Teriyaki is Meant for a Skillet

A few months ago I saw a photo of a chicken teriyaki bake that I thought looked quite tasty, so I wanted to try and recreate it. I tried several times, and was not pleased with the results. So, I thought I’d try out some well reviewed recipes to get a better idea of where to go. Well, I tried them, and was still underwhelmed. I realized that to get the taste that I wanted, I was going to have to do each item individually in a skillet.

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

After having made teriyaki no less than a bizillion times for my casserole attempts, I had the sauce down pat. Through so many attempts, I developed a recipe for a lightly sweetened teriyaki sauce with a delicious flavor. The key: sesame oil. Seriously. Whenever I made that addition, I knew I was on the right path. It adds just a little bit of spice with a nice flavor.

In my Honey Garlic Pork with Fried Rice recipe, I learned the benefits of frying in butter. Doing so is tricky, as it can burn easily – but when done right, the flavor is unmatched. Let’s be real … butter makes everything taste better. If you’re opposed to butter, you can use vegetable oil and increase the frying temp to medium-high.

Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables

This Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables recipe is pretty straight forward, but here are a few tips to help ensure success:

  • I firmly believe that the brand of soy sauce makes a big difference in this particular recipe. I prefer Kikkoman regular soy sauce. This is not a sponsored post … just a little public service announcement.
  • As mentioned above, when frying in butter keep the temperature level medium and watch the skillet closely. If you let the heat get too high, you’ll burn the butter.
  • The reason for transferring the broccoli to an ice bath is to stop the cooking process so the broccoli doesn’t get too soft, but keep it a nice, bright green. If you’re going to include broccoli, don’t skip that step.
