Teriyaki chicken recipe - made in a Tiger multi cooker, this teriyaki chicken is tender and packed with umami! Set it, press start and you are done! #easychickenrecipes #japanesefood #chickenstew | Tiger USA

WHAT IS TERIYAKI SAUCE?

Teriyaki sauce – テリヤキソース – is more of a glaze than a sauce really.

Soy sauce, mirin and sugar are combined and, when heated, become a wonderfully thick and delicious glaze for proteins… especially chicken.

Similar to the glossy glaze we created for this fun and easy teriyaki chicken onigiri recipe, teriyaki sauce provides a wonderful, iconic mixture of savory and sweet.

We’ve added a bit of ginger juice to the sauce for this teriyaki chicken recipe. It manages to pack heat without being overtly spicy.

And the chicken is super tender and moist due to how it’s cooked!

 

HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI CHICKEN IN A RICE COOKER

To make this delicious Japanese chicken recipe, there’s no need to fire up the burners or dig out the saute pan. We’ll be making this easy chicken teriyaki in a rice cooker today!

Since many Tiger rice cookers are capable of doing so much more than just cooking rice, we like calling them multi-cookers. And what’s so cool about this healthy chicken recipe is that we’ll be cooking our Japanese rice AND teriyaki chicken in separate compartments of the same multi-cooker. Whoa, science 😜

Simply place your rinsed rice and water in the inner pot of your rice cooker – then load up the Tacook cooking plate with all the elements for your savory, mouthwatering teriyaki chicken.

Once you press Start, your work is done, chef!

Everyone is going to want seconds. Might want to make extra!

Itadakimasu!
