Stir Fry Chicken Teriyaki

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Chicken Teriyaki is a lunchtime staple and a very popular dish of Japanese cuisine. This ever so popular Japanese dish is also well known in any part of the world. Teriyaki is a way of Japanese cooking. Teri refers to the lacquered sheen that teriyaki sauce develops on the surface of the chicken, while yaki means grilled or broiled.

Almost any parts of chicken can be used, but chicken teriyaki is most commonly prepared with the leg meat (thighs or drumsticks) which is filleted to ensure it cooks evenly. Traditionally, the skin is left on the chicken to keep the meat moist and it takes on a wonderful caramelized hue while getting slightly crispy as it grills.
Teriyaki sauce can be bought in a bottle at any supermarkets. The leading brand is probably Kikkoman, I think. But, if you want to make it from scratch, then the main ingredients are sake(rice wine), mirin(similar as sake but less alcoholic than sake), soya sauce, and sugar. Some recipes also add grated ginger. Teriyaki chicken is usually eaten with boiled rice. 
To make Teriyaki, the chicken can be cooked in many ways. It can be grilled or baked or you can cut the meat into pieces and stir fry. I tried making it by baking the chicken drumstick and also by stir frying. I like stir frying more then baking. I made it with store bought teriyaki sauce.    
So, here goes the recipe for Stir fry Chicken Teriyaki :::::

Ingredients :
Chicken Thigh meat : 300 gm.(debone and cut into cubes)
Teriyaki sauce : 4 tblsp.
Light Soy sauce : 3 tsp.
Ginger paste : 1 tblsp.
Garlic paste : 1 tblsp. 
Garlic : 3 cloves(grated)
Salt to taste
Sugar : 1 tsp.
Black pepper to taste
Oil : 2-3 tblsp.


Method :
  • Debone chicken thighs. As for me, I always take out the skin of chicken. Cut the meat into thin, cube like pieces for easy and thorough cooking. Marinate them with ginger and garlic paste, a pinch of salt and black pepper, soy sauce and 1 tblsp. teriyaki sauce. Keep the marinated chicken in fridge for at least 2 hours. More the merrier.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add grated garlic, stir fry for 2 minutes, then add marinated chicken pieces. Stir fry in medium low heat, at this time the chicken will loose some moisture. Cover with lid and let the meat cook. Stir in between. 
  • Turn and stir fry the meat for at least 5-7 minutes. Then add rest 3 tblsp. of the teriyaki sauce mixing with 1/2 cup of water and add to chicken. Fine tune the taste adding the seasoning, salt and black pepper as per your taste. Add the sugar,too. Then cover and let it cook further. 
  • Don't forget to stir time to time, chicken shouldn't burn. When chicken is cooked and the sauce has nicely coated the chicken, remove from heat. 
  • Serve immediately.
