Teriyaki Chicken


It was back to school time for my kids yesterday. Being the first day, they were not bothered to bring their lunch boxes as they were aware it would only be a couple of hours spent there. So, I decided to prepare a delicious Teriyaki Chicken lunch for them at home instead. I used boneless and skinless chicken thigh meat for this dish. I also made some extra sauce to go with some steamed rice. They enjoyed it very much.


Teriyaki Chicken

Ingredients

6 Chicken Thighs, boneless, skinless
2 - 3 Tbsp Vegetable/Canola Oil
Toasted Sesame Seeds (Optional)

Marinate
2 tsp Ginger Juice
1 Tbsp Mirin
1 Tbsp Sake
1 1/2 Tbsp Japanese Soy Sauce

Sauce
4 Tbsp Japanese Soy Sauce
6 Tbsp Mirin
6 Tbsp Sake
2 Tbsp Sugar

Method

Trim the excess fat from the chicken and lay them flat. Make a few cuts in the thickest part of the flesh. Combine the chicken with the marinate sauce and set aside for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Remove the chicken and discard the marinate sauce. Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Place the chicken and cook until both side are lightly brown in color.

Lower the heat and pour in the sauce mixture. Bring it to a boil and reduce to low heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the chicken is well coated and the sauce is thicken. Serve immediately with some toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

  4. Hi,

  5. Made this last night. Struggled to get the juice to reduce (think it may have been my choice of Chinese Cooking Wine instead of Sake due to none in supermarket) but the meal was awesome and VERY easy to cook. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. @ABowlOfMush: They are delicious. Do try the recipe ya?

    @Amrita: I never use Worcestershire sauce for my Teriyaki sauce. Thanks for the tip.

    @LK-Healthy Delicious: Thanks dear:)

    @Anonymous: You can use normal light soy sauce and remember to taste the seasoning first. Yes, Sake is available at most wine stores.

    @Craig Killick: I'm glad you like the recipe. Do try to use Sake next time. They taste so much better.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
