turnbone: I think you’re missing two key ingredients! Sake and mirin.
1/4 cup sake
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup mirin
5 – 8 tbsp brown sugar.
Reduce for 25-30 minutes.
Brown chicken breast/filet in pan, coat in sauce, turning until chicken is sufficiently coated.
The sugar and reduction is enough to make it sticky enough to coat the chicken.
You can add garlic and ginger and vinegar, but it’s not necessary in my opinion. Sometimes simpler is better! It’s a good base to experiment with. Try substituting brown sugar with honey.
As a side note, if you can’t find mirin (I live in a really small town) you can make a substitute by dissolving 5 tbsp sugar to 1/2 cup sake and bring it to a boil then remove from heat.
fib: what does “chicken seasoning” consist of?
lanadelfei: Seattle teriyaki has ruined me.
bellln14: I get everyone wanting to make sure they’re credited as original recipe maker or photographer, but that fucking guy in the corner hahahahahahahaha

Start by chopping up the chicken into small bite size pieces
Season chicken with chicken seasoning. Use a cap of seasoning to rub in the chicken and Then rub in another cap of seasoning
For the best taste leave the chicken to soak in the seasoning for several hours. If in a rush leave for 30 minutes
While you’ve left the chicken to marinate move over to the sauce.
Add to a measuring jug:
1/4 cup of Soy Sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 cloves of garlic or two tablespoons of garlic salt,1/2 tablespoon of ground ginger,2 tablespoons of either rice or cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
Now cover the pan with vegetable and heat up on a medium heat.
Now add the chicken pieces to the hot oil and cook for 5-10 mins or until chicken is brown and cooked
Now that the chicken is brown, pour the sauce into the pan and cook for 2-5 minutes until sauce starts to thicken.
Once this has thickened serve with rice and boiled or steamed broccoli and enjoy your life
Ugsley: Thanks for sharing your recipe Aaron.
I have this fantasy that people from England will have perfect English writing and be an example for the rest of the English-speaking world. The longer I live, the more I realise I’m living in a fantasy.
We have two kinds of chicken powder here. One is called chicken salt, I think people use it on their hot chips. The other is called chicken stock powder, and used to make stock for adding to soups and gravies.
Would either of them be your chicken seasoning?
Uwannafreshone: Looks bangin
doomrabbit: That’s a solid recipe. I like a quick drizzle of sesame oil once it’s done cooking. It’s a flavoring oil, so use sparingly and don’t replace the cooking oil with it, too strong of a flavor.
fumblesmcdrum: raw sauce
deadlicious_cs: Did the person in the corner eat all the chicken?? We can have the recipe only.
Design_Diva: That looks really nice, also try sprinkling some sesame seeds over the chicken at the end
