Teriyaki Chicken

1 tray (about 7 pounds or 16 pieces) of chicken thighs on the bone, skin removed
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup of red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 teaspoons minced garlic (about 9 cloves)
3 teaspoons minced ginger
3 1-gallon freezer bags, dated and labeled

Rinse and divide chicken evenly among freezer bags. Combine — stirring until sugar is dissolved — soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and oil in small bowl. Divide marinade evenly over chicken. Into each bag, measure 1 teaspoon garlic and 1 teaspoon ginger. Put bags in freezer.

To cook 1 entree: Thaw entree in refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place meat and marinade in ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of meat reads 180 degrees. Turn pieces twice during baking. The longer the cooking time, the thicker and stickier sauce will be.

12 skinless bone-in chicken thighs (about 5 pounds)

This looks good to me. I think I will brown the thighs and toss everyting into the crockpot….


2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8 thighs)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 can (14 ½ ounces) diced fire-roasted tomatoes, with juice
1/4 cup orange juice
5 teaspoons minced garlic
4 teaspoons capers, rinsed

Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet with a lid, heat the oil over high heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook until well browned, about 2 minutes per side.

Add the tomatoes, orange juice, garlic and capers. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 8 minutes.

Uncover the pan and continue cooking, turning the thighs once, until the chicken no longer is pink in the middle and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
