Ty's Shoyu Chicken (Teriyaki Chicken)

  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, mixed with 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 1/2 cups soy sauce (I prefer Aloha Shoyu)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 5 pounds chicken thighs (bone-in), skin removed
  • green onions, chopped (optional)
Combine all ingredients except chicken and green onions in a large bowl or leak-proof plastic resealable bag. Add chicken to marinade. Marinate at least 4 hours; overnight is best. Place chicken in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour marinade over the chicken. Sprinkle with green onion. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The chicken can also be grilled on a barbecue and basted with the marinade. Eat with white rice and Hawaiian-style macaroni salad.
