Cooking Instructions For Authentic Japanese Chicken Teriyaki Recipe
This is The Bald Chef’s recipe Authentic Japanese Chicken Teriyaki Recipe. The 1st step is to take a bowl to prepare your marinade in. Place in the bowl the Japanese Soy sauce, Japanese Sake Wine, and Mirin in proportion to the ingredients list. Thoroughly mix the teriyaki sauce. Lay your chicken thighs in a baking pan and pour half of the marinade onto the chicken thighs. While the marinade is working on the chicken, flip the chicken over so that all parts of the chicken are thoroughly covered with the marinade. Take the 2nd half of the marinade and place it into a small pan on medium-low heat, and reduce by half. If you decide to use a charcoal barbecue grill, prepare the charcoal and place the chicken onto the hot grill. Close the lid to the barbecue cook, turn the chicken over, and liberally paint on the teriyaki glaze, flip the chicken and do the same on the other side. Replace the lid and continue cooking until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Place the chicken onto a cutting board, and cut the chicken into thin strips. These authentic Japanese teriyaki strips should be served on white Rice.
