Chicken Teriyaki Recipe

Chicken Teriyaki is one of my all-time favorite dishes and it's easy to make. It's so delicious that it always seems like I can never get enough of it. The best part about Chicken Teriyaki is that it's so versatile.
As with all my recipes, the key to a good Chicken Teriyaki is to use fresh ingredients. You can add whatever vegetables you like, or even change up the sauce to suit your taste. Chicken Teriyaki is also great dish for entertaining, because it can be made ahead of time and everyone always loves it..

  • 2 lbs Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breast cut into bite size pieces


  • 2 tbsp Acacia Honey (or your favorite honey)
  • 1 tbsp Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 cup Sake
  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Mirin
  • 2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp Garlic chopped fine

For the Chicken:

  • 2 tbsp Roasted Sesame Oil, Garlic Olive Oil or your favorite cooking oil
  • 1/4 Red Onion cut into very thin julienne
  • 1 Bell Pepper mixed colors cut into julienne
  • 1/4 lbs Snow Peas (save some for decoration and the end)
  • 3 or 4 Green Onion cut into ¼ inch slices
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch diluted in 2 tablespoons Sake (if you are not using sake do it in water)
  • 2 tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds


For the Marinade:

  • In a glass bowl, add all the ingredients and add the chicken to marinade at least for 30/45 minutes in the fridge and no more than 3 hours.  After marinading, be sure to drain as much as possible so that your chicken is not too wet.  Let it drain in a strainer or colander and be sure to capture all the marinade, you will need for the sauce.

Cooking the Chicken:

  • Quickly poached the snow peas in hot water and plunged in ice water to retain the bright green color and reserve.
  • Drain the marinade out of the chicken and reserve.
  • In a wok or a non-stick frying pan large enough to add ALL the chicken without crowding, heat the toasted sesame oil.  When the oil is hot, add the drained chicken and when it is starting to get golden brown, add the onion, the bell pepper and cook for a few minutes.  Add the marinade, the snow peas and the green onion.
  • When everything is hot adjust the consistency with the cornstarch.  Do not add all at one, add a little bit and the time and see how much you need.  Sprinkle with the sesame seed to the last minutes.  Serve with a jasmine rice.
