Went out shopping the other day and passed by a Japanese Restaurant. It reminds me of teriyaki chicken….one of the few popular Japanese dish that I know of. My family loves teriyaki chicken. It’s quite a long time since I last made that dish. I just had to cook it. It came out so good that the pot of rice that I cooked extra for fried rice the next day was all gone! Teriyaki Chicken is simple and easy to prepare. Here’s how I did it:

Ingredients
5 pieces of chicken thigh (deboned)
1/2 C brown sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
1/2 C soya sauce
1 knob of ginger (grated)
4 pips of garlic (finely chopped)
1t sesame oil

Put everything into a big bowl and mix well. Leave to marinade at least one hour, best overnight. I was in a hurry to cook it for dinner so I only managed to let it marinade for about 2 hours. It was still very good.

Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and arrange them on a baking tray and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 25-30 minutes. Pour the left over marinade into a small pot and simmer it for a while.

When the chicken is cooked, pour the sauce from the baking into a small bowl and add 1 teaspoon of corn flour. Mix and pour into the marinade in the pot. Give it a quick boil to thicken the sauce.

While waiting for the chicken to be cooked, you can cook the rice and a plate of broccoli. They will all be cooked about the same time. You will have a wonderful hot meal of teriyaki chicken with rice and broccoli. Spoon some sauce over the teriyaki chicken. Everyone in the family will love you for that. I’m always so thrilled when everyone at home say, ‘Oh, this is so good‘. It makes me want to cook more nice food for them. That’s what motivates me to keep learning to cook better food. Of course blogging helps me to cook even more.

That looks scrumptious. I’ll bake mine next time. That’s a deboned chicken thigh? It looks huge. Our are small.

Yes, it’s deboned chicken thigh. Easier to eat. There’s one and half piece there.

That looks yummy! But I have no clue how to debone chicken thighs. Any tips? Or do you buy them already deboned?

Mary  on September 5th, 2009

Penny, Jeena and Anne, thanks very much for your comments.

Anne, the easiest is to buy deboned chicken thigh if you can get that. Sometimes I just buy ready deboned ones though it’s actually very easy to debone. I’ll show one day.
