Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Teriyaki (Nigella)

20 g sake
4 tbsp mirin
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp light brown sugar
2 tsp Ginger Root
1 tbsp sesame oil
750 g chicken breast (no skin or bones), cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tsp sunflower oil

Recipe Directions for Chicken Teriyaki (Nigella)

  1. Mix the sake, mirin, soy sauce, sugar, ginger and sesame oil in a dish that you can steep the chicken in: I use a 23cm/9in square ovenproof dish, but anything similar would do. Add the chicken pieces and leave for 15 minutes.

  2. Heat the groundnut oil in a large, shallow, lidded frying pan (or lidded casserole) and, using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken pieces from their dark marinating liquid to the pan. Fry until they look cooked on the outside.

  3. Pour the remaining marinating liquid over the chicken pieces in the pan and bring to a bubble, then turn down the heat to a gentle simmer, put the lid on and cook for about 5 minutes ? cut into a piece of chicken to make sure it?s cooked through.

  4. Remove the cooked chicken pieces from the pan with a slotted spoon (you could keep them warm in a bowl covered in aluminium foil) and turn the heat up under the pan to high to let the remaining liquid boil down to a thick, dark syrup.

  5. Return the chicken pieces to the pan, stir well so that they are all coated in the sticky, savoury syrup, then serve with a comforting pile of rice noodles and perhaps some steamed pak choi or greens of your choice.
