My recipe is simple. I have been doing this for so long, and so often, I don’t really measure the quantity anymore. I sort of just eyeball everything.  Do adjust according to your own taste.

Teriyaki Chicken


1 Chicken Thigh

A pinch of salt

Crack of pepper

1 clove garlic

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp minced onion


1 Tbsp soya sauce

3 Tbsp mirin

1 Tbsp sugar


  1. Place all the ingredients except the chicken in a pot. You can use up to 3 portions of the sauce, it is up to you.
  2. When the sauce comes to a boil and have thickened slightly, add the chicken.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, remove.
  4. Set the chicken aside to rest, while you boil off the sauce to thicken it again.
  5. Slice chicken and drizzle sauce over.
  6. Nice with sushi rice, in rolled sushi, in any Japanese noodle or with a Japanese style salad.
