Orange Infused Teriyaki Chicken

The last time I made Chicken Teriyaki was three years ago.   Back then I made it with mushrooms and may be it wasn’t as authentic as it should be but it was delicious.  In that recipe I did not use sake or mirin, nor did I use it in this recipe as well, because to tell you the truth, I didn’t want to spend money on drinks that will wait in the cupboard for maybe another three years until I cook this dish again. The last time I used sherry but as I did not have any of that as well, after google searching “What does sake taste like”, I decided to use the only wine I had and sweetened it with orange and petimezi (grape molasses) to balance the taste.

I love petimezi but I only used a small amount because  it is very sweet and I did not want to add too many calories.  If you don’t have petimezi, you can use any other molasses you like or use honey, brown sugar and why not maple syrup.

This is another winner recipe as it has a wonderful flavour, it’s cheap, low in calories, it can be prepared in less than half an hour and with ingredients I have in my pantry.


Orange infused Teriyaki Chicken, recipe by Ivy

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves:  4


2 chicken breasts (about 500 grams)
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Marinade

½ cup white dry wine
1 tablespoon petimezi (grape molasses)
1 juicy orange (juice and zest)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated

Wash and dry chicken breasts and cut into 1 cm pieces and marinate for at least three hours. Drain and reserve marinade.

In a non stick sautéing pan brush with the olive oil and heat the pan.  Sauté the garlic and if you don’t like garlic, you may remove it.

Add the chicken and sauté  on both sides and then add salt and pepper and the marinade.

Lower the heat, cover the pan and cook it for 10 minutes, until tender.

Serve with rice pilaf and a salad.

(If you want to make your sauce more shiny, dissolve 1 tablespoon corn starch in ½ cup chicken stock and mix until the sauce thickens).

In this recipe I did not add the corn starch and chicken broth because as I am still on a diet, I didn’t want it to have too much sauce.

  5. I am glad you used petimezi instead of sake. It has a much better taste than sake anyway…

  6. Ivy, I love this recipe! I love both Teriyaki Chicken and Lemon Chicken so this must be fabulous! I do not cook with oranges as often as I should so I am interested to see what flavor it imparts to the chicken. And I love that you lighten your great recipes!

  7. As always, your good dishes.
    See you soon.

  8. I’ve never used petimezi, but I’d love to try it. This dish sounds full of tangy flavors, light, and delicious!

  12. I never tried ‘petimezi’ but it must taste really good! I have recently finished my third bottle of mirin in two months.. I have started to cook more Japanese recipes, and now that I got the hangs of it, found that it complements many traditional dishes very well. I agree that dry wine with a sweetener is a very reasonable substitution.
