Teriyaki Chicken 照燒雞腿
Teriyaki Chicken is a popular Japanese dish for it sweet and savoury flavour. It’s a most quick home cooked dish that can be done in a short time and especially kids will really enjoy it. The chicken meat (usually thigh) is tender and pairs well with the teriyaki sauce that made up of 3 ingredients, soy sauce, mirin (sweet rice wine) and sake (cooking wine) all combined together. Anyway, you can also adjust the flavour the way you want. You can start to pan fry the boneless chicken without adding any oil for a few minutes till browned and almost cooked through. Pour in the teriyaki sauce and cook till it almost dries up, forming a thick and shiny glaze sticking to the chicken. Best to serve with green salads or white rice. You may also boil extra teriyaki sauce in a small pot, so that you can drizzle more sauce over the chicken if serve on rice.
