Easy Teriyaki Chicken
Teriyaki chicken is the most popular chicken recipe in Japanese cuisine. You can make this healthy dish using pantry ingredients and the end result is amazing chicken rice bowls with the mouthwatering teriyaki sauce that everyone loves.
We all love perfectly tender and juicy chicken meat doused in a sweet and savory teriyaki sauce. We order it at Japanese restaurants or takeout, at fast food joints in the mall, and even at American fast food chains. Even though it originated from Japan, Teriyaki Chicken has become an American staple that everyone loves!
Homemade teriyaki chicken is a super easy recipe. My recipe calls for only four (4) simple ingredients: chicken thighs, soy sauce, sugar and Japanese cooking sake. If you have an Asian store or Japanese store where you are, pick up a bottle of cooking sake (which is Japanese rice wine). If not, you can always order it online. Otherwise, just skip the sake.
Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl
Make steamed rice or brown rice, then top the chicken on top of the rice. Spoon the teriyaki sauce on top of the chicken, sprinkles some white sesame and chopped scallion and you’ll have a complete meal, or just like the pictures here. I also have an authentic chicken teriyaki recipe with skin-on chicken thighs.
How to Make Teriyaki Chicken
Marinate the chicken with the soy sauce, sugar, cooking sake. Transfer the marinated chicken and the sauce to a skillet and let cook slowly. Watch the video below on how to make this recipe.
