Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

I wanted a quick and healthy meal for dinner. I found a tasty-looking recipe on the Food Network by Ellie Krieger for teriyaki chicken thighs that looks simple and delicious. I adapted the recipe a bit by using chicken stock instead of dry sherry and added just a touch of sesame oil to the marinade for added flavor. They turned out tender and so flavorful and my entire family enjoyed them. I served this chicken with brown rice and roasted asparagus for a healthy and filling meal.

Teriyaki Chicken Thighs:


  • 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds

How to Make Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

Combine the soy sauce, sugar, chicken broth, vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a large zip lock bag. Mix until well combined. Add the trimmed chicken thighs to the marinade, seal the bag, and place in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat then coat with cooking spray. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken thighs and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle the chicken with sesame seeds and serve immediately. Enjoy.
