    Ingredients for Teriyaki Chicken | Your Food Fantasy
  • Clean the Bok Choy by removing the root and separating the leaves. Cut Chicken into small pieces, and saute cashews for few mins in a non stick pan. Exercise care while shallow frying cashews as you do not want to burn them but yet a nice crunchy taste, look for cashews being turned to brownish in color, keeping heat at low to medium.
    Saute Cashews for Teriyaki Chicken | Your Food Fantasy
  • To make Teriyaki sauce, in a bowl, add honey, 2 tablespoon of soy sauce, grated ginger, crushed (or grated) garlic, and 2 tablespoon of water.
  • In the same pan which you used to saute cashews (I try to avoid using unwanted new pans to avoid cleaning), add little oil and stir fry Chicken, not to over cook or keep it raw.
  • Once chicken looks close to be being cooked, add Teriyaki sauce and let it cook for 2 mins.
  • Now add Boy Choi/ Choy to the pan and gently let it cook for couple of mins to ensure Bok Choy leaves are wilted.

    Easy Homemade Chicken Teriyaki Recipe | Your Food Fantasy


  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.
