A spicy, homemade teriyaki of soy sauce, cider vinegar, ginger and garlic enlivens your choice of chicken cuts. Doubles easily to satisfy the hoards.
Recipe from Marian Collins
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 chicken breast
1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground black pepper. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
3. Place chicken breast in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Brush chicken with the sauce. Turn pieces over, and brush again.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn breast over, and bake for another 30 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush with sauce every 10 minutes during cooking.

Amazing Stuff. Kind of backs up why they are referred to as "the wolves of the sea". Just like wolves they are intelligent enough to know that they have more to gain by working with humans rather than trying to eat us.
They're the biggest of the oceanic dolphins, and each pod is a little community.
I just learned from the article that their language is so advanced that they have regional dialects. Accents, slightly varied vocalizations based on location, just like us! Most animals just make the sound they make, but not these amazing mammals. They (and other large marine mammals) are far more intelligent than most people give them credit for.
