How to make it

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, combine all sauce ingredients. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles.
  • Preheat oven to 425. Place chicken pieces in baking pan, lightly covered with oil spray. Put thighs skin down on baking pan. Brush top of chicken pieces with the sauce, about 1 heaping teaspoon each. Put in oven and bake until sauce begins to blacken, about 35 minutes. Turn pieces over. Pour off most grease and place in a wok to braise the lettuce. Brush skin side with sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Add 2 T. olive or peanut oil to wok with chicken drippings. Saute lettuce until soft, turning frequently.

    Tempura sauce is the dipping sauce for the fried tempura pieces. It is sweeter and less salty than regular soy and I almost always substitute it. It is bottled and can be found in the Oriental foods section of any major market as it is pretty mainstream.

    This looks very yummy. I'm not familiar with tempura sauce. I always thought tempura referred to a deep-fry. I shall scour the shelves of the market to find it though. Thanks.

    Forgot to mention it but the lettuce component here is interesting. That will not intrude on the teriyaki but will move the flavor a bit. A nice touch. Usually the Japanese would use a young and tender "Napa" cabbage for this and that might be nice also. I haven't done teriyaki in a while so it's time. Thanks for the post. RJ

    Hay Merlin: This should work very well indeed. I don't trust store bought Teiyaki sauce and glad to see you make your own. I learned a very similar recipe from a dear old Japanese lady in Hawaii, about a hundred years ago. She always dipped the chicken in the sauce for a minute or so and then let it drain before putting it in the oven, or on the grill. You got all the right stuff here and this should be a 7 or 8. Sorry but you'll have to settle for a 5. RJ
