Teriyaki chicken is a Japanese dish made with chicken that has been marinated and then grilled, broiled or sautéed in a sweet and savory sauce. The word “teriyaki” comes from the Japanese word “teri” meaning shine or glaze, and “yaki” meaning grill or broil.

The marinade for teriyaki chicken typically consists of soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, and ginger. Garlic, green onions, and sesame oil are also common additions. The chicken is marinated in this mixture for several hours, allowing the flavors to penetrate the meat.

After marinating, the chicken is cooked in a hot pan, on a grill, or in the oven until it is cooked through and has a crispy exterior. The remaining marinade is often reduced and used as a sauce to pour over the chicken before serving.

Teriyaki chicken is often served with steamed rice and vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and snow peas. It can also be served as part of a stir-fry or in a sandwich. It is a popular dish around the world and can be found in Japanese restaurants, as well as in many other types of restaurants and home kitchens.
