Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chicken breasts — To ensure juicy and tender chicken, marinate it for at least 30 minutes. Avoid overcooking to prevent dryness.
  • Mirin — Look for a high-quality mirin to enhance the flavor of the teriyaki sauce.
  • Sesame oil — Use toasted sesame oil for a rich and nutty flavor.
  • Rice vinegar — Opt for unseasoned rice vinegar to avoid overpowering the other flavors.
  • Cornstarch — Mix the cornstarch with water to create a slurry before adding it to the boiling marinade for a smooth and thick sauce.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a twist, try using different proteins like salmon or tofu instead of chicken.
  • Add a touch of heat by incorporating a small amount of chili flakes or Sriracha to the marinade.
  • Experiment with garnishes like microgreens or edible flowers to enhance the visual appeal.
  • Serve Teriyaki Nouvelle with a side of steamed vegetables or a fresh salad to complete the meal.
  • If grilling is not an option, you can also cook the chicken in a skillet or bake it in the oven.

Serving advice

Serve Teriyaki Nouvelle on a bed of fluffy jasmine rice or alongside a medley of sautéed vegetables. Drizzle extra teriyaki sauce over the dish for added flavor.

Presentation advice

Create an elegant presentation by arranging the sliced chicken in a fan shape on the plate. Drizzle the teriyaki sauce in an artistic pattern and sprinkle sesame seeds and fresh cilantro over the top for a pop of color.
