For all my blogger friends who are into Pinterest, if looking for a good way to schedule pins, I highly recommend Tailwind. They’re having a really good promotional deal this month if you refer your friends. That means you can set up your own tribe and essentially pay for your membership. If you’re not a person who schedules pins, then ignore! :)

Chicken Teriyaki

Looking for a good Chicken Teriyaki recipe? Look no further! Check out this recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Teriyaki is a word that my brain never wants to spell right. My brain also has a hard time spelling Marilyn. There’s something about the y and the i that throws my brain off. Brains are weird.

Now that I have spelled teriyaki correctly (thanks, spellcheck!) I can tell you more about my new favorite Chicken Teriyaki recipe. Cooper loved it. Casey didn’t complain. It didn’t really take that much time and I was able to turn leftovers into fried rice so I feel like we might have something new to add to our meal rotation.

This tastes like the kind of teriyaki chicken you’d get in a Japanese restaurant. The glaze is pretty tasty and the overnight marinade really makes the chicken flavorful. You might have some extra sauce with this recipe, but that’s great because it’s amazing on the leftovers! I’m curious how it would taste on salmon….
