Chicken Teriyaki

I recently made the best chicken teriyaki, it was both yummy and easy to make. Enjoy!



  • 1 tbsp chopped ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp thick sweet soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp garlic chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tsp cornstarch, and 2 tbsp water, mixed thouroughly
  • 3 chicken thighs
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sauté the onion, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan on medium heat until the onion is translucent and the garlic begins to brown.
  3.  To the same pot, add the sweet soy sauce, regular soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic chili sauce, apple cider vinegar and Chinese cooking wine. Continue to cook on medium heat until the sauce begins to boil, add the cornstarch mixture. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low.
  4. In a separate glass dish season the chicken on both sides with garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper.
  5. Using a cooking brush, brush the top of the chicken with the teriyaki mixture, and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. After ten minutes, add more mixture to the chicken and flip over. Cook for an additional 25 minutes.
  7. After 25 minutes, remove from the oven, and using a large spoon, collect all the juice from the chicken and add it to a small saucepan and cook over medium heat. Return the chicken to the oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Serve the chicken with rice, and add the sauce if needed.
