Gourmet Club Main Course Part 3: Chicken with Teriyaki Dipping Sauce

After starting the main course in Thailand and then taking to a trip to Europe with the kielbasa and Dijon, we are back in the Far East – Japan.

I made a Teriyaki sauce that I used for marinating and dipping. If you do this, DO NOT REUSE THE SAUCE. Make two batches and use one for each, else you may be inviting problems. I decided to take boneless and skinless chicken thighs and each guest had 1/2 a thigh. It was delicious.

This is a very easy sauce to make. I’ve seen some recipes without the pineapple juice and can’t imagine making them as the juice adds both sweetness and flavor.

Giving the mirin a boil.

Adding the rest and cook.

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade

Prep Time: 10 Min | Cook Time: 20 Min | Makes: 1 2/3 cups


  • 2/3 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 sm can of pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup white corn syrup
  • 7 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 dash red pepper flakes


1. Bring mirin to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour in soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, pineapple juice and corn syrup. Season with garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes; simmer an additional 5 minutes. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.
