Chicken Teriyaki - this really is one of the easiest dishes that you can make - A teriyaki sauce traditionally is just three ingredients - equal parts sake, mirin, and soy sauce - we added a bit of garlic , ginger, sesame seeds and sugar because why not add layers of flavour if you can. Make a load of the sauce and put it the fridge you can basically have it with anything.
Slut this up to the max by dipping all your pieces of chicken is the sauce for extra coverage.
Start by peeling your ginger and garlic. Chop into very fine pieces.
Next, drizzle in 1 tablespoon of oil and drop in your finely chopped garlic and ginger. On low heat, let the garlic and ginger bloom and become fragrant.
After about 3 minutes, add in equal parts of sake, mirin, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil and let the alcohol cook off. This will take about 5 minutes on medium heat.
Once the sauce has reduced by about 1/3, mix together the corn starch and water in a small bowl.
Drizzle in your corn starch slurry and give it a mix. Your teriyaki sauce should become nice and thick.
Finally add in about 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds. Stir to combine and once the sauce is cooled store in an airtight jar. Keep in the fridge until you are ready to use!
For your chicken take your boneless skin on chicken thighs and cut off the excess skin if you needed to debone yourself.
Season chicken well and put skin down on a pan on a medium heat to render out the fat.
Keep cooking until the chicken skins have rendered out all the fat and become super crispy about 10-15 mins.
Once done flip and cook the other side for about 4/5 mins longer.
Take out the thighs you can now cook your veg in the chicken fat that has rendered out.
Now your chicken is done you can either dip the whole thighs in the sauce or drizzle it over in once it's on the plate.
Serve with rice and some sort of green.
