For the teriyaki sauce:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional, for thickening)

For the chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish


  1. Prepare the Teriyaki Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Whisk together over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

  2. Thicken the Sauce (Optional): If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water to create a slurry. Gradually whisk the slurry into the saucepan with the other ingredients. Cook the sauce, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Once thickened, remove the saucepan from the heat and set the teriyaki sauce aside.

  3. Prepare the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with a bit of salt and pepper on both sides.

  4. Cook the Chicken: Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned chicken breasts to the skillet. Cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side or until the chicken is fully cooked through and nicely browned.

  5. Add the Teriyaki Sauce: Pour the prepared teriyaki sauce over the cooked chicken in the skillet. Allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes, coating the chicken well and allowing the flavors to meld.

  6. Serve: Once the chicken is coated with the teriyaki sauce, transfer the chicken to serving plates. You can drizzle any extra sauce over the chicken. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions for added flavor and presentation.

  7. Side Dish Ideas: Serve the teriyaki chicken over steamed white rice or brown rice. You can also add steamed vegetables like broccoli, carrots, or snap peas to complete the meal.
