    Very good! Made this with some off the shelf soba noodles would recommend making more sauce and it would probably turn out perfect. Will make again!

    This recipe was absolutely delicious. The only thing different I did was add some cornstarch to thicken the sauce.

    My family loved the recipe. However, as the cook, I was disappointed the color was not darker and all the liquid left over. I will make again but next time cook down the liquid first.

    Beautiful, I did everything without lid, for 800g of meat there should be slightly more of each ingredient than noted, otherwise you will have no sauce. Since I did not have sake nor mirin, I used regular wine with little drizzle of vinegar and drizzle of spirit. Turn out great. Thanks for the recipe.

    Tasty recipe. You need to boil down the sauce with pan uncovered in order to get that brown color. Even then, I did not get a dark brown. Maybe I should have let it go longer

    It was fine, but to be honest, I expected something else. The sauce tastes differently from the sauce that is used for chicken in the restaurant where I tried teriyaki for the first time. And I don’t know what I did wrong, but the chicken turned out dry and hard.

    Best chicken ever omg. I never thought to add parsley to it and it made the chicken even better :0

    It was lovely, reminded me of a chicken teriyaki I used to ate as a child. Though it was a bit sweet for me. Will cut down on the sugar next time

    This recipe...this recipe literally has me spoiled now. I can literally no longer order teriyaki chicken at my local Japanese restaurant as this has somehow bested theirs. The sauce is of the gods and thickened up beautifully as the chicken finished cooking. The final product looked as amazing as it tasted. Thank you for this...really.

    The flavoring was good for the marinade but not enough. Also the sauce never thickened. I cooked it for the max time of 10 minutes, it reduced, but it didn't thicken.

    Really loved this!! So much flavour in the sauce, went down a treat. Will deffo be using this recipe a lot. I paired it with some sticky rice and tender stem broccoli, yum!

    Quick and satisfying. I had to chop and channel -- no mirin, so used white wine; no brown sugar, so used date syrup. Still fantastic.

    This dish was a hit with the whole family. It was a little sweet so I squeezed a little lemon juice in to balance it out. Served with nice sticky sushi rice and a little green leaf salad with a Japanese dressing. Yum

    Bomb! Will definitely make this again and again. Is there a way to make this so that there is extra sauce?
