Teriyaki Chicken

Always a big hit at our house, especially for guests. (Elizabeth - look, no dairy!)

1 c soy sauce
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1 t minced garlic
chicken pieces for 6 - 8 people (tenders would be delicious)
2 - 3 T cornstarch
1 c chicken broth

Combine first four ingredients in large pot and bring to a boil. Partially cook the chicken, turning it so all the pieces get covered with sauce. Remove chicken to a 9x13 baking dish (or smaller if you're cooking for fewer).

Stir cornstarch into chicken broth and pour into sauce. Cook until mixture is thickened slightly. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover dish with foil (or use a casserole dish with a lid) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

We serve this over rice with pineapple and broccoli.

***NOTE: This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so you may want to cut it in half if you're serving fewer than five or six. I'd try it as-is once to see of it's too much sauce for you. Enjoy!
