grilled teriyaki chicken

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup sake

1 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 Tbsp. chopped garlic

1 Tbsp. chopped ginger

crushed red pepper flakes to taste

1 1/2 lbs. FreeBird drumsticks

garnish sesame seeds

Whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, sake, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger in a shallow bowl. Add a pinch of crush red pepper flakes if desired. Place chicken in marinade and turn to coat. Cover and set aside in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Remove chicken from marinade and place onto a preheated grill. (Pour remaining marinade into a saucepan and set aside.) Grill chicken over medium heat (about 400 °F) for 4-6 minutes on each side, until cooked through.

Heat reserved marinade to simmer and cook for 2-4 minutes until slightly reduced.

Brush each with drumstick with some marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. Serves 4.
