Man has it been a crazy few months for us! It seems like all winter one of my boys, if not both of them were sick… Which i wasn’t really prepared for. Rohrl was the healthiest baby and never got sick. The only time he had a fever is when his first teeth came in. But it has been a completely different story with Statham. That poor kid has had everything under the sun and it just makes my heart break seeing him sick. 🙁 Once we finally had both kiddos healthy for a week we decided to test the waters and list our home for sale. Then BAM 6 days later we had an offer and 20 days after that we were moving! So needless to say, I have neglected this blog a bit. Don’t worry I’ve still been cooking, except for the week of the move, we were bad and I was lazy and we ate out every night. I’ve got lots of pictures and recipes to catch you up on!
This one is our new favorite in our house. Rohrl actually asks for it by name “Terry chicken” and he will eat it like there is no tomorrow! Statham is a big fan of it too.. Even though he more just sucks the sauce off the chicken. But hey what more can you ask from a one-year old?! Oh yeah, we also had Rohrl’s second birthday and Statham’s first birthday all within the last 60 days. To say my life has been crazy is an understatement! I’ve learned one thing now that my guys are getting older and I can bake them cakes for their birthdays… I am a much better cook than I am a baker…need more practice in that department!
But any who this Teriyaki chicken is super easy to make and really delicious! Plus there is always leftover sauce so you can put it on rice, or noodles or veggies or whatever! Recipe adapted from Budget Savvy Diva .
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 425°
Mix together cornstarch and water. Combine with all other ingredients (excluding the chicken).
Heat sauce over medium heat until it starts to simmer. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
I’ve started cutting my chicken breasts in half lengthwise and it helps it cook quicker and also cuts down on how much we eat. You can do this too, or if you prefer a thicker piece of a chicken, skip this step and add 10 minutes to bake time.
Place chicken in greased casserole dish and pour half the sauce over chicken. Make sure the entire chicken has sauce on it.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
You can pour the rest of the sauce over the cooked chicken or do what we usually do, pour it over our cooked rice and veggies. Served here with my Parmesan Zucchini
