Teriyaki chicken is bursting with flavour and super easy to make. Teriyaki dates back to ancient Japan. The word teriyaki is a combination of two Japanese terms: teri, which means luster or shine, and yaki, meaning grilled. This homemade teriyaki sauce is so easy to make and much tastier than store bought. Ready in 30 minutes, it's perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Step-by-step instructions

First Things First

Our vegetables and fruit come as fresh as can be, so please give them a quick wash before you get started.

As well as your basic cooking tools, you will need...

Frying Pan

Step 1

1 Cook Rice

In a medium pot, bring 1 1?2 cups water to the boil. Stir in the jasmine rice, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes until all of the water is absorbed. Keep the pot covered and let the rice absorb the water off the heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Tip! When swapping the chef selected protein; adjust the cooking times and method to ensure your protein is properly cooked and therefore safe to eat.

Step 2

2 Prepare Ingredients

Cut broccoli into small florets. Trim the snow peas, removing the tough string along the edge. Peel the carrot and cut into half moons. Slice the spring onions, keeping the white and green separate. Boil a pot of water for step 4.

Tip! Peeling the carrot is optional.

Step 3

3 Make Teriyaki Sauce

In a pot, mix together the soy/sake/mirin with brown sugar and 1/4 cups of water. Place the pot over a medium high heat and simmer for 4 minutes, letting the sauce reduce. Combine the cornflour with a little water and stir to form a thin paste. Add cornflour mix to the sauce stir for a minute until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 4

4 Cook Veg

Add broccoli and carrots to a pot of boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft. In the last minute of cooking add the snow peas to the pot. When cooked, drain the veg and keep warm.

Tip! You can microwave the veg if you prefer.

Step 5

5 Cook Chicken

Pat dry chicken thighs. To a frying pan over a medium high heat add a drizzle of oil. When hot add chicken thighs and cook for 4-5 minutes. Turn chicken thighs over and add teriyaki sauce to the pan with white part of the spring onions. Baste cooked side of chicken with some of the sauce. Cook chicken for a further 4-5 minute, or until cooked through

Tip! Don't let the sauce burn, turn the heat down if necessary.

Step 6

6 You Plate It!

Divide the rice and veg between serving plates. Slice the chicken and divide between plates. Top with any remaining teriyaki sauce in the pan. Scatter with sesame seeds and the green part of the spring onion. Enjoy.
