1. Chicken Teriyaki

This delicious recipe is so easy to make that once you’ve mastered it, you’ll never order the takeout version again!
As far as the famous teriyaki sauce flavor that makes our mouths water, you can do some with only three simple ingredients:
  • Japanese soy sauce. I like low sodium soy sauce for the sauce. It’s important you buy a good quality Japanese soy sauce
  • Mirin or Japanese sweet rice wine
  • Sugar

To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients together and simmer it on low heat until the sauce becomes slightly sticky, just like the picture above.
