Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Hey my sweets! Hope you are all doing well this August day wow yes we are already in August.
Things are beginning to slow down for me on my grandma end which is a blessing. I actually was able to cook something in my kitchen this week AND remember to document so I could share with you.

Thursday's Treat! Baked Teriyaki Chicken
-chicken (I used cutlets & tenders for faster cook time in the kitchen)
-Teriyaki sauce/marinade

I always do a quick wash per say of lemon juice and cold water on any type of poultry or meat I plan to cook so of course that's what I did first. Then I rinsed one last time with cold water and in a bowl I added 1/3 cup of Teriyaki sauce, 2 tbs of garlic powder and 2 tbs of sugar mixed well and added my chicken pieces. I add the sugar for a kick of sweet but if you don't want that kick you can totally just remove.

I let it sit for about 20 minutes while ran an errand and came back. Normally I just season and move on. Turn toaster oven on, set to bake @425 degrees. Place aluminum foil on bake sheet spray some Pam and place chicken pieces leaving some space between. Bake for 30 minutes, done!

I served mine with Spinach and Sweet Peppers my lil mama ate hers with Avocado and Kale. I loved the coloring the sauce gave it while it baked nice golden brown! I am taking some leftovers to work tom so I will make a wrap. However you want to serve it works well with numerous things.
Quick and easy, nice clean and always the best part healthy option.
Always stress free xo.
