Chicken Teriyaki

Chicken teriyaki is probably every children’s favorite Japanese food. I know I love this so much when I was young, and every single time my family went to a Japanese restaurant, I didn’t even look at the menu and said I want a chicken teriyaki meal.

Now that I’m a full-fledged adult, I eat out less and prefer cooking at home. And with this recipe, I can cook chicken teriyaki for myself and my family. These homemade chicken teriyakis are good, just as good as the ones in any good Japanese restaurant. I swear!

Ingredients for chicken teriyaki: skin on boneless chicken thigh, soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sugar.

Ingredients for chicken teriyaki

Homemade teriyaki sauce

There is no need to buy special-purpose teriyaki sauce, especially if you have the following ingredients stocked in your pantry: soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sugar.

When it comes to sake, it is always better if you can find some decent Japanese drinking sake. Cooking-grade sake is okay too, though I prefer using drinking-grade sake. 🙂

For this chicken teriyaki dish, we will need these for the teriyaki sauce:

  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoon sake
  • 4 tablespoon mirin
  • 2 tablespoon sugar

For the chicken teriyaki itself, you will need:

  • 4 chicken thighs, boneless with skin intact
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3 tablespoon oil

Cooking chicken teriyaki

1. Brown chicken

Pat dry chicken thigh, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Sear chicken thighs until browned on both sides. About 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside.

2. Teriyaki sauce

Wipe clean the frying pan (or use a clean one), add all teriyaki sauce ingredients into the pan and bring to a boil. Cook until sauce is thicker.

3. Coat chicken with teriyaki sauce

Once the sauce is thick, return all chicken thighs into the pan. Cook until the sauce turns into a glaze that coats the chicken.

4. Rest and serve

Turn the heat off. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces. Serve with steamed white rice.

15 Minutes Mushroom Teriyaki Recipe

I feel sluggish in summer and I tend to cook really simple dishes, like this 15 minutes mushroom teriyaki, so I can be in and out from the kitchen as fast as possible. Although we are making a teriyaki dish, there is no need to buy a bottle of teriyaki sauce. As long as you have soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar, you can make your own teriyaki sauce at home.

15 Minutes Mushroom Teriyaki

You can use any mushroom

I use super common white button mushroom to make this mushroom teriyaki dish since this is the most widely available mushroom. Of course you can use other varieties of mushroom too, such as king oyster, fresh shiitake, and fresh portobello. When you use king oyster or fresh portobello mushrooms, this can easily be made into a main dish.

Playing around with the garnishes

I always stock fresh scallions in my refrigerator, so chopping some up to garnish this easy mushroom teriyaki dish is a no brainer. Another possible garnish is to use lemon zest, and even squeeze some of the fresh lemon juice to the finished dish to make an instant teriyaki ponzu mushroom dish!
