You will love this easy Teriyaki Chicken recipe, I’m sure. Crispy chicken skin and tender juicy meat.

The original teriyaki recipes use mirin in making the Teriyaki sauce. It is Japanese rice wine that is widely used in Japanese cuisine. But if you do not have Mirin at home then this is your Teriyaki recipe!

I was not able to get boneless chicken thighs so I had to debone them myself. But it was not all difficult. However, if you are not up to the task, you may also use chicken breast with skin. Honestly, I prefer the thighs though as they pack more flavor than the breast part. They are also juicier so they are perfect for frying.

You can serve it with rice toppings and with some green vegetables like steamed broccoli or pak choi. But I like the freshness of the onion greens and the added crisp from it to the already crispy chicken skin is just refreshingly and satisfyingly good with every bite.
