Chicken Teriyaki: simple and delicious!

The first meal I made in my mini kitchen (that wasn't soup from a can or cereal) was chicken teriyaki. It's so simple to make and absolutely delicious!

The below recipe serves 2.

1 large chicken breast
2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
One small onion cut into medium sized pieces
1 Yellow pepper cut into medium sized pieces
Handful of mushrooms
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper

For the sauce:
2 Tbsp sake
4 Tbsp soy sauce
4 Tbsp mirin
4 Tbsp sugar
grated ginger

Mix the sake, soy sauce, mirin, sugar and ginger in a bowl. Cut the chicken into strips or pieces and poke with a fork.
Place the chicken in the sauce and mix well so the chicken is fully covered, marinade for 15-30 minutes (or longer if you have the time although it doesn't need much more than an hour).
Once marinated, heat half the oil in a frying pan and place the chicken strips (or pieces) in the frying pan, fry until they begin to cook. Then pour the sauce into the frying pan and cook thoroughly on a medium to low heat.

In a separate frying pan (or good saucepan - which is what I used) heat the remaining oil and add the onions. Once the onions have started to brown add the yellow pepper and mushrooms, the pinch of salt and pepper and fry for 3-4 minutes (until they begin to soften).

All that's left to do now is serve and enjoy!

As stated above the recipe, follow these guidelines for 2 people, increase measurements accordingly.
You could just as easily make this with pork or turkey depending on your preference and it's so versatile it can be served with rice, noodles, vegetables (like I did) or salad. 

I really hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
