Pan Fried Chicken Onion Teriyaki Sauce

If you take classic teriyaki sauce and amp it up with onion and garlic, you get this even more delicious onion teriyaki sauce. Here I pour the sauce over simple pan chicken breasts to get this pan fried chicken onion teriyaki sauce, and I serve this with steamed white rice to soak up all the sauce. This onion teriyaki sauce is definitely a keeper and you will want to pair it with beef steaks, or pork chops, or even pan fried tofu!

    Thank you for the recipe. For the onion after boiled, when you serve you strain the onion? Thanks

      Not really Yopie, I simply gather all the onion and arrange them on the chicken for presentation purpose. You don't have to do this if it is troublesome. :)
