Ingredients

For 2 people

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 100ml Soy sauce
  • 100ml Mirin
  • 40gr sugar
  • 5ml seame oil
  • 10ml sake (optional)

Chicken

  • 2 Chicken breast
  • salt
  • vegetable oil

Broccoli

  • 200gr Tenderstem broccoli
  • salt, water
  • sesame seeds

Rice

  • 200gr Japanese (short-grain) rice
  • 280ml water
  • salt

Method

  1. Mix the soy sauce, mirin, sugar, sesame oil and the sake in a small pot and bring to a simmer over low heat. Let it simmer for 20 minutes until it has a dark caramel colour and it has thickened. Preheat the oven yo 70 degrees.
  2. While it is warming up, put the rice and water with a pinch of salt into a rice cooker and cook it accordingly to the rice cooker instructions.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breast and pound it flat. Salt both sides and fry in hot vegetable oil in a pan and brown well, keep the chicken on a plate in the oven until needed.
  4. Bring a pot of water to boil, while waiting, cut the tops of the broccoli and the stems in half. Blanch the stems first because they take longer to cook. After 1 minute add the tops and blanch for another 30 seconds. Refresh in ice water and reserve until plating.
  5. Taste and season the teriyaki sauce when it has achieved a dark mahogany colour and has a thick consistency.
  6. Cut the chicken in thin strips, and plate with the Rice, broccoli, sesame and the sauce.
    I would recommend to cut the stems of broccoli in small pieces and serve the sauce on the side as some people might want less sauce than others.DSC_0255
