Teriyaki Chicken Legs

Hmmm…yummy teriyaki chicken legs for dinner. I served this dish just with warm white rice, simple and delicious. First, I seasoned the chicken legs with salt pepper and fried with oil for 10 minutes both side. Combine the sauce; teriyaki sauce, sweet soy sauce and minced garlic. If you like a little bit spicy, just add cayenne powder into the sauce mixture. Place the chicken legs into greased baking dish, and brush with the half of the sauce, bake, flip and brush again. Total just 15 minutes to bake it. Enjoy it 🙂
