Teriyaki Chicken and Ranch Potatoes

My point and shoot camera has quit on me… I have been looking at a couple of DSLR cameras a lot lately. I think I have figured out the one I want. If anyone has any suggestions on this type of camera please share! This will be my first DSLR so I need something user friendly. I have been using my iPhone camera for a few weeks now…

This morning Trey and I went to Walmart again as if I didn’t get everything I needed last night. We bought stuff to cook for dinner. He bought steak and I bought chicken.

Teriyaki Chicken with Onions

Makes enough for 4

  • 1 bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste and Glaze
  • 12 chicken tenderloins
  • 1 sweet yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Make sure grill is hot and put chicken in. I am not certain on the cooking time I just cooked until the inside of the chicken was cooked thoroughly.
  3. After chicken is cooked place onions on grill and brown.

For other sides I cooked a can of low sodium green beans and made cheese crescent rolls (the easy way). I took a roll of reduced fat crescent roll dough and added colby jack cheese in the middle.


Now its time for the Bama game! I hope everyone's team wins or won today unless you are a Gator fan!
