I’ve struggled over the years finding just the right teriyaki chicken recipe.  It took me a long time but I eventually found the right combination of ingredients.  This recipe for  Teriyaki Glazed Chicken is easy and it is the absolute perfect flavor in my book.

GLAZED CHICKEN WITH PERFECT TERIYAKI FLAVOR

Once again, I am always wanting to make recipes that I know I can throw together pretty quickly since I am often crunched for time when I get home from work.  This is one of those recipes that actually can be made in no time at all.

I always used to think it was best to use boneless chicken breasts when making my teriyaki chicken, but using boneless chicken thighs is actually the best.   The thighs are tender and moist and actually has the right flavor for what I was looking for.

Another trick for me was to use lite soy sauce, which has about 30% less sodium.  I like to serve this with rice and toss in some vegetables.  This is by far one of my favorite ways to cook chicken!

Brine plays a big part because it is just as a fire starter for this chicken makes it tender and ready to grill. There are many recipes and versions of Honey-Teriyaki Glazed Grilled Chicken and this is just one more out of nearly thousands of similar ones.

The kids are on the summer break and I’m enjoying this time with them, so my apologies if I am not posting like before. However, I will try harder that every recipe that I post goes to become your favorite.

  • 1 Tbs. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil + 3 TBS.
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Garnish:

  • Scallion green part
  • Toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Start making simple brine first. Combine the garlic, ginger, salt, brown sugar, water, and thyme in a large storage food/freezer bag and swirl to dissolve the sugar. Add chicken and let it brine for about an hour (1 hr.) in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  3. At this point make the sweet honey teriyaki glaze: In the saucepan, over medium heat, combine teriyaki sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, and simmer until slightly reduced.
  4. Remove chicken from brine and pat dry with kitchen paper towel Add the chicken to a large bowl, drizzle with the 3 tablespoons of sesame oil and season with freshly ground black pepper. Toss to coat all the pieces and cook on a medium grill for 7-10 minutes per side until cooked through. (For bigger pieces or different parts of the chicken allow to cook up for 20 minutes until cooked through)
  5. Brush with teriyaki glaze for the last 3-4 minutes of cooking.
  6. Garnish with scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
  7. Serve with rice and or salad-I made shredded cabbage, fresh beets, and carrot salad seasoned it with a bit of oil+lemon+salt to taste.

Recipe Notes

You can use any parts of the chicken just allow it to cook more. You could make it spicy only if you add in the glaze bit of gochujang, sriracha or chili powder. This could be made in the oven/400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until done. For fantastic flavor, you could rub some bacon/pork belly fat on the griddle or grill OR if you do not eat the pork use chicken skin.
