Teriyaki Chicken Legs

This is a fantastic recipe! The chicken legs are bursting with teriyaki flavor. I marinate the chicken legs no less than 12 hours which makes a huge difference. By marinating them for at least 12 hours the marinade has a chance to get deep into the meat. Fantastic!

  • 2 lbs chicken legs
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup soy sauce (I use reduced salt)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Heat butter, soy sauce, sugar, water mustard and garlic powder  in the microwave or stove top until the butter and sugar melt. Allow to cool
  2. Place chicken legs in zip bag
  3. Pour  marinade over legs and marinate at least 12 hours, turning as often as possible.
  4. Drain off all the marinate
  5. Bake in a heavy foil lined baking pan at 375F for 1 hour or until down, turning occasionally.
