Teriyaki is a Japanese cooking technique where food is grilled with a glaze made from soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The term is a combination of two Japanese words. Teri means luster while yaki means grill. Teriyaki dishes became popular in the United States in the 60s when Japanese restaurants began to proliferate. The availability of bottled teriyaki sauces at the grocery store has now made it easy to make the dish at home.
This quick and simple recipe scores extra DIY points because it does not use store-bought teriyaki sauce or even mirin to make Chicken Teriyaki. This dish is great with rice, vegetable sides or mashed potatoes.
