Orange Honey Teriyaki Chicken

Buying marked down meat is a great way to stock your freezer. Of course, I seem to end up with some cuts of meat that I don't normally use, so this package of chicken thighs needed a new recipe to spice them up!

The verdict?
My son "helped" mix and stir the marinade, so he was very excited to eat dinner when it was finally on his plate. My husband really liked it, and I will add it to my tried-and-true chicken thigh recipes!

I'm sharing this recipe at Eat at Home's Ingredient Spotlight: Soy Sauce!

‪Orange Honey Teriyaki Chicken‬
recipe adapted from The Frontier Kitchen
Serves 4

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry.
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/3 c. chicken broth
2 tbsp. sherry or miren
3-4 cloves garlic, finely grated
1 orange, zested and juiced
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. cornstarch

Whisk together all the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Add chicken thighs to bowl and toss chicken to evenly coat with marinade. (I marinated for a couple of hours)
Get your grill fired up. Remove the chicken from marinade and grill for 10-15 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through.

  1. This looks delicious. We are on a grilled chicken kick right now, so we will have to add this to our rotation.

  2. I have seen this in a fast food chain! They serve this kind of dish and I like it!

  3. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I am making this for sure. Teriyaki is one of my faves. Another chance to fire up the grill and not do burgers.
