Notes and Tips

Marinating time: to ensure that the chicken is tender and intensely flavored, it's important to marinate it for at least 30 minutes, but if you have time, you can let it marinate for up to 2 hours.

Chicken cooking: when cooking the chicken, it's important not to press it with a spatula while it's browning, as this can cause it to fall apart and lose its shape. Instead, let it cook patiently until it is golden on both sides.

Teriyaki sauce: to make the teriyaki sauce, it's important to mix the cornstarch well with the cold water before adding it to the frying pan with the chicken. This way, you'll avoid lumps and get a smooth, thick sauce.

Rice: make sure the rice is well cooked before serving it. If you prefer drier rice, you can reduce the amount of water you add during cooking slightly.

Customization: if you want to give your dish a personal touch, you can add vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, or peppers to the pan along with the chicken.
