Romper Room

Who remembers Romper Room? I do. So does the Ranting Wife. A funny thing, we both remember that it was a television show that was recorded locally. I remember it in Denver and she remembers it in Cleveland. Obviously one of us (i.e. her) had to be wrong. Right?

We were both right. Romper Room is one of the few television shows that was franchised. Each local station could use the Romper Room name, logo and scripts but were produced locally. While common for some shows for international distribution (there is a Sesame Street produced in multiple countries), there was very few where this happened all within the United States.

The flavor in this dish is nothing but original.


I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.


Making the sauce.



Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Prep Time: 30 M | Cook Time: 1 H | Servings: 6 servings


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
12 skinless chicken thighs


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.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Place chicken pieces in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Brush chicken with the sauce. Turn pieces over, and brush again.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn pieces over, and bake for another 30 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush with sauce every 10 minutes during cooking.
