Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Soy sauce — Use low-sodium soy sauce if you prefer a healthier option.
  • Pisco — If you can't find pisco, you can substitute it with white wine or dry sherry.
  • Lime juice — Freshly squeezed lime juice is recommended for the best flavor.
  • Honey — Adjust the amount of honey according to your desired level of sweetness.
  • Cilantro — If you're not a fan of cilantro, you can substitute it with parsley for a milder herb flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a Peruvian twist, serve the teriyaki chicken with a side of Peruvian corn and sweet potato.
  • Add a splash of pisco to the teriyaki sauce just before serving for an extra burst of flavor.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of Peruvian rocoto chili paste to the marinade.
  • Garnish with sliced red onions and a squeeze of lime juice for a refreshing touch.
  • To make it a complete meal, serve the Peruvian-style Teriyaki Chicken with a fresh avocado salad.
