Teriyaki Chicken

Before the days of bottled teriyaki sauce, “tare” in Japanese referred to a soy sauce marinade that was sweetened and thickened by boiling down the sauce. “Yaki” refers to the cooking method. This recipe takes us back to the roots of traditional teriyaki.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 15 min




  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 chicken cutlets, about 2 pounds
  • 1 small red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 small onion, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, and ginger. Place chicken, peppers, and onions in a resealable plastic bag. Add soy sauce mixture, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and vegetables, and sauté until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let sauce reduce slightly. Remove chicken and cut into slices. Divide chicken and vegetables among 4 plates and drizzle reduced sauce over all.

    You suggest this as a Shabbat lunch recipe but it seems rather saucy…is it good at room temperature? Is it not saucy & can be warmed up? Thanks!

    • oooh Marcy good catch (where/when did I suggest that?) but yes would be good room temp.
