Japanese Chicken Teriyaki Recipe is one of the most popular Japanese dishes today. Learn from master chef and founder of the Sushi Chef Institute in Los Angeles, California Andy Matsuda how to make this wonderful dish step by step (check the video below).
The word ‘teriyaki is a combination of two Japanese words, teri, “luster”, and yaki, “to grill or broil”. The mirin in the sauce gives a good lustre to meat as it is cooked. Traditionally it was used with fish. It can also be used as a marinade for pre-cooked meat and poultry, as well as a delicious baste for items on the grill or rotisserie. Teriyaki sauce is a complement to virtually any type of meat (as long as you adjust the flavors accordingly), especially steak, chicken, fish and pork.

Step 1: Prepare The Vegetables
First we start by cutting the broccoli and the carrots. Presentation of Japanese food depends a lot on cutting techniques, so take care when you cut them. Experts like Chef Matsuda may alternate knife angles or roll the vegetable as he cuts.
Step 2: Season The Chicken
Sprinkle a little white pepper and salt on both sides of the chicken breast. Now coat the chicken with a bit of flour.
Step 3: Make The Sauce
To make the teriyaki sauce, mix 2 oz of soy sauce with 3 oz of mirin, or a ratio of 4 parts soy sauce to 6 parts mirin.
Step 4: Boil The Vegetables
Place the cut broccoli and carrots in a pot of boiling water to cook. The broccoli will cook faster than the carrots, so remove the broccoli after a few minutes and let the carrots cook a little longer.
Step 5: Make The Garlic Oil
Place a few pieces of unwrapped garlic on a skillet with a generous amount of vegetable oil on low heat so it will not burning. Stir occasionally and cook for a few minutes and then remove.
Step 7: Reduce The Sauce
Now add in the teriyaki sauce and cook to reduce the sauce until it is thick and hearty.
Step 8: Prepare To Serve
Delicately cut the chicken breast. Place the broccoli and carrots on the plate, followed by the cut chicken breast. Now douse the teriyaki sauce over the chicken. Time to eat. Enjoy
