Regional Recipe – Teriyaki Chicken

Not all Japanese dishes require exotic ingredients and time commitment, Teriyaki Chicken is easy, quick and healthy. 
Ingredients
• ¼ cup soy sauce
• ⅓ cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from 1½ medium or 1 large oranges)
• 3 Tbsp honey
• 1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
• 1 tsp sesame oil
• 1½ to 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
• 1 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
• 1½ Tbsp butter or margarine
• Green onion and sesame seeds for garnish, optional
Instructions
1. In a large bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients: ¼ cup soy sauce, ⅓ cup orange juice, 3 Tbsp honey, 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp sesame oil.
2. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and place into marinade. Stir and cover with plastic wrap and marinate on the counter 20 min.
3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil. Remove chicken from marinade with a slotted spoon, reserving marinade in the bowl. Add chicken to the hot pan and sauté, stirring occasionally until golden and cooked through (5 min).
4. Remove pan from heat and transfer chicken to a bowl.
5. Pour reserved marinade into the pan, add 1½ tbsp butter and place back over medium/high heat. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until slightly thickened (1 min) then remove from heat. Add chicken back to the pan and stir to combine. Serve over hot white rice garnished with fresh green onion and a sprinkle of sesame seeds if desired.
