Chicken teriyaki with parmesan parsley potatoes

Chicken teriyaki, parmesan parsley potatoes, and salad

I refuse to own one of those blogs where you have to search and search for the recipe amidst lines about the weather and my grandmother and the pants I’m wearing and what my cat crocheted. I promise to give you recipes and cost of recipes. Straight up.

Parmesan Parsley Potatoes:

  1. For a family of three, we sliced four small red potatoes on a mandolin at about 1/8” then coated the slices with about 2 T of vegetable oil.
  2. Next, toss with sea salt flakes and pepper pepper powder.
  3. Throw on a sheet pan and toss into a preheated oven at 420 degrees.
  4. Cook for 40 minutes.
  5. Make chicken (recipe below) and cook chicken for 25 minutes.
  6. When chicken is finished, remove chicken from oven and let sit.
  7. Kick the oven heat up to broil.
  8. Sprinkle the potato slices with a handful of parmesan cheese. Broil until toasty. 

Trenton’s Teriyaki Chicken


  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 1 c water
  • 3 T packed brown sugar
  • 1 T honey 
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 1/4 c cold water

The How To:

  1. Mix the water, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, ginger,  and garlic powder over medium heat. Heat until heated. Duh. 
  2. Mix the cornstarch and 1/4 c cold water until dissolved.
  3. Add to the sauce pan and heat until saucy.
  4. Chill.
  5. When cool to the touch, marinate your chicken thighs in the saucy stuff for about 5 hours. 
  6. Remove from refrigerator about an hour prior to eating so chicken can come to room temperature. 
  7. Place on a baking sheet.
  8. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees.
  9. Cook for 35 minutes or until chicken looks like it wants to be eaten. 
  10. Remove and let sit while you finish the potatoes.

So, what’s it cost?

  • 1/3 bag of red potatoes: $.66
  • 6 chicken thighs out of a 10lb pack of chicken: $.96
  • 1 carrot (of a 12 carrot-bag): $.08
  • 1/6 cucumber: $.08
  • 1/10 of large goat cheese log: $.60
  • 2 beets: $1.25
  • 1/4 c lettuce: $.10

Total: $3.73, or $1.24/person. Oh. And Trenton found a cool heart-shaped potato. Yes, that’s his happy face.
