Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Recipe
When my granddaughter, Alicia Fie, married James Reeves, our family served this flavorful chicken over rice. It requires very little last-minute fuss.

- 3/4 cup vegetable oil

- 3 tablespoons white vinegar
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
