Teriyaki Chicken

Serves 4

Sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce is a favorite in Asian cooking. In this unique recipe, the addition of mirin, a naturally sweet rice cooking wine, adds depth to the customary sauce and combines with pineapple juice to tenderize the chicken breasts.

  • 1/2 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup mirin or sake
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves

Whisk together tamari soy sauce, pineapple juice, sugar, garlic and mirin in a wide, shallow dish. Transfer half of the marinade to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate. Add chicken to dish with remaining marinade, turn to coat all over, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight.

Preheat a grill. Grill chicken over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until a knife inserted into the thickest part reveals clear juices. Heat reserved marinade and serve on the side for dipping.
