Mealthy Tip

If you prefer a less-sweet teriyaki sauce, reduce the sugar by half.

Mirin is a condiment in Japanese cuisine. It is a type of rice wine that is similar to sake. However it has a lower alcohol content and higher sugar content.

This one is basic enough for the kids to enjoy without (too much) complaining, and interesting enough for the adults to get a break from hot dogs, sloppy joes, etc. Would love to find an easy way to get a little char on the chicken without complicating things, but I guess you can't have everything? I loved the sauce. May even make more to be able to drizzle it over the rice. Shouldn't, but might.

Okay guys.... this recipe is crazy good. My family is addicted to take-out teriyaki and this recipe will have us saving hundreds a year.... my budget will be so happy! I made the side-rice at the same time in the mealthy insert, it all finished at the same time. Even my 3 year old picky eater loved this dish, it's a real winner and so easy.

I've had so many different versions of teriyaki, I am no longer sure what it really is. In Seattle, it's grilled (burnt) chicken with a super-syrupy sugar sauce and rice, which is good, if a little junky. This feels a little more reserved and reasonable, to be honest! I particularly love what the mirin and fresh ginger do to the sauce.

This teriyaki chicken was fantastic! I served mine over brown rice with green onions and it was so delicious. Next time I may sear the chicken on all sides first just to get a little brown on them, but other than that this recipe was perfect. I will definitely make again.

I added some rice wine vinegar and honey to this delicious teriyaki chicken. I also used 2 garlic cloves instead of three because I ran out, and it still turned out great. Next time I will use three, because it lends incredible flavor. I served it over brown rice, perfection!

Made this recipe and put the chicken back in after the sauce was finished to glaze them and it was perfect!

This was my first meal using my Mealthy... It was perfect! So easy and very tasty! Much easier than marinating all day, heating up the grill on a hot Louisiana day, and waiting for a good meal... 12 minutes of perfection!

This is the fifth meal prepared in the instapot (Christmas gift). This was without a doubt the easiest and was excellent. This is one we will definitely go back to.

I really liked this recipe! I cut back on the sugar used. It still tasted great.

This was my 1st attempt with my Mealthy. I used frozen chicken breasts and they turned out a little tough. I didn’t have fresh ginger, just ground. I googled to see a conversion and it said 2 tablespoons. It gave the sauce a good kick! I did the rice in the microwave because I didn’t know if I could do the minute rice (that’s all I had😜) in the pressure cooker. I gave the recipe 4 stars due to newbie errors! Next time, I will try thawed chicken, less ginger, and real rice!

Pretty yummy and easy to make. We added confectioners sugar. 16 minutes does not seem to be enough baking time for us over here.

My kids and the neighbor’s kid who is a picky eater loved it. In fact, she had a second helping. It had a great taste and my kids and wife have already asked me when we were going to have it again.

Teriyaki chicken has been a staple since I got my cooker. I made this recipe as written, it it was much better than anything I’ve made! My family devoured it! Thank you!
