Most Delicious Teriyaki Chicken
Teriyaki chicken is bursting with flavor and super easy. This Japanese restaurant favorite can be made in 20 minutes! Watch the video above to see how I make it.
Servings: 4 servings
Chicken Stir Fry
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs diced into 1-inch cubes
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup tamari soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/4 cup sake
- 1/4 cup mirin
- 2 tablespoons honey
- sesame seeds
- sliced green onion
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sake, mirin, and honey until everything is well combined. Set this aside.
Dice the chicken into 1-inch pieces.
Heat the oil in a large saute pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add in the chicken and let it cook for 1-2 minutes on one side, until nice and golden. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Stir fry the chicken, flip it over, and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. You don't want it cooked through at this stage, just seared on the outside.
Give the sauce a quick whisk and add it to the pan along with the minced ginger and garlic. Stir the sauce with the chicken and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
Serve on top of a fresh bed of rice and a side of steamed broccoli. Garnish with diced green onions and sesame seeds.
- Remember that if you don't have sake or mirin, you can still make this delicious recipe. Check out my teriyaki sauce post for substitutions.
