  • 2 pounds boneless chicken thigh with skin or chicken breast -about 4-5 pieces
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoon mirin
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil - for frying
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds - for garnishing
  • 1 stalk green onions - sliced thinly for garnishing


  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Mirin
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup water


  • Combine chicken, salt, sugar, and mirin in a bowl and mix well. Cover and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • While waiting, prepare the teriyaki sauce by combining all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Let it cook until reduced by half and slightly thicker. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken with the skin side first for 3-5 minutes or until golden and crispy. Then turn and do the same on the other side.
  • Transfer chicken to a chopping board and cut into bite-size. Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top and some green onions.
