My daughter loves Asian inspired dishes and chicken teriyaki with steamed rice is one of her favorites. There are many teriyaki recipes out there but this one is really yummy and simple. Found on foodnetwork.com by Nigella Lawson.
2 TBS sake (Japanese Rice Wine) – I did not have this and omitted it and it still taste great.
1/4 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 TBS light brown sugar
2 tsp grated fresh gingerroot – I didn't have this either and put 1/4 tsp ground ginger instead.
Splash sesame oil
1 tsp peanut oil
Combine the sake, mirin, soysauce, brown sugar, ginger and sesame oil in a bowl. Slice the chicken into strips and place in the sauce for 15 minutes.
Heat the peanut oil in a sauté pan and add the chicken, sauté until cooked on the outside and then add the remaining teriyaki sauce. Cook thoroughly.
Serve with cooked rice.
