directions

  • Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, garlic powder and black pepper in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
  • Cut the chicken into strips. Add the chicken to the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the broiler. Make sure the top oven rack is in the highest position, just under the broiling unit.
  • Place the chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet or thread the chicken strips onto skewers. Discard the marinade.
  • Broil the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until it is completely white and is just beginning to turn brown.

    I also made this for my husband and it's one of his new favorites. He liked it because it wasn't sticky like most store bought teriyaki marinades.I am not a fan of broiling either so I just dumped everything into a pan and sort of stir fried it. I'm not sure if it was because I used chicken tenderloins that had been frozen, but when my chicken was done cooking it almost had the consistency of steak. I also tried this a second time using a turkey tenderloin with similar results. Both were delish and I have served over fried rice and asian style noodles. Great recipe!!!

    I made this for my husband last night! I ALMOST passed on it cuz I don't like broiling, but I thought--I'll just pan fry it & see what happens (Zaar has given me more courage to be daring LOL). I used 2 chicken breasts, doubled the amt of soy sauce & br sugar but kept the seas amt & oil the same. I used seseme oil cuz it's great for Chinese food. I only marinated for about 45 min. Pan frying it seemed to work fine & the chicken had a great color. The only thing was the danger of the sauce evaporating--so a lid was needed at the end to maintain moisture. Also--hubby would have loved some extra sauce to spoon over so I'll try to make some extra to put on the side. thanks for sharing this!!

    Loved this recipe but I think I should borrow a friend to enjoy meals like this instead of my fussy hubby.

    I cut the chicken into cubes, and used sesame oil in place of corn oil. I skewered them after marinating and browned them in my George Foreman grill. They were done in about 6 minutes. Wonderfully quick and easy AND delicious! Made for Unrated Asian Recipe Tag Game.

I've lived in several different places (Mississippi, New York, Germany, Montana, Georgia) because my husband was a military officer, but we decided to make Alabama our home after his military career. I've worked for the US Postal Service for the past 15 years and love my job! I've been married for 27 years to my best friend and have beautiful twin daughters (pictured below). One is an art major and musician (she plays viola, guitar, piano, drums, and has the voice of an angel). The other is a French major, Starbucks barista, and ballet dancer, formerly with Ballet Magnificat and now an apprentice with the contemporary ballet company, Arova. <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/22ndbd-1.jpg"> My biggest pet peeve? People who bash the Post Office. Given the resources it has the Post Office does a remarkable job. For less than 50¢ someone will come to your house, pick up a letter and deliver it to the other side of the country in a few days time. What a bargain! The majority of postal workers I know are dedicated hard-working employees who take pride in their jobs. Just like in any company/organization you will find some slackers but the reason so much is heard about bad service or bad employees in USPS is because the Post Office is one of the only agencies that touches every American's life. Anytime you have a service problem, instead of just complaining to your friends & family, ask to speak to the postmaster/station manager. If you don't get the result you want write a letter to your congressman. All congressional inquiries are promptly addressed. The fact is that most people find it easier to complain and do nothing rather than do what needs to be done to address the issue. <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/romans.jpg"> Here are some of my absolute favorite recipes that I've found on Zaar and that my family enjoys: FAVORITE QUICK LUNCH: RECIPE#47504 FAVORITE SNACK: RECIPE#291689 FAVORITE CHICKEN SALAD: RECIPE#192150 FAVORITE SOUP: RECIPE#201592 FAVORITE "UNUSUAL" RECIPE: RECIPE#19103 FAVORITE POTATO RECIPE (tie): RECIPE#15280 AND RECIPE#44819 FAVORITE "MAKES YOUR VEGETABLES TASTE LIKE DESSERT" RECIPE: RECIPE#78204 FAVORITE SIMPLE RECIPE: RECIPE#107411 FAVORITE MIXED VEGGIE RECIPE (tie): RECIPE#183613 AND RECIPE#365501 FAVORITE MEATLOAF (tie): RECIPE#313588 AND RECIPE#329333 FAVORITE RECIPE USING BROCCOLI: RECIPE#9497 FAVORITE COPYCAT RECIPE: RECIPE#123522 FAVORITE RECIPE USING SMOKED PAPRIKA: RECIPE#205225 FAVORITE RECIPE USING FRESH BASIL: RECIPE#276657 FAVORITE PORK ROAST (tie): RECIPE#18058 AND RECIPE#116208 FAVORITE DO-AHEAD BREAKFAST: RECIPE#155945 FAVORITE BARBECUE: RECIPE#293823 FAVORITE FUDGE: RECIPE#76617 FAVORITE RECIPE USING BLUEBERRIES (tie): RECIPE#135198 AND RECIPE#307009 <B>SWAPS</B> <img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/154044/ShoeboxMysterySwap09Banner_02.JPG> Partner: S_Mama0608 <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/candyswap.jpg"> Partner: mandabears <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/CookbookAug09.jpg"> Partner: Chef nanaof6 <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/Regional.jpg"> Partner: Jamilah's Kitchen <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/honeyMar09.jpg"> Partner: ~Rita~ <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/CookbookFeb09.jpg"> Partner: QueenBee49444 <img src="http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee299/mailbelle/food/banners/HerbandSpiceSwap.jpg"> Partner: JackieOhNo!
