Grandpa's 91st Birthday Party

This past weekend was Grandpa's 91st Birthday Party. Melba made 2 cakes, and mom made a delicious carrot cake (one of these days I will post that recipe). Some of Grandpa and Melba's friends and relatives came over and celebrated the birthday. It was good to be with family. For Sunday dinner, I made Chicken Teriyaki and stir-fry. Carolyn made "baked" potato fries. 

Chicken Teriyaki
6 small or 3 large chicken breasts, skin removed
1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce (you may need to add more)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup white or brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
2 Tablespoons onion flakes, or minced fresh onion
1/4 teaspoon pepper
*Place the chicken breasts into a gallon-size ziplock bag. In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, onion, and pepper. In a cup, whisk together the cornstarch and water. Stir this water into the small bowl. Place in the microwave for one minute. Stir and pour into the ziplock bag containing the chicken. Seal this tightly and shake up bag to disperse the teriyaki sauce evenly. Marinate this in the fridge overnight. To cook: either fry in a pan (I like to use a wok), bake in the oven, or grill on the barbecue. To bake, place the chicken in a sprayed glass pan and bake at 425 degrees F for 30 on each side. For quicker cooking, broil on each side for about 8 minutes. (For additional teriyaki sauce to top the chicken with, make the marinade once again and microwave for longer to make it thicker.)
