Easy Chicken Teriyaki

I’m not sure if all Teriyaki recipes are this easy, or if I was just lucky to have found this one! I like quick an easy recipes, I’m always busy, yet I try to cook at home as much as possible. I read that people who prepare the majority of their own meals, live an average of 10 years longer, and I like these odds. But to be able to keep doing that, I do need recipes that save time, and here is a great example of speedy dinners without sacrificing taste!

What you’ll need;

  • 1 – 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast
  • 8 tbsp soy sauce
  • 8 tbsp Mirin
  • 4 tbsp Sake (I used white cooking wine instead)
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 4 tsp brown sugar

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl. Place chicken in a dish, Cover with the liquid, then marinade for 2 or more hours.

Add oil to a skillet, then pan fry the chicken on one side for 6 minutes over medium heat. Turn over an pan fry for an additional 2 minutes. Add the marinade and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes. Serve with broccoli, white rice or sticky rice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
