How to Make Teriyaki Chicken
We absolutely love this recipe — the chicken is almost addictive. The recipe is simple, quick, and provides lots of opportunities for making it in advance. Read on for our tips for making the sauce, the best cut of chicken to use, and our favorite way to cook it.

The sauce takes 10 minutes to make and can be made days, if not weeks, in advance. Here’s what goes into it:


  1. Low sodium soy sauce adds color, lots of flavor, and seasoning to the sauce. It’s salty and strong by itself, but when you mix it with the other ingredients, it tastes incredible.
  2. Sugar balances the saltiness and umami of the soy sauce.
  3. Sake is my favorite ingredient in the sauce. It’s Japanese rice wine and adds a lovely balance to the sauce. You can also use mirin, which is similar in flavor, but sweeter than sake. If you cannot find sake or mirin, dry vermouth or dry sherry will do the trick, and as a last resort, you can leave it out altogether, but keep in mind that this will change the taste of the sauce dramatically.
  4. Rice vinegar is another favorite ingredient for me. I love how it balances the sugar and soy in the sauce and takes the dish to a whole new level.
  5. Ginger isn’t typically used in Japanese teriyaki, but we love the extra flavor it adds. We use a Microplane rasp grater to finely grate the ginger so that it “melts” into the sauce.
