Servings 4


  • 4 Large Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Teriyaki Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil, optional
  • ½ Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • ½ Tablespoon Ground Ginger
  • Garlic powder, as needed
  • Onion powder, as needed
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper, as needed
  • Green Onion, Chopped for Garnish
  • Canola Oil


  • Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, rice wine vinegar, granulated sugar, brown sugar and ground ginger. Set aside.
  • Season the chicken thighs with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Sear chicken on both sides for about 8-10 minutes on each side. 
  • Add soy sauce mixture to the pan with the chicken and continue cooking on medium heat until the sauce begins to thicken. Once you’ve reached your desired consistency, garnish with chopped green onion and serve over rice. Enjoy!


If the sauce is too thin for whatever reason, you may create an additional cornstarch slurry with equal parts cold water and cornstarch and add to the sauce to thicken ta bit more. 
If the Sauce is too thick, add in a little chicken broth to thin it out some.
