Chicken in teriyaki sauce

Teriyaki chicken is a popular Asian dish. For this recipe, you can use ready-made savory sweet-salty teriyaki sauce from your nearest supermarket. But I suggest making it yourself, it turns out tastier. Cooking does not require much time and effort. Thanks to the marinade, teriyaki chicken in a frying pan turns out very tender, juicy and aromatic.

Chicken fillet prepared in this way has an original taste, which contains both moderate sweetness and subtle spiciness. If desired, tender dietary meat can be supplemented with carrots, bell peppers or hot chili. Dried flakes can be substituted for fresh chili peppers. Adjust the amount of spices to your taste.

Asian-style chicken goes well with boiled rice, udon noodles or funchose.
