This Teriyaki chicken is a perfect plan B recipe. The easy teriyaki sauce cooks up in minutes and the chicken is simple too! Just a couple of steps to prep the chicken and then pop it into the oven and let it bake until it's tender and juicy then slather on the sweet sticky savory sauce!
Add all of the sauce ingredients (except cornstarch and water) to a small sauce pan over medium high heat. Add cornstarch and water to a small bowl and mix until the clumps are gone. Once the sauce mixture starts to boil add the cornstarch mixture. Cook until the sauce has thickened stirring often.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Season the chicken legs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add the chicken to a bowl with the oil. Coat with oil.
Bake each sides for 20-25 (basting every 10 minutes) or until cooked through. Serve with broccoli and rice.
Alternatively, If you want, you can add the sauce to a cast iron skillet or any large pan you have, over medium heat until the sauce comes to a boil then simmer.
