Japanese teriyaki chicken

Hey dearies, I have recently expressed my love for Asian cuisine, I have posted recipes some recipes that I  am fond of and would love to share with you , so if that’s something you would like to see , we  have eggs ,appetizers ,salads, soups and today  we have a chicken dish recipe.   I know we have done  Japanese before but I couldn’t help myself , I love teriyaki  chicken.

Teriyaki, a japanese technique of cooking , comes from a combination of two Japanese words – “Teri” meaning lustre and “yaki” meaning grill. It is a cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine in which foods are broiled or grilled with a glaze of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar.

  • Serves 4-5
  • 500 g boneless chicken – cut into 1/2″pieces


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin or 1 tbsp red wine mixed wih 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • 1 1/2tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tbsp finely minced ginger
  • 1 spring onion finely chopped including the greens
  • 1/2  tsp oil, preferably sesame oil

How to  prepare

  • Combine all the marinade ingredients.
  • Marinate chicken in the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
  • Heat a pan on medium flame, add the marinated chicken along with the marinade.  Cook, stirring occasionally ,till chicken is done, for about 4-5 minutes.  To check if the chicken is done, break a piece of chicken with 2 forks.  If it breaks easily without any resistance, it is done.
  • Do  not overcook and make it hard, serve it hot.
