Baked Honey Teriyaki Chicken

If you need an easy to make meal, this recipe is for you.  All you do is mixing the sauce together in a large liquid measuring cup (2 cup size) or a bowl, let it sit for a half hour and then pour it over chicken and put it in the oven.  What could be easier?  Plus it's really tasty and great served with rice ~ white or brown.







Baked Honey Teriyaki Chicken

3 chicken breasts
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small ginger root, peeled and thin sliced
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted

Combine all the ingredients in a large measuring cup or bowl and allow to sit a half hour.  In the meantime, line a baking pan with no-stick aluminum foil.  This will make clean up a breeze.  Also, lightly toast the sesame seeds while you are waiting for the sauce.  Place the chicken breasts in the pan and pour the sauce over.  Put in a pre-heated oven of 350°.  Bake for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165°.  Remove from the oven once or twice and spoon the sauce over the chicken while baking.  When done cooking, allow to sit for 5 minutes and sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds on top before serving.
