Teriyaki Chicken

Christopher: ‘In Japan you’ll more likely find this done with fish and without egg noodles. But we are not in Japan, so here is my incredibly western Japanese style teriyaki chicken.

This one is perfect for a quick meal after work, once the chickens marinated the actual cooking takes a maximum of twenty minutes. Very simple, very quick and very tasty.’

This chicken dish takes: 20 mins max (marinate for half hour)
