Spicy Chicken Teriyaki

A spicy take on the famous chicken teriyaki. A quick meal for a busy day.


Chicken Breast/Thigh250g
Light Soy Sauce3 tbsp
Sesame oil0.5 tsp
Black Pepper1 tsp


Light Soy Sauce3 tbsp
Dark Soy Sauce1 tbsp
Sake/Chinese Rice Wine2 tbsp
Mirin/White wine2 tbsp
Sugar1 tbsp
Gochujang (otherwise use chilli flakes, bit boring)1tsp
Honey2 tbsp
  1. Cut the chicken into whatever shape you want. You can do cubes or strips.
  2. Marinate the chicken with light soy sauce and sesame oil, and black pepper.
  3. In a bowl, add the soy sauce, mirin, sake, honey, sugar, gochujang and mix.
  4. In a preheated griddle or a fry pan, add a little oil and add the chicken.
  5. Once the chicken is mostly cooked, add the veg of your choosing (broccoli/peppers/carrots) and fry for a minute.
  6. Add sauce to the chicken and mix instantly. The honeys and sugar will start caramelising and you want to cook the chicken.
  7. Turn off the heat once the sauce thickens and add sesame seeds. Serve with rice.

I know that seems like a lot of steps and a lot of ingredients, but feel free to make substitutions and customise this dish! It only takes about 15 mins to make.
