Eating Out Knock Off-Chinese Food (Teriyaki Chicken)

Hey everyone. Since we are working at slashing our expenses I am having fun in the kitchen. Also, I share on this short video about why I took down previous video.




Recipe
2 pounds of boneless chicken
1/2 c Soy Sauce Low Sodium
1/2 brown sugar
2 TBL of minced garlic

Marinate chicken for 2 hours or more.
Bake at 350 for 30  minutes

Complete meal with rice, sauted peppers and onion . Super Delish!!!!

  1. It's nice to hear your sweet voice again. :) I wondered about your budget video. I went back to comment last night and found that it had been taken down. Like you, we are working on being wiser with our money. We did have a point of struggle. Thankfully we are past that point but as you said aren't rolling in the dough. Both Chuck and I are going to hit the 47 mark next year and that has woken us a little bit as we'd like to be in a better financial position. We're still young, but we are thinking about how fast those retirement years are coming. I'm loving your thoughts and series on being prudent.

    I love teriyaki chicken. I have a favorite restaurant where that is the only thing I order. I'll give this recipe a try soon.

  3. I’m sorry Chrissy. It was me that suggested the side gig. Working for the on demand food delivery apps have been a blessing because you literally start and stop working whenever you want to. As long as you complete the delivery if you’re on one. And since hurricane Harvey, there has been seemingly ten times more homeless people around than before. Lakewood made the news for shutting people out, but by far they weren’t the only ones. My old apartment complex had waist deep water on all first floor units and with a megachurch called Sagemont church right around the corner, I really pulled strings with them VERY nicely to house some of my former neighbors. I was nice but firm, and they were pretty downright mean. I did have some Mormon missionaries come to me to find out where I’m living now and I said I no longer live in the same place, but to please go back to my old complex and help those people. It has been two months and some houses still have debris on the roadside. Our local Christian radio station is teaming up with an orphan organization to replace their annual “giving tree” with raising money for 50 foster families who are at high risk for being disrupted due to the hurricane damage making their homes not up to state standards. The churches should at least step up to help these people. Sorry again if I offended you.

  4. Oh Chrissy, I am sorry you were hurt. I though you were brave to put all that out there. People get really touchy about tithing. But I know I have been blessed by tithing. Let's just keep helping each other and we will all get through what we need to get through. Hugs

  5. We love eating chicken that way! I agree, it's so good. Because I struggle with eating food at restaurants, because of allergies, it's by far the best choice to make it myself with gluten-free soy sauce. Often at the restaurants, they use the wheat-filled version. The nice thing is that I can get a gallon of the GF kind at Cash and Carry for under $10, much lower than the specialty kind from a health food store!

  6. You are such an inspiration! I agree with you that when we are middle class/low income family, we will struggle! I feel that this is the time to be as wise as we can! ... Joining you in this journey Chrissy :) and I just love seeing your lovely face on a video. I think we should all do that. I speak faster than I type ... :D

  7. Chrissy, So nice to see another video! I make a Chinese chicken dish very similar to what you do. I do marinate it in low sodium soy sauce, chopped fresh ginger, and chopped fresh garlic. Sometimes I will do this with chicken wingettes if they are on sale for a good price. Yum!

  10. I loved your video and that you were just being real and honest about your life and sharing what works in your kitchen too! It is always good to try to be as frugal as we can, and it always does seem to be a struggle especially when you still have children at home. May the Lord continue to bless your heart for HIM!
