I always keep a bottle of teriyaki sauce in my fridge. It taste good and can be added in any dishes like fish, chicken, pork or even stir fry vegetables and mushrooms. And, this is one of it....Chicken Teriyaki.
I normally cook this in Tefal Actifry but when I'm lazy to wash the fryer, I just pan-fry in a skillet. I used to order chicken teriyaki for my boy when we were eating out in Japanese restaurant but most of the restaurant served the dry and stiff chicken, deep fried with tons of oil in it. I wonder why they want to add so much oil in the food while it can be cooked in a more healthy way? less oil at least?
Oil for cooking
1. Add seasoning to the chicken. Marinate at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Cook in Tefal Actifry:
2. Lightly grease the fryer's pan. Place the chicken (skin down) on the pan. Gently press to flatten.
3. Cook for 6 minutes. Baste the chicken with some teriyaki sauce then flip over.
4. Baste the other side of the chicken with some teriyaki sauce. Cook for another 6 minutes or until cook through.

It's been a long time I never buy Teriyaki sauce from the store. I made my own using just 4 simple ingredients. It's tastier compared to the store bought one!
Here's the recipe for 1 chicken leg.
1/2 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Japanese Soy Sauce
1/2 tbsp Mirin
1/2 tbsp Sake
|Mix all sauce ingredients and boneless chicken leg in a bowl. |
Cover and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in the fridge.
If marinate less than 2 hours, use a fork, prick the meat before add in seasoning.
