Chicken Teriyaki


  • 1/2 kilo chicken breast, deboned
  • 2/3 cup teriyaki sauce (Kikkoman)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch (dissolved in a few tbsp. water)
  • cooking oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, (optional)
  • 1 tsp sesame seed, toasted (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, add teriyaki sauce and marinate the chicken for about for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a few tablespoon of oil in a non stick pan and fry the for about 3 minutes over medium to low heat.
  3. Flip it over and fry for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining marinade into the pan. Stir in sugar and 3/4 cup of water and let it boil. Adjust heat to low and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes to cook chicken until the sauce is reduced to half.
  5. Remove the chicken and transfer to a plate and set it aside. Simmer the remaining sauce until just enough to glaze all the chicken. Season with salt and adjust sweetness by adding teriyaki sauce if needed. Thicken sauce with cornstarch dissolved in a few tablespoon of water.

  7. Serve with rice and chopped veggies on the side. Enjoy!
