 Ingredients List

  • From The Food Addicts
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoons ginger root, sliced
  • ¼ cup mirin
  • 1 ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 pounds chicken drumsticks (about 12)
  • Teriyaki Sauce (see above)
  • Sesame Seeds for garnish


1. In a saucepan, combine garlic, ginger, mirin, soy sauce, brown sugar, and orange slices.
2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes on low heat.
3. In a bowl, mix the water and cornstarch. Add mixture to saucepan and bring back to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes over low heat until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and let cool. Use immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container.

1. Marinade the chicken in the teriyaki sauce in a large plastic bag or dish for 4-24 hours, making sure each drumstick is evenly coated.
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking dish with tinfoil. Place the drumsticks on the baking dish in one even layer and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until sauce is set and the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
3. Garnish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and serve with your favorite rice and stir-fried veggies (broccoli, snow peas, bell pepper, etc).
