Teriyaki chicken is bursting with flavor and super easy. This Japanese restaurant's favorite can be made in 20 minutes! Watch the video above to see how I make it.


Chicken Stir Fry

·       1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, diced into 1-inch cubes

·       1 tablespoon avocado oil

·       1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger

·       2 cloves garlic, minced

Teriyaki Sauce

·       1/4 cup tamari soy sauce, or coconut amino

·       1/4 cup sake

·       1/4 cup mirin

·       2 tablespoons honey


·       Sesame seeds

·       Sliced green onion


In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sake, mirin, and honey until everything is well combined. Set this aside.
Dice the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Then heat the oil in a large sauté pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add in the chicken and let it cook for 1-2 minutes on one side, until nice and golden, then stir fry and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. You don't want it cooked through at this stage, just seared on the outside.

Give the sauce a quick whisk add it to the pan along with the minced ginger and garlic. Stir the sauce with the chicken and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Serve on top of a fresh bed of rice and a side of steamed broccoli. Garnish with diced green onions and sesame seeds.
