Teriyaki Chicken is my recipe of the day for the Summer Games blogging week. The Olympics will be going on starting today! And I have been sharing some Japanese steakhouse recipes in honor of the host country, Japan.
Today winds down the sharing of recipes just as the Olympics start to wind up.
Let’s wish them all the luck we can in keeping everyone safe and covid free. I have my concerns about them. It would be a shame to see athletes who have worked so hard to train year after year get their hopes dashed by that nasty bug.
So while I am not sure how I feel about cramped quarters with the Delta variant raging, it is really none of my business. The nations joining the event think they have it worked out and lets hope they do.
Anyway, today I am sharing teriyaki chicken which I grilled up as drumettes. This will serve two as a main or four as an appetizer.
The marinade and sauce in this recipe will work on any type chicken. The basics are to grill chicken to 165F, then sauce and set. So use the probe thermometers (which are really quite affordable) and go by the time only as a hint of when to start checking that internal temperature.
Bigger wing pieces will take longer, and I have seen wild variance in size.
That is, if you can find them at all. There seems to be a mysterious wing shortage. I guess chickens aren’t flying as much these days. And didn’t feel they needed them. 😉
But I do and you do too!
