Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Bavarian beer — Choose a flavorful Bavarian beer, such as a Märzen or a Weissbier, to enhance the taste of the Teriyaki sauce.
  • Bavarian mustard — Use a medium-spicy Bavarian mustard for a balanced flavor. If you prefer a milder taste, opt for a sweet Bavarian mustard.
  • Caraway seeds — Toast the caraway seeds in a dry skillet for a few minutes before adding them to the sauce to release their aromatic oils.
  • Chicken breasts — Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness before cooking to ensure they cook evenly and remain juicy.
  • Honey — Use a local Bavarian honey for a touch of sweetness that complements the savory flavors of the dish.
