About the Recipe

Is there a more popular Japanese dish than Teriyaki Chicken? There'a a reason it's so popular - it's quick to prepare and absolutely yummy to eat! This recipe shows you how to make your own teriyaki sauce (so much tastier than what you can buy in a bottle) and produce a truly delicous Japanese chicken meal.


2 chicken breasts

1.5 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp mirin

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp Japanese cooking sake (or white wine)

2 tbsp plain flour 

1 tbsp vegetable oil 

to be served with a green salad and rice


first, to make the teriyaki sauce.  put the sugar, mirin, cooking sake and soy sauce in a bowl. mix well and then and set aside

cut the chicken breasts laterally into two thin fillets

lightly coat the chicken with the flour. this will help the meat keep some moisture while it is cooking

heat the oil in a medium frying pan.  fry the chicken fillets for 2 minutes until lightly golden, then turn and fry a further 2 minutes with a lid on the pan

next, pour the teriyaki sauce into the frying pan.  continue to cook until the sauce has reduced by about half (this should take 3 - 4 minutes.) turn the fillets every minute or so during this time

once your filltes are ready, turn out onto serving plates and spoon the teriyaki sauce over the top. enjoy with a green salad and rice
