  • Stove


  • 3 lbs of Chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetabe oil
  • 1/4 cup of Teriyaki sauce (add more as needed for flavor)
  • 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch or flour
  • 2 teaspoons of water (optional for thickening purposes)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onion stem
  • 1 teaspoon of Sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar


  • First, I always think it's good practice to wash and clean your chicken thighs because you will want to remove the skin.
  • Once you've finished properly cleaning the chicken, you cut the chicken into chunks.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, in a large pan over medium heat. Once your oil is warm enough you will begin to place your chunks of chicken thighs  into the oil.
  • As you're waiting for your oil to warm up, you can began to chop up your 1/2 cup of green onion stem.
  • Next we're going to sauté our chicken, so that it becomes light brown and crispy, while still preserving its texture, moisture, and flavor. As the chicken is sautéing,  I began to add the  1/2 cup of chopped green onion stem. 

Teriyaki Sauce

  • Add 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce (add more as needed for flavor), 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, or white vinegar, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil , and 3 tablespoons of brown sugar.  
  • Then, add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch or flour,  mixed with 2 teaspoons  water for thickening.
  • Once you've  poured in your teriyaki sauce, allow your chicken to simmer on low heat for about 10-15  minutes.
  • *If you notice your sauce is too thick, you can add a little water.*
