Yet if you want to make the marinated chicken even tastier, you can do it before cooking. Marinate the chicken and leave it overnight or, if not, for a minimum of six hours.. This will not only give your chicken a savory taste but also will save your time up.
Third Step - Cooking the Chicken:
Heat the large pan on medium heat and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Ensure that the oil is hot enough, place the marinated chicken on the pan (remember that put only enough marinated chicken on the pan to cook it nice and perfectly).
Cook the chicken for five minutes and turn each side occasionally. Make sure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked to avoid eating raw chicken. Also, make sure that it will not be burnt as the chicken is in strip cuts. Afterward, pour a cup of Teriyaki sauce on top of the chicken strips, enough to cover them evenly. Repeat each step unto the remaining chickens.
Looks easy, right? Well, it will not make the dish complete with just this marinated chicken. As stated in the dish’s name, you also need to make your sauce, the Teriyaki sauce.
