Chicken Breast Teriyaki With Sesame Seeds

Chicken Breast Teriyaki With Sesame Seeds

Enjoy light tasting chicken breast meat with a rich sweet-savory sauce. The sesame seeds are so aromatic.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken breast
1 tablespoon
2~3 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
1~2 tablespoons
Toasted sesame seeds (white and black)
1 tablespoon each
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons


1. Slice the chicken diagonally into bite-sized pieces. Put the chicken and sake in a plastic bag, and massage the chicken well. If you have time, leave it to marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature.
2. Coat the chicken from Step 1 with katakuriko. If the sake has been absorbed by the chicken, just add the katakuriko to the bag to coat the chicken.
3. Heat up the vegetable oil in a frying pan and brown the chicken.
4. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
5. When the chicken is browned on one side, turn it over.
6. Once the chicken is about 80% cooked, add the soy sauce and honey.
7. Turn the chicken over again. Coat well with the sauce, to finish.
