Teriyaki, a traditional Japanese dish, has a sweet and slightly salty flavor that kids love. The chicken has a beautiful sheen and the combination of soy, mirin, sesame and ginger forms the flavor foundation. Serve this recipe with rice and enjoy with the family.
1 bunch scallions, green part
only, cut into 3-inch (8-centimeter) sections
Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan
over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes per side,
until cooked through, being conscious not to move the chicken too much,
allowing it to brown and develop great flavor.
While the chicken is cooking, in a
small bowl, combine the sake, water, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, ginger, sesame
oil and garlic.
Remove the chicken from the pan.
Add the sauce to the pan, turn down the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes.
Return the chicken to the pan with the scallions and simmer, turning the
chicken once to coat in the sauce, for an additional 5 minutes.
*If you cannot find mirin,
substitute rice vinegar and increase the brown sugar to 3 tablespoons.
