Recently I have acquired taste for some Japanese food and have been exploring some authentic Japanese eating joints in and around London. My partner too have developed special liking for Teriyaki sauce, and he was looking around to see how it is made, so that he can try out few teriyaki dishes.
Considering the new love for “teriyaki” based food, we both (my partner and I) decided to try out it at home and it was a blessing in disguise when we bumped into “Hello Fresh”.
We were looking for try out something new on a busy week day, and Hello fresh concept appealed to us. Great concept, I say, people can subscribe to Hello Fresh meals and they are sent meal kits to make fresh meals at home, with very simple and easy to follow instructions. The meals range from Vegan to non-veg, including chicken, fish, beef, as well as gluten free too. The recipes are from various part of world too, so one can choose which cuisine appeals to ones taste buds. The difficulty level of making meals also varies from simple and quick to make meals to one which requires little expertise to challenge yourself.
The recipe I am sharing here is one which I have taken inspiration from Hello Fresh.
Chicken teriyaki is one of the easiest recipe for chicken which does not require much expertise and anyone can make it by following simple steps listed below in the recipe.
Here I am listing how to make rice too which is served with Chicken Teriyaki. Teriyaki refers to sweet savory soy sauce based sauce called teriyaki sauce. Its history is debated if its really Japanese or was it Hawaii. Teriyaki refers to a method of cooking. It is a belief that the teriyaki was originated by Japanese migrants in Hawaii, where a distinct marinade of pineapple juice and soy sauce was used.
To make Teriyaki sauce, one needs to mix garlic, honey, soy sauce and ginger together and top up with little water. In the recipe below I have shared the proportions of these ingredients to be used for making the fresh sauce, however depending on your personal taste you can tweak quantities little bit here and there.
The recipe for rice suggests using coconut powder too, but you may use coconut milk as alternative.
Below is the detailed step by step recipe of Teriyaki Chicken.
