Difficulty: Very Easy 

Time: 20 min

Number of servings: 2 servings


300g (10.6oz.) chicken breast 

1 tbsp. Sake 

salt & pepper 

Teriyaki Sauce 

* 2 tbsp. Sake 

* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake) 

* 2 tbsp. soy sauce

* 1 tbsp. Sugar 

1 tbsp. Katakuriko (potato starch) or corn starch or flour is ok 

1 tbsp. sesame oil or cooking oil


1. Cut the chicken breast against the grain into bite-sized pieces. See the direction of the grain lines, then cut across them. (Tip #1) 

2. Season with Sake, salt and pepper. Coat with Katakuriko to seal the juice. (Tip #2) 

3. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan. Place the chicken, cover and cook on medium low for 3 minutes. Flip them over then cover again and cook for 3 minutes. 

4. Add the Teriyaki sauce and simmer on low until the sauce thickens. You want to be careful not to burn them at the end 😉 

You can add some veggies if you like.
