Honey Chicken teriyaki

Honey Chicken teriyaki

I made "chicken teriyaki" by creating the caramelization with honey. Add lettuce and rice...and you have a one-plate lunch.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken thigh meat
2 (500g)
Salt and pepper
a pinch of each
Vegetable oil
as needed
●Sake
2 tablespoons
●Mirin
1 tablespoon
●Honey
1 1/2 tablespoons
● Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
sides (lettuce, rice, cherry tomatoes, etc)
add as much as you like

Steps

1. Season both sides of the chicken thigh meat with salt and pepper.
2. Mix the ● ingredients.
3. Add 1 to 2, and set it aside for a while.
4. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, and cook the drained chicken from step 3 for 2minutes over medium heat.
5. Turn the chicken over. It's done if the skin is nicely browned.
6. Add the leftover marinade in the bowl from step 3 to the pan, and simmer to reduce for about 5 minutes.
7. Turn the chicken over again, and cook the skin side for about 2 minutes until golden brown.
8. Take the chicken out of the pan, cut into large bite sized pieces and plate. Add rice, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, etc. and you have a one-plate lunch.

Story Behind this Recipe

I ended up with this recipe after much thought on how to create a beautiful "teri" or caramelized shine.
