Teriyaki chicken is very popular as Japanese home cooking. The teriyaki sauce is the seasoning which is mixed soy sauce and sugar. The taste is loved by everyone from child to adult. We eat meat and fish as well as vegetables with the sauce. I like the juicy teriyaki chicken which has crispy skin side. It's easy to make at home with simple ingredients!
