I will show you how to make authentic Chicken Teriyaki from scratch. You may think you have to buy already made teriyaki bottle from the store. You do not need to purchase teriyaki sauce from the store! You need essential Japanese ingredients, and you can make delicious Chicken teriyaki!
I think Teriyaki became famous in the U.S. was about 30 years ago. Teriyaki is traditional food but not only chicken but also fish. This taste is an authentic Japanese taste, which is soy sauce and sugar. And it is good with mayonnaise, too. That would be another story, and I have a blog page here.
1 or 2 chicken thigh with skin
2tbs soy sauce
1tbs oil (I use vegetable)
1 cut the chicken strings at not skin side and same time make meat even thickness
2 Flip the side and poke holes by folk
3 Make a sauce in the bowl: Put sugar, miring, soy sauce, and sake in the bowl and mix them
4 Put oil in the pan and heat up (if heat is not hot enough, the chicken will stick on the pan)
5 Put skin part on the bottom, first
6 Flip and put a lid on
7 Take out the chicken from the pan and get lid of fat
8 Low to medium heat and put the chicken back in the pan and put the sauce over it
9 coat sauce on the chicken, mix chicken with the sauce well
