Michelle's Famous Teriyaki Chicken

We love this recipe and others within MOMS do too! I made it monthly in our freezer cooking group we had last year. I also love making this for company because all the prep is done well in advance so I'm not scrambling with stuff on the stove as guests arrive.

1 large tray of chicken thighs (Or I get one pack of thighs and one of drumsticks and mix them up and freeze the other half for another recipe)
2 cups Lite Soy Sauce (or low sodium) This is critical!
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 cup lemon juice

Remove skin as best you can. Set aside.

In a saucepan, heat other ingredients, just until mixed. Pour over chicken in a dish that allow the sauce to cover the chicken. Marinate overnight if desired. This makes the best flavor. Cook at 350 for 1 1/2 hours, or until done. Serve sauce over rice.

I have also done this in the crockpot and it has turned out well. Cook on low 8-10 hours or so.

Yumm. We call it Teri-Yummy chicken in our house!
