  1. Made the teriyaki chicken it took me an hour in total. It was good but I had to tweak it. The brown sugar ended up making it kinda bitter with how long it cooked. Next time I’ll wait a little longer to put in the brown sugar (I did it exactly like the video). Added some onion powder (tablespoon), garlic powder (tablespoon), a tablespoon of water (to help things mix) and at least 1/3 a cup of real honey. It fixed the bitterness, unfortunately it has an aftertaste of a bitterness.

    Hope this helps anyone wanting to make this.

  2. I just made the teriyaki chicken make sure not to touch the sauce while it’s boiling or it will remain liquidy…once I left it alone for about 7 minutes it turned saucy and also I think it would come out more moist if i would have first made the sauce and then added the chicken lightly cooked…

  3. It should kind of go without saying, but you can add YOUR OWN seasonings! That’s right, boys and girls! You don’t have to follow the recipe to the exact letter. I know you’re used to having the teacher tell you every single thing you should do, but if you put on your big boy pants, put down your juice box, and think for a second or two, you would discover ALL KINDS of things you can do in the grown-up world *without being told to do it.* Oh, just think of the things you’ll discover! The places you’ll go! The garlic salt you can add to a bland meal! That’s right. Open your spice cabinet and give it a try. Don’t worry. The kitchen police won’t come after you.

  4. Simple Mac n cheese recipe:
    Go to your local grocery store and pick out the most beautiful 4 pack of mac n cheese
    Don’t bother to pay if you’re broke
    Avoid the cops,go home,and lock your door
    Now,heat up water using that cool electric kettle cause you’re too lazy to do it any other way,don’t let it heat that extra minute #rebel
    Carefully take off the seal,making sure there are no rips
    Pour in your hot water
    Add a cheese packet,without half of it going out of the cup
    Add more cheese cause cheese is bomb
    Pour onto a plate if you want
    You made mac n cheese the easier way😋
