Chicken Teriyaki

Hello readers, to begin with I am really sorry for not being able to upload recipes for such a long time. Missed my kitchen a lot, obviously. While resuming my cooking adventures I decided to start with this utterly simple recipe, which is a huge hit in Chinese restaurants in Kolkata .
As it is known , Kolkata has a distinct Chinese population residing at China town, preserving their culture, their cuisine along side mixing with the flavors from the city, giving rise to a special form of oriental cuisine. Oriental food joints of Kolkata serve foods which belongs to this mixed culture mostly, though you will also find authentic chinese joints too.
So today I want to share this recipe, which is one of my favorites, because of its hot and sweet taste and yet a simple way of making it. I first came across this recipe on Tasty , and obviously modified . IMG_20160927_080748.jpg

lets get started ,

Things you will need ,

  1. Chicken – 200 gms
  2. Onions- 1 large- diced
  3. Bell papers – diced ( you may add celery, broccoli as well )
  4. Garlic – 5-6 cloves- grated
  5. Soya sauce   – 1/2 cup
  6. Honey – 1/3 rd cup
  7. Tomato ketchup – 1 Tbsp
  8. Red chilli Powder ( or flakes ) – 1 tbsp
  9. salt
  10. Pepper
  11. onion
  12. Vinegar – 2 Tbsp
  13. green chilies – 2 – chopped
  14. sesame seeds -1 tbsp

 

How I made it,

  • chicken pieces are marinated in vinegar and chopped chilies  for 15 mins
  • wok is heated , like really hot
  • add oil
  • add chicken pieces
  • add garlic
  • fry at high flame till it starts to turn brown from the edges
  • add salt ( carefully as soya sauce is very salty ) ,pepper
  • add soya sauce and honey
  • stir well , add sesame seeds , and stir for while till the chicken softens
  • take the pieces out
  • add onions and veggies
  • add salt and pepper to taste , fry for a minute or two, cover for a minute
  • add the chicken pieces back
  • add water , if you want gravy, if not then just few tsp of water will do
  • keep on flame for anothe minute and take it off

Goes really well with steamed rice, you can even serve it on skewers as starters 🙂
