The absolute best dishes to prepare are stir fries. They’re so quick and easy, full of healthy, fresh and crispy vegetables {But I dint use any veges} and beautiful sauces; it’s usually a guarantee whoever you’re cooking for will love the outcome — no matter what the flavors. There is nothing as perfect like the teriyaki sauce especially when making meat dishes. I’m all over this sauce like bees on honey.

Because to this teriyaki, I added a hint of shredded coconut for the garnishing to add just the perfect amount of flavor to it, and a tiny amount of water to make the teriyaki sauce into a beautiful thick syrup that envelopes the chicken and gives it an amazing texture and an irresistible sweet flavor.

Let’s get cooking.


Making “Caramelized Chicken Teriyaki”.

Prep time: 5 mins    Cook time: 25 mins   Total time: 30 mins

Yields/Serves = 2 pax.

*Main Ingredients*


-2 pieces of boneless chicken

-3 Tablespoons of soy sauce

-4 Tablespoons of water

-3 Tablespoons of sugar

-Vegetable oil

-1/4 cup of corn starch or all purpose flour

-Seasonings : salt, black pepper, cayenne chili flakes


  1. wash the chicken first, dice them into size-able pieces. Coat them well with flour. Pre- heat the pan with vegetable oil on medium high heat. – NB: We are shallow frying chicken, since it will cook more fast than beef.


2. Once the oil is hot, place the chicken pieces into the oil and shallow fry them for 10-15 mins till golden brown.


3. On a separate dish, add paper towels, place the chicken on them to drain excess oil, while you pour out the extra oil to a differ dish.

P11102804. Using the same pan, {No need to add more oil}, Add in the cooked chicken, fry on medium high for 2 mins. Sprinkle in the seasoning- of salt, black pepper and cayenne chili flakes. Combine well.


5. Add in the soy sauce, sugar and sprinkle in the water {Bit by bit}, as you mix them. Cover for 2 mins as it stir fries.


6. Serve immediately while still hot. For the garnish, its best to do it when plating.

For the garnish I used, rice, Shredded coconut and sea-same seeds. Feel free to throw in some green veges like – green onions, broccoli or lettuce. This dish goes really well, with a cold glass of milk. {Or maybe is the Kalenjin in me talking}.

Bon Apetite. 🙂


Love and Love.
