Teriyaki Glazed Chicken Leg Quarters

Teriyaki Glazed Chicken Leg Quarters

I wanted to make some teriyaki chicken thighs for dinner but my local grocery was completely out so I grabbed these leg quarters. I decided to season them simply then pan-sear them before baking them in the oven. I slathered some teriyaki sauce over them a few minutes before they were finished baking. They turned out excellent! My kids gobbled up the drumsticks and my husband and I each got a thigh. The meat was tender and juicy. Since I didn’t marinate the meat I served some extra sauce on the side so we could pour some over the cooked chicken if we wanted. This chicken paired nicely with the Chow Mein.

Place into the HOT pan and cook, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip the chicken over and place it into the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, slather both sides of the chicken with teriyaki sauce then place back into the oven for 5 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for 5 minutes prior to cutting. Serve with extra teriyaki on the side if desired.

  1. Hi Pam!
    Boy, they look yummy. I noticed you used Trader Joe’s brand of Teriyaki. Is that a soy based product? I didn’t notice it in Trader Joe’s.

    Thanks for sharing, Pam…

  2. You get bonus points just for using hindquarter instead of leg quarter. Especially the phrase “grabbed these hindquarters”, it sounds like you goosed the chicken 🙂

    Great sounding recipe as well, the two stage cooking works for me.

  3. Did you use olive oil or canola oil . The canola makes more sense with the higher temp. These look and sound delicious and I’m just getting ready to make.
