Teriyaki Chicken

My first attempt at Baked Teriyaki Chicken using Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade/Sauce. This was so yummy. Chicken flesh was really fragrant & tender. Hubby couldnt get enough of it & complained that 1 was not enough!

Just to fulfil my hubby's craving & appetite, I baked them again. This time, 2 chicken legs for him! I baked at 160 degrees & the skin chars a bit. So should stick to 140 degrees.

Recipe for Teriyaki Chicken using Kikkoman Merinade/Sauce

1) Marinade 2 chicken legs with Kikoman Teriyaki marinade overnight. Be generous with the marinade (maybe about 5 tbsp).

2) Preheat the oven to 140 degrees/low heat. Place chicken on baking tray with skin side down.

3) Bake for 15-20 mins. Brush some remaining marinade before turning chicken to the other side.

4) Repeat the brushing of marinade after 5 mins.

5) Continue baking until chicken is cooked. Use skewer to prick the flesh & check.

This time tried to make my own Teriyaki Sauce. And instead of baking, use stir fry instead.
Hubby still love it. Seems like he couldn't get enough of Teriyaki Chicken :P

2 chicken thighs with skin (boneless)
3 tbsp mirin
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tsp sugar
1 tbsp oil

1) Remove excess fats from the chicken thigh. Marinade chicken thighs with mirin, soy sauce & sugar for at least 30 mins. I left them overnight as the burgers are for breakfast :)
2) Remove chicken thighs from marinade. Leave the marinade aside. Add 3 tbps of water to the remaining marinade.
3) Heat oil in pan & place thigh with skin side down. Turn over when browned.
4) When chicken is cooked, pour the marinade sauce (from (2)) into the pan over the chicken & cook till sauce thickens.
5) Teriyaki Chicken Thighs ready to be served in whatever manner (burger, Bento, Western style, etc).
