Teriyaki chicken thighs are a delicious and easy-to-make dish that features tender chicken thighs that have been marinated and cooked in a sweet and savory teriyaki sauce. To make teriyaki chicken thighs, you’ll need boneless, skinless chicken thighs, soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch. First, make the teriyaki sauce by combining soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch in a saucepan and cooking until thickened.
Next, marinate the chicken thighs in the teriyaki sauce for at least 30 minutes, or overnight if possible. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400°F and place the chicken thighs in a baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Serve the teriyaki chicken thighs hot with steamed rice and your favorite vegetables.
