Very good, we added minced fresh ginger and one tsp of garlic, as well as used 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 3/4 cup of soy sauce (but added an extra 1/4 cup of water) based on the reviews here to reduce the saltiness and sweetness. It was perfect. The kids liked it, as did I! A great way to make chicken other than in the oven. Thanks!
Good! I boiled everything but the drumsticks and ginger (didn't use the ginger) and then poured the sauce over the (frozen)drumsticks into my slow cooker and let them cook all day. I hac doubled the sauce but I probably didn't need to - it seemed to be plenty and then some.
This was so delicious I could slap someone. The sauce never thickened for me though, so my advice is to add cornstarch if it doesn't thicken. This made a lot of teriyaki sauce so you can probably use more drumsticks. The second time I made this I seasoned the drumsticks and baked them in the oven, then basted them with the sauce. This was even better because the skin was nice and crispy!
too much brown sugar. next time I'll sub pineapple juice for 1/2 the water. throw some garlic powder or minced garlic wit hthe ginger. used grated ginger. I used thighs and it was tasty, but a little sweet.
I found it to be too salty. I don't know if I did something wrong, since no one else had a problem. I halved the recipe because I was cooking 6 drumsticks.
I marinated the drumsticks in a regular thin teriyaki sauce before cooking. That seemed to be a good choice... They turned out nice, juicy, and flavorful on the stove top! I just hate dealing with the oil splatter that inevitably occurs when you fry anything. My only real complaint was I thought the homemade recipe for the teriyaki sauce was too sweet for our liking. Maybe I just packed my brown sugar too much before adding it?? I don't know.. but I would suggest everyone taste the sauce as you go along so you make sure it's not too sweet (or too salty)... everyone is different.
Just thought I would drop you a line to let you know this recipe is exceptionaly good. The only thing I changed in it was 1/2 cup of soy instead of 1 cup of soy. I have made teriyaki sauce for years, but never one quite so easy nor quite as tasty. Thanks for posting.
Yum! Wanted quick teriyaki chicken and didn't have the sauce. Whipped this up in no time flat - having all the ingredients on hand helped. I boiled and it thickened beautifully. I will never buy bottled again when it's this ridiculously easy to make - plus the easy ratios make it so that I can make just the amount I want. Perfect!!!
I love this recipe! My husband, who is my biggest critic when it comes to cooking loved it too. I skinned the drumsticks to help cut the fat and used low sodium soy sauce. Next time I will try chicken breast.
These were so good. Sticky flavorful sauce. I added some garlic to this recipe - will make again. Thanks!
