Updated October 29, 2009. I reattempt to make Teriyaki Chicken like Sarku Japan. Here's my not too bad version. Let me know what you think of it!
One of our favorite food court booth in the mall is Sarku Japan where your food is made to order. Whenever we see a Sarku Japan outlet at the mall, hubby and I will be torn to choose between Teriyaki Chicken (by Sarku Japan) or other delicious stuff offered in the food court. Most of the time, we will both end up ordering the same thing from Sarku Japan’s teppanyaki grill; Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables and rice.
It’s been quite a while since we indulge some Teriyaki Chicken from Sarku Japan. So tonite, I’ve decided to duplicate their teriyaki chicken. Hubby and I both thought the taste was quite similar. We could definitely use less of the oil that probably came from the chicken ski (and fat??) or maybe the vegetable oil itself. Next time, I would definitely use skinless chicken with all the fat trimmed. For this dish, I used chicken thigh, just like Sarku Japan did! I thought the color was a little off, mine was a little darker in comparison with Sarku Japan’s teriyaki chicken. I paired the teriyaki chicken with some stir fried cabbage and white rice. I never like the stir fried vegetables that Sarku Japan serves, as they tasted more like warmed salad. The vegetable are not cooked to my liking; bland and still quite raw (at least true for the location near me!)! There’s definitely room for improvement and we shall definitely start with the skin!!!
