I don't often shop at Whole Foods. It's not conveniently located and kind of pricy.
I grace their isles every once in a while. When I do, I often buying trail mix from the bulk bin.
I always buy unexpected items from the grocery store, but at Whole Foods I almost inevitably end up with trail mix.
I think I'm drawn to the trail mix because I can fool myself into thinking it's healthy, even though I purchase the kind with chocolate.
I have wanted to make teriyaki chicken for a while. Last week I found a healthier recipe for teriyaki chicken on allrecipes and gave it a try.
The ingredients are 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 1 tablespoon cold water, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup cider vinegar, 1 minced garlic clove, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 12 skinless chicken thighs.
I added the cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground black pepper into a saucepan. I stirred and simmered the sauce until it thickened.
I poured it over the chicken thighs. I stored the chicken in the sauce overnight in the refrigerator.
I placed the chicken in a baking dish. I baked the chicken thighs at 400 degrees.
I baked the chicken for 40minutes. I flipped it after twenty minutes.
The sauce was fabulous. It was sweet, salty, and savory.
