Teriyaki Chicken with Hokkien Noodle Stirfry. Mmm. Teriyaki Chicken. In my opinion though, food tastes a lot better made from scratch. The stuff you get at Sushi is so good, so when I made my own sushi I needed to make Teriyaki Chicken.

Let's the cooking begin.

(For optimal results, marinate overnight or so. I just make it in the morning and then cook it at dinner time. Just letting you know.)

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Ingredients

For the Chicken:
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 boneless chicken breast halves, cut in small strips.
Salt and pepper to taste. (Screw that I can already taste it.)

For the actual meal:
Noodles, I recommend Hokkien noodles.

Step 2: Mix & Slice

Mix the soy sauce, dark brown sugar, oil, ground ginger and minced garlic. Depending on the amount of chicken you're using, you may need to increase the amount of marinade. It's better to have too much marinate than none at all. Chop your chicken up and I marinate mine personally by putting the chicken in a freezer bag, adding the marinade, tie it off and give it a good mix.

Step 3: Prep for Later.

Here's a tip, save some time, and chop up your vegetables now!

I used beans, capsicum, carrot and spinach, but you can add in anything you want really. I quickly semi-steamed the vegetables to take the crunch out of them for later.

Step 4: Cook Off the Chicken.


Spray a pan, turn on the stovetop, and cook. Cut the chicken in half to test whether it's cooked, it should look whiteish.

The chicken in the picture is indeed, not cooked.

Step 5: Last Step!

Open a packet of your noodles, and prepare it as instructed by the package. (Hokkien noodles are easy, just put them in a bowl with boiled water.)

Throw them into a preheated wok sprayed or oiled. Make sure they're all separated too. Add in your vegetables and your meat and give it a good mix through. Looks a bit dry? Yeah, that's likely. Get some soy sauce to moisten it up.

Serve & Enjoy.

    Looks great!

    One note, though - you mention using capsicum; what you have pictured is a red bell pepper. While the term capsicum actually covers a broad range of more or less the entire pepper family, it is most commonly used (at least, in the Americas) to refer to a Chili Pepper.

    In any case, while you're not wrong in using a generic term, it could confuse some people so you may want to use the more specific name of the ingredient...

    Bell peppers ARE capscums, just capsicums at the bottom end of the heat scale.

    First, I must commend your on your outstanding grammar.

    However, in my country of residence (Australia), a red bell pepper is referred to as a 'capsicum'. Interestingly, a 'pepper' usually refers to a Chili in Australia.

    That's kind of interesting.  I am from the SW US and I have never heard of anyone calling a pepper of any kind capsicum.  Amongst the people I have talked to we usually call peppers by their full names.  (i.e. bell pepper, chili pepper, poblano pepper, Dr. Pepper)

    You're missing an important ingredient from your teriyaki sauce.  Teriyaki sauce is traditionally made with soy, sugar and mirin.  Mirin is a very sugary rice wine with a high alchohol content.  It enhances the flavour, helps it thicken during cooking, and helps cook vegetables more quickly by creating more steam.
    Sake also is used to give it another flavour sometimes and help cook vegetables faster.

    My own personal version adds a bit of sushizu (rice vinegar) to give it a mellower wider flavour.
