Teriyaki Chicken Breasts

This is the quick and simple way to make Teriyaki chicken. It is really good and simple to make. Enjoy!

2 skinless chicken breasts

Teriyaki sauce(I used 365 Teriyaki sauce from Whole Foods market)

Lemon-Pepper Marinade Seasoning (Lawry's)-You can use another type of seasoning, I just used Adobe seasoning to season the chicken.

Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry. Place chicken in baking dish and pour 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce over chicken. Coat chicken on both sides. Sprinkle both sides heavy with Lemon-Pepper Marinade Seasoning(or anyother seasoning tha you want to use) and bake, uncovered at 325 degrees for about 1 hour until tender and slightly browned.

If you want to make your own Teriyaki Sauce from scratch here are the necessary ingredients:

Teriyaki Sauce:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup *mirin (sweet rice wine)
2 tbsp sugar

Pour all ingredients in a pan.
Stir the mixture well.
Put the pan on low heat and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool the mixture

PF Changs Lettuce Wraps

I found this recipe on and adapted it to make lettuce wraps. They are sooo good.

1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb ground chicken (or turkey)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 head of lettuce (with the leaves rinsed and dried)
Salt and pepper to taste
NOTE: You can also add a teaspoon of crushed red peppers to spice it up or cilantro to taste.

Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground chicken meat with about 1/3 of the sauce and brown like you would taco meat. (It might even be better marinade the meat for a couple of hours.) Cook until the liquid is absorbed.

Place the meat in a serving dish, the lettuce leaves on a platter and the remaining sauce in a ramekin. Take the lettuce leaf fill with meat and add a teaspoon of sauce. Roll up and enjoy!

Oven Fried Chicken Parmesan

Hello Ladies!

I guess I will start and kick things off. Recently, I made this quick and easy delicious meal for my husband Ronald. I got the recipe from my Mom, who in turn got it from the TV Food network chef Sara Moulton. This recipe is so simple and easy to make and not to mention hmmm, hmmm, good. Let me tell you, my husband was asking for seconds and thirds. So, now I frequently make this recipe for him from time to time. I just thought I would share this simple and quick meal for those of us who do not like to cook as much as I do. Enjoy ladies, and let me know how it turns out. It really tastes good with some red beans and rice, or whatever you choose. Enjoy!

1 Garlic clove
¼ pounds Butter melted
1 cup Bread Crumbs
⅓ cup finely grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoon minced parsley
1 teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2½ pounds chicken cut up into pieces (I used chicken wings or chicken drummettes)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crush the garlic clove and combine with 2/3 cup melted butter in a shallow baking dish. In another dish combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. First dip the chicken into the butter and then coat it in the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the chicken 1 layer deep in a greased large, shallow baking pan and drizzle evenly with remaining melted butter. Bake uncovered, 1 to 1 1/4 hours until fork tender and browned.
