Another one of my family’s favorite dishes is Chicken Teriyaki.
Ingredients for Brine:
4-6 skin-on filleted (boneless) chicken thighs
Ingredients for Teriyaki Sauce:
1) Combine the water, soy sauce, brown sugar and mirin in large ziploc bag and add the chicken thighs. Press out as much air as you can and seal the bag. Let this sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
2) To make the teriyaki sauce, just add the honey, soy sauce, mirin and sake to a small sauce pan and boil over medium heat until the sauce is glossy . It should take on a caramelized taste but be careful not to burn it.
3) When you’re ready to grill the chicken, turn the broiler on and move the oven rack up to the upper position. Put a wire rack on a baking sheet and put the chicken thighs skin side down onto the rack.
4) Grill until brown then flip so the skin side faces up. Baste the skin side with teriyaki sauce and continue to broil until the skin is golden brown with just a few charred spots. Give the chicken one final baste with the teriyaki sauce and serve chopped up on a bowl of steaming hot rice with some extra sauce.
5) Happy eating! 🙂
