chicken boiled in teriyaki sauce

Freezer Teriyaki Chicken

Last week, I published my recipe for Teriyaki sauce.  This week, I want to share some of the ways I use that recipe to make Teriyaki Chicken.   It’s not uncommon for me to put all of the teriyaki sauce ingredients into a zip top bag before adding chicken.  I put this bag into the freezer so that I have ready made teriyaki marinated chicken which can be cooked in a variety of different ways. One of the easiest ways to prepare this chicken is on the stove top. Put the chicken along with the marinade into a large diameter pan […]

Thickened teriyaki sauce on meat and rice

Teriyaki Sauce

I love teriyaki.  In fact, it’s one of my favorite ways to season chicken and burgers, but I don’t like to buy teriyaki sauce.  It can be expensive, and there is no reason to spend money to buy the pre-made sauce.  Teriyaki  is one of the easiest sauces to make because it is made from ingredients that most people already have on hand.   The sauce can be used as a marinade or thickened to be brushed on like a barbecue sauce.  Sometimes, I have been known to do both. Pouring this sauce over chicken pieces before freezing provides you with […]

Mongo Guisado

No series of bean recipes would be complete without an Asian style bean dish. This one has its roots in the food culture of the Philippines.  I had never done anything with mung beans besides sprout them until a few months ago when I decided to cook some with onions and garlic and bacon.  The taste of cooked mung beans reminded me of black eyed peas.  I still had some dried mung beans in the pantry, so I began to look for a recipe that was more authentic. I asked co-workers and they mentioned several sweet recipes, but only two […]

Cabbage stir fried with onions and garlic

Stir Fried Cabbage

Since Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, my local grocer has had some excellent prices on cabbage.   Since I always try to shop sales, I picked up a couple of extra heads.  Cabbages tend to store for a much longer time than heads of lettuce.  Historically, they were stored for long periods hung upside down by their roots in an outside building or mulched in the gardens for families to enjoy well into the winter.  Unfortunately, the cabbage you buy at your local grocer has been far too abused to last that long, but they will last for […]

Sake It To Me Garlic Shrimp

This recipe began on a family vacation when my family wandered into a Hot N Juicy Crawfish Restaurant.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with this franchise, they serve crab or seafood boils which allow you to select from a variety of  different seafood as well as flavors such as Garlic Butter, Cajun Style, and Lemon Pepper.   In addition to selecting the flavor, or flavors, the intensity of the spice is available from mild to extra spicy. In the tradition of a low country boil, the entire thing is served up on paper topped tables and you eat […]
