Chicken Teriyaki

13 Apr

chicken-teriyaki-0091For quite some time I have been on the hunt for a Teriyaki sauce that is thick and sweet.  I never could get with that bottled stuff in the stores. I have finally found the perfect recipe:

  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 TBS  mirin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger (minced or grated)

1. Bring soy sauce, sugar, mirin, cornstarch, garlic and ginger to a simmer in small saucepan over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat to low and cook stirring every now and then until sauce is thick and syrupy.  (For me this was about 10 minutes even though the recipe said 5)


I served mine along with broiled chicken thighs (bone removed at home).  The boneless thighs are usually to wimpy in my local market.

    Hi! I’m so enjoying your blog. Glad I found it! I’m wondering, what is mirin? I’ve never heard of it.

    hi marycooke!
    Mirin is a japanese cooking wine… it can be found in the asian section at most stores.
