Roast Chicken for Christmas

Roast Chicken for Christmas

You can easily make these in a frying pan. My family loves this standard teriyaki-flavored roasted chicken.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken thigh with bone (large)
Salt and pepper
to taste
about 2 heads
1 (Recipe ID: 1883121)
3 cm
Water or sake
3 scant tablespoons
☆Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
2 teaspoons ~ 1 tablespoon
Black pepper
to taste
Cherry tomatoes
as needed


1. Prepare the chicken. Cut along the bone to break and remove the joints.
2. Cut the potato in half and then slice into 1-1.5 cm half moon shaped pieces. Break the broccoli into small tufts. Cut the carrot into star-shaped pieces.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan and pan-fry the chicken on medium heat with the skin side down. Also add the potatoes and sprinkle with salt. Pan-fry on medium-low heat for about 7-8 minutes.
4. Flip over the chicken and add the water and broccoli. Cover with a lid and steam on medium-low heat for about 6-7 minutes. Remove the vegetables and arrange them on a plate.
5. Add the ☆ ingredients to the same frying pan as the chicken to form a glaze. Flip the chicken over and cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes to allow the flavor to seep in.
6. Optionally season with black pepper. It also tastes great if you add a little bit of honey. (In that case, reduce the amount of sugar.)
7. Serve on a plate and decorate with vegetables. You can also arrange each chicken on a separate plate.
8. Note: Instead of carrots, cherry tomatoes are also fine. You can also microwave the potatoes and broccoli first, and then just brown them in the frying pan last.
9. If you want to bake these in the oven, bake for 20-30 minutes at 200°C. Midway through, divide the sauce into two batches and pour over the chicken. Don't let the sauce burn.
10. If using smaller chicken, 3 tablespoons of the flavoring ingredients is too much, so use a smaller amount. If you're not a fan of sweet flavors, you don't need to add the sugar.
11. I recommend these vegetables - Recipe ID: 2428450.
