RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

TERIYAKI (Japanese Barbequed Chicken), Japanese

This recipe is delicious! I was bad and left the chicken marinating in the fridge overnight, but it didn't seem to matter. The taste of this teriyaki is much smoother and rich than bottled sauces. I used Grandma's Pure Molasses, and fresh garlic. Skipped the red coloring...beautiful color without!

Ingredients
  • 1 chicken (fryer)
  • 1 ½ cups soy sauce
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 clove garlic, mashed
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1tsp. red coloring (optional)
Preparation Instructions

Clean and singe chicken. Salt and leave for 1 hour. Halve or quarter chicken

Mix soy sauce, sugar, molasses and garlic in flat pan and soak chicken for 2 to 3 hours, no longer, or the soy sauce will drain the meat juice out of the chicken. If chicken is cut as for American frying, soak only 1 to 2 hours.

Broil or bake. If baked, cover baking pan and bake it at 350°. Baste chicken every 10 to 15 minutes until done. This gives the beautiful glaze. Cool and cut into small pieces. Serves 6 to 8

Variation: Other meats prepared with the same sauce -- lean beef, pork, rabbit pigeon, fish or shrimps.
