Baked Chicken Teriyaki

Posted by: ari | well seasoned

Baked chicken teriyaki has a deep umami flavor that builds as it cooks. A thinly sliced onion on the bottom of the pan adds sweetness and prevents the teriyaki sauce from burning. Brush chicken every 5 minutes with teriyaki to concentrate flavor and keep the chicken thighs juicy! Serve with scallions and sesame.

Ingredients

  • 2 - 2 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs fat trimmed
  • ½ cup rice flour

  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce recipe below for homemade
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

  • Place chicken thighs on top of onion, then drizzle with 2 Tbsp olive oil. Cook chicken for 25-30 minutes, brushing the chicken thighs with teriyaki sauce every 5 minutes. Chicken is fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 F.

Notes

  • Nutrition facts do not include rice or broccoli.
  • This homemade teriyaki sauce recipe makes all the difference in the world with this dish! Only 3 ingredients: sake, soy sauce, and mirin!
  • Yes, you can use bone-in, skin on chicken thighs, but the cook time will increase by about 10 minutes. Also, because the chicken is near pan-seared first, the skin on top is less likely to be crispy. We love boneless thighs here!
  • Can I use chicken breasts instead? We prefer thighs, as they're juicier and are less likely to dry out, but yes. The method is exactly the same; the cook time may vary (chicken breasts tend to be thicker than chicken thighs). Chicken is safe to eat when the internal temperature is 165 F.
