How to Make Chicken Teriyaki
In this recipe tutorial, you’ll learn how to make teriyaki sauce from scratch by using 3 ingredients. Learn the techniques on how to make the chicken super crispy, just like the best Japanese restaurants.
There are a ton of chicken teriyaki recipes around, but what I am going to share with you is probably the easiest and the BEST homemade chicken teriyaki that tastes like it’s straight from the best Japanese restaurants. Plus, it takes only four main ingredients to make the dish and 20 minutes from prep to dinner table.
I have personally tasted many amazing chicken teriyaki here and in Japan; the best ones always have crackly and crispy skin. They are sliced and then drizzled with the teriyaki sauce. You should grill your chicken if possible, but for homemade chicken teriyaki, you should pan-fry the chicken until the chicken is crispy on both sides, until golden brown.
Teriyaki sauce calls for soy sauce, mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) and sugar. To make the sauce, you mix the sauces together and simmer it until the sauce becomes slightly sticky.

Chicken Teriyaki Recipe
Serves: 2-3 | Prep Time: 10 Minute | Cook Time: 10 Minutes
1 lb chicken thighs, deboned, skin-on
White sesame seeds, for garnishing
Lightly season both sides of the chicken thighs with a little salt. Combine all the ingredients of the Teriyaki Sauce in a sauce pan. On medium heat, reduce it to a thicker consistency about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, heat up a non-stick skillet on high heat. Pan-fry the chicken thighs (skin-side down first) until both sides are nicely browned and cooked through. The skin should be pan-fried to a crackly crispy texture. Turn off the heat, transfer the chicken out. Let cool. Slice the chicken thighs into pieces and drizzle the teriyaki sauce over the chicken and garnish with some sesame seeds. Serve immediately with steamed rice.
You may use boneless and skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs but the best is skin-on, boneless chicken thighs. Click to learn how to debone chicken thighs (picture guide and video).
