Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe (Step by Step)

Teriyaki Chicken Recipe – Recently I have acquired taste for some Japanese food. I have been exploring some authentic Japanese eating joints in and around London. My partner too have developed special liking for Teriyaki sauce.

what is chicken teriyaki

Teriyaki is a cooking technique, closely linked to Japanese cuisine (Thanks to Japanese people). In this technique, food is grilled or broiled in the soy sauce.

It comes as surprise that the the teriyaki thing does not exists in Japan. Just like chilli paneer does not exists in China. Teriyaki is more like Hawaiian / American concept. Japanese workers who had migrated to Hawaii, found local ingredients and created soy sauce and created Teriyaki flavour.

Teriyaki refers to sweet savory soy sauce based sauce called teriyaki sauce.

Notes

  1. You can use air fried cashews instead of frying in oil.
  2. Many people get confused between Bok Choy and Pak Choy, they are pretty much the same.
  3. The amount of soy sauce used for Teriyaki can be increased if you feel its mild in taste.
  4. Here this recipe is of Chicken, but same can be used with Paneer or Tofu for a vegetarian version of Teriyaki.
  5. You can skip adding Coconut powder in rice if you don’t have that ready in your kitchen cupboard.
