8 medium Chicken thighs or drumsticks

1/2 cup Chicken broth
3 tblspoons Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne
2 cloves Garlic; chopped
1 teaspoon Ginger; chopped
1 tablespoon Butter

Original recipe makes 4



Place the chicken pieces in a prepared roasting pan. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, white wine, chicken broth, sugar, cayenne, garlic or ginger. Pour this mixture over the chicken pieces. Cover with aluminum foil and marinate in the refrigerator for an hour.

*You can use hot sauce instead of cayenne

Dot the chicken pieces with butter and bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes.

Remove sauce & broil or grill the chicken pieces (if desired). Do this quickly as the cooked chicken will dry out if it is overcooked.

Thicken the sauce in pan with cornstarch or flour and use for basting while broiling or grilling.

Glad I didn't pour the "teriyaki" sauce all over everything before I tasted it. My husband ate it simply because he was starving. I took two bites and made something else for myself. Don't bother.

I made it with boneless chicken thighs. Everyone in family loved this dish.

It was tasty. I should have added just a little more cayenne, but it was a nice blend of flavor.
