Teriyaki Dump Chicken

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts or 6 thighs
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine (or sherry)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoons minced ginger

Instructions

  1. For freezing: Place all ingredients into a 1-gallon freezer bag, mixing well. Lay flat in freezer.
  2. For thawing: Take the bag out of the freezer the night before, making sure the freezer bag is completely sealed. Place the bag on a shelf in the refrigerator furthest from the freezer (it works best if the bag is laying flat, although this may not be the best option with a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer).
  3. For baking: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients into a large baking dish, turning chicken to coat. Bake until chicken juices run clear (about 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the chicken pieces used).
  4. For the slow cooker: Using tongs, put chicken in the bottom of the pot. Pour remaining ingredients over the chicken. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-6 hours or until done.

Boneless and skinless chicken is preferred, but the choice is yours.
