Teriyaki Chicken Thighs 鶏の照り焼き


Meat and jam go very well! We had a huge bottle of marmalade at home and we didn’t really know how to use it. We don’t eat bread or baked products much, so we hardly ever use jam or marmalade. One day I came up with a brilliant idea of using it for cooking meat! You can make beautiful teriyaki sauce without any hassles. It’s so refreshing and handy!

➡  Ingredients (for four people)

  • One chicken thigh (about 250 grams)
  • 4 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sake
  • 3 tablespoons of marmalade
  • Some wakegi green onions

➡ Recipe

  1. Get rid of the fatty bits from the chicken. Open up the thick parts of the chicken with a knife to get even thickness in the meat.
  2. Heat up the frying pan to a medium heat and fry the chicken with the skin on the bottom.
  3. Turn it over when it’s golden brown. Get rid of the excess chicken oil with paper towels.
  4. Mix soy sauce, sake and marmalade and put it in the frying pan. Caramelise the chicken with the sauce.
  5. Cut the chicken up and transfer it to a plate.
    Sprinkle wakegi green onions on top and enjoy!

💡 Tips

  1. You can use apple jam instead of marmalade.
  2. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste! You can even make it a little bit spicy.
  3. You don’t always have to use wakegi green onions.

➡  材料 (約4人分)

  • 鶏もも肉:一枚(250gくらい)
  • 醤油:大さじ4
  • 酒:大さじ2
  • マーマレード:大さじ3
  • わけぎ:適量

➡ 作り方

  1. 鶏肉は余分な脂肪を取り除き、厚い部分を包丁でそいで開き、厚みをそろえる。
  2. フライパンを中火で熱し、鶏肉を皮のほうを下にして入れて焼く。
  3. 綺麗なきつね色の焦げ目が付いたらひっくり返す。鶏肉から出た脂はペーパータオルで拭き取る。
  4. 醤油・酒・マーマレードを合わせたものをフライパンに入れ、鶏肉にからめつける。

    Thank you so much for these recipes! Looking for japanese recipes in english can be a bit daunting….. I actually found your site while googling potato starch….. Which i had accidentally purchased at the local market, thinking it was cornstarch!

    I also have a large jar of orange marmalade in my kitchen, purchased at an english international store, although we are finding many opportunities to use it, since the wonderful bakeries in japan have delicious baked goods!!!
