GRILLED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS OR THIGHS TERIYAKI-STYLE
4 to 6 dinner servings
In a deep large bowl, combine all the Teriyaki Marinade ingredients, blending well. Add chicken pieces, coating each with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours to blend the flavors, turning chicken pieces frequently.
Arrange chicken pieces, bone-side down, on a barbecue grill rack, about 10 inches above medium coals (ash gray and glowing) or gas grill set at low to medium temperature. Grill chicken, turning (over) each piece and basting frequently with the marinade until chicken is fork tender and done, 25 to 35 minutes total grilling time. Be careful not to burn chicken.
To serve, arrange chicken pieces on a serving platter or individual plates and garnish as desired.
May also bake chicken. Prepare chicken pieces as previously directed for grilling. Arrange chicken pieces in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and bake in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken pieces are fork tender. Garnish as previously directed.
Note: May also use chicken breasts or breast pieces, if desired, in place of chicken drumsticks or thighs.
