consistency. Remove from heat.

4. After the chicken has baked for 20 minutes, brush the glaze on both sides of the chicken.  Bake uncovered for an additional 20 minutes or until the juice runs clear from the chicken.

5. After the chicken has baked for 20 minutes, remove from oven and brush one side of the chicken again with the glaze. Place the chicken glaze side down on a hot barbecue grill.  Grill the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until the chicken begins to char. Brush the glaze on the chicken and flip it over. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes and remove the chicken from the grill, place it on a serving patter and sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the grilled chicken and serve.
