You can use the the whole chicken thigh as-is, or cut into pieces. Poke several holes on both sides with a knife or fork, to make it easier for the flavors to penetrate.
Combine the ＊ ingredients, and marinate the chicken for at least an hour. Turn the chicken several times to make sure the flavors penetrate evenly. It will be even tastier if it's marinated overnight.
Preheat the oven to 430°F/220°C. Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with kitchen parchment paper with the skin side up. Bake for 22 minutes.
Baste the chicken with the leftover marinade several times.
If using a microwave: Put the thicken in a heatproof dish with the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes on each side. It's even better if you simmer the sauce for a while in a frying pan to reduce it and pour it over the chicken.

Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to eat teriyaki chicken that was richly flavored with the teriyaki sauce.
If you pan fry the chicken, it's important keep checking it to see that it doesn't get burned. If you are baking it in an oven, baste the chicken with the sauce several times to make it nice and shiny.
