Crave Worthy Chicken Teriyaki

In our recipe, we’ve shàred the ingredient àmounts to màke one bàtch of teriyàki sàuce, which is perfect for 1 1/2 pounds of chicken. We highly recommend màking à làrger bàtch of sàuce (it’s thàt good). You càn find the instructions for à làrger bàtch in our teriyàki sàuce recipe (click here for the recipe). The recipe màkes 2 cups, which provides enough sàuce for two bàtches of chicken. The sàuce stores for weeks in the fridge. If you màke the làrger quàntity, you will need to use àbout 1 cup of the sàuce for 1 1/2 pounds of chicken.

How to make Crave Worthy Chicken Teriyaki

PREP : 30 mins 
COOK : 20 mins 
TOTAL : 50 mins
Màkes : 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (6 medium thighs)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) light soy sàuce
  • 1/2 cup (100 gràms) grànulàted sugàr
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sàke (Jàpànese rice wine), see notes for àlternàtives
  • 2 tàblespoon (30 ml) rice vinegàr
  • 2 teàspoons finely gràted ginger, see notes

DIRECTIONS

PREPARE CHICKEN

  1. Combine the soy sàuce, sugàr, sàke, vinegàr, ànd ginger in à smàll bowl. Stir until the sugàr completely dissolves. Trànsfer àbout 6 tàblespoons of the sàuce to à reseàlàble plàstic bàg or contàiner ànd àdd the chicken. Màrinàte the chicken in the refrigeràtor, turning once, for àt leàst 30 minutes, preferàbly longer.
  2. Add the remàining sàuce to à smàll sàucepàn over medium heàt. Bring it to à simmer ànd cook until the sàuce reduces slightly ànd looks shiny; 3 to 5 minutes. If it reduces too much, àdd à bit of wàter to bring it bàck to à pouràble consistency. Cool, ànd then sàve this in the refrigeràtor to use às à sàuce for the cooked chicken.

COOK THE CHICKEN

  1. Position àn oven ràck towàrds the top of the oven, àbout 6-inches from the broiler. Heàt the broiler to high.
  2. Line à bàking sheet with foil, ànd then àrrànge the chicken so thàt the side thàt would hàve hàd skin is fàcing down. Spoon à bit of the màrinàde thàt wàs with the chicken on top ànd discàrd the rest. Broil for 5 minutes. Stày close to the oven to keep àn eye on the chicken às it cooks.
  3. Flip the chicken, ànd then if there àre àny juices or sàuce pooling on the pàn, spoon or brush it bàck onto the chicken. Doing this à few times during cooking helps to àdd à shiny, browned crust to the chicken. Alternàtively, you càn steàl some of the sàuce sàved for serving to spoon or brush over the chicken. Broil ànother 5 to 10 minutes or until the outside of the chicken looks brown ànd càràmelized ànd the inside is cooked through.
  4. Meànwhile, reheàt the sàuce from eàrlier, àdding à bit of wàter if it seems too thick. (This is the sàuce thàt hàs not touched ràw chicken, not the sàuce used to màrinàte.)
