Recipe: Teriyaki Chicken


What's this? A recipe on a Tuesday? Well. The good news is I'm aiming to make StudentChow my full time project now! More recipes each week, more blogs on Tumblr, and some other cool stuff coming soon (make sure you follow the blog on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter for more info). For now though, I was thinking about this one back when I was making the Steak sandwich. If Stir-Fry is a royal staple of a Student Diet, then Teriyaki has to be the best stir fry sauce. It can be made out of cheap store cupboard ingredients and goes with anything as a sweet, salty, sour (and relatively clean) choice.


  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 90 g Kale
  • 1 tbsp Mirin
  • 3 Chicken Breasts (Sliced into Strips)
  • 1 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 Spring Onions (Sliced)
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 60 g Carrot Batons (Diced)
  • 2 cup Brown Basmati Rice
  • 1 tsp Caster Sugar
  • 60 g Babycorn (Diced)
  • 1½ tbsp Soy Sauce

Step 1


Start by prepping your veg!

Prep your rice!

Step 2

Prep Your Rice!

Prep your rice the way we've covered in previous recipes. 1.5 cups to 1 cup of washed rice, high heat until the rice is boiling and then turn down to steam until all the water is gone. I added a splash of mirin, salt and sugar to make the rice sticky enough to mould.

Make the sauce!

Step 3

Make The Sauce!

Mix the Chilli Flake, Soy Sauce, Garlic Powder, Honey, Rice Wine Vinegar, Pepper, Ground Ginger and 3 tbsps of water.

Dry fry!

Step 4

Dry Fry!

Dry dry your chicken and Spring Onion. When the chicken is half cooked, add your sauce and stir fry until your sauce is sticky and caramelised.

Make the Salad!

Step 5

Make The Salad!

Mix together your diced carrot, babycorn and kale with lemon juice, sesame seeds and mirin. Season with Salt and Pepper.


Step 6


Plate up your rice, chicken and salad. Pour over a little sauce to stop everything going dry and garnish with spring onion and sesame seeds.
