Sweet succulent chicken marinated in a warm Teriyaki sauce made with soy sauce, ginger and honey.
Traditionally teriyaki is made with soy, sake or mirin and sugar. The shine that the sugar in the sauce gives is where the first part of the word “teri”derives “Yaki” refers to the cooking method of grilling or broiling. In this dish the sauce is made with ginger, honey and soy and a little sugar. The flavour is strong, sweet and sticky. Its a flavour that tastes more complex than the sum of its parts.
The rice is cooked in water which has had coconut powder added. This is not how i pictured making coconut rice, i’m not sure what i pictured. It worked really well the flavour was light and fragranced with coconut. The bok choi was a welcome natural flavour.
