My daughter loves Asian inspired dishes and chicken teriyaki with steamed rice is one of her favorites. There are many teriyaki recipes out there but this one is really yummy and simple. Found on foodnetwork.com by Nigella Lawson.
- 2 TBS sake (Japanese Rice Wine)
- 1/4 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 TBS light brown sugar
- 2 tsp grated fresh ginger root
- Splash sesame oil
- Chicken breast
- 1 tsp peanut oil
- Sushi rice
Combine the sake, mirin, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and sesame oil in a bowl. Slice the chicken into strips and place in the sauce for 15 minutes.
Heat the peanut oil in a sauté pan and add the chicken, sauté until cooked on the outside and then add the remaining teriyaki sauce. Cook thoroughly.
Serve with cooked rice.
