  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 5 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce (and 3 extra)
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 paprika
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

How to prepare


Cut the breasts into cubes and the paprika and the onion into julienne strips. Set aside.


Brown the chicken cubes in a frying pan with 3 tablespoons of hot olive oil until they reach the midpoint of cooking.


Then we add soy sauce and the 5 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce. Stir to mix everything well.


Then we add the onion and the paprika, keep mixing and let it cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat.


Remove and serve hot accompanied by rice, vegetables or other food of your choice. The Teriyaki chicken breasts is ready.


If the amount of sauce is not enough, add the 3 extra tablespoons that we put in the ingredients.

We recommend before adding them to add a teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken it, however if you get the glazed teriyaki this step will not be necessary.

You can also sprinkle the preparation with sesame seeds.
