Shopping List
    For the Chicken
  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken thighs (or 2 medium chicken breasts)
  • cooking oil, for frying
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • scallions and sesame seeds (optional, for topping) For the Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium tamari (Note 1)
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cold water

Instructions
  1. Step 1: In a small bowl, stir together the starch and water until a slurry is formed. Set aside.
  2. Step 2: Add all the teriyaki sauce ingredients to a small saucepan, except the starch slurry. Bring the sauce to a low simmer over medium heat. Whisk the slurry once more and pour it into the sauce, stirring as you do so. Continue stirring for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and set aside. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  3. Step 3: Cut the chicken breasts or thighs into bite-sized pieces (or leave the chicken thighs whole). Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Step 4: Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add a little cooking oil and then add the chicken in a single layer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned on all sides and is no no longer pink inside. This will take about 5 minutes for diced chicken, and 5 to 7 minutes per side for whole chicken thighs.
  5. Step 5: Once the chicken is cooked, pour the teriyaki sauce in the pan and toss to coat. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with optional scallions and/or sesame seeds.
  6. Serve: Divide onto plates and enjoy.
