~ Teriyaki Chicken!!

One of my all time favorite Chinese dish is Teriyaki Chicken and today I am sharing a tried, tested and trusted recipe.


–  ¼ cup soy sauce

– ⅓ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

– 3 tbsp honey

– 1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

– 1 tsp sesame oil (you can use any other oil as well, but sesame oil works best)

– 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, fat removed

– 1 tbsp olive oil

– 1½ tbsp unsalted butter

– Green onion and sesame seeds for garnish


1. In a large bowl, mix together all marinade ingredients: ¼ cup soy sauce, ⅓ cup orange juice, 3 tbsp honey, 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp sesame oil.

2. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and place into marinade. Stir and cover with plastic wrap and marinate on the counter 20 min. Do not refrigerate. 

3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp olive oil. Remove chicken from marinade and put the chicken in the hot pan and sauté, stirring occasionally until golden brown and cooked through.

4. Transfer chicken to a bowl.

5. Remove pan from heat and pour the marinade into the pan, add 1½ tbsp butter and place back over medium/high heat. Bring to a boil stirring constantly, until slightly thickened and then remove from heat. 

6. Add chicken back to the pan and stir to combine. Serve over hot white rice or brown rice, garnished with fresh green onion and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

~ Chicken Tikka Sandwhich…

Hi y’all!! Howdy?!

So, today I am sharing with you a recipe that’s recently become one of my favorites and it’s none other than Chicken Tikka Sandwich!!!

So here’s how to make it –


– Chicken Tikka chopped (on how to make Chicken Tikka check out my earlier post: ~ Chicken Tikka / Tandoori Chicken!!)

– White Bread Slices 8 slices

– 1 medium Onion chopped

– 1 small Green Bell Pepper chopped

– Fresh coriander leaves, 2 tablespoons

– Green chutney as required

– Chaat masala 1/2 teaspoon

– Mayonnaise 2 tablespoons

– Butter as required


1) Mash the chicken tikkas in a masher.

2) Add onion, green bell pepper, coriander leaves, green chutney and chaat masala and mix. Add mayonnaise and mix well.

3) Cut the edges of the bread. Butter the bread slices on one side only.

4) Spread the filling evenly over four slices and cover with another slice each. Apply a little butter on the outer sides of the sandwich and place them one by one in the preheated grill and grill till they are golden, if you want to eat them grilled, else you can serve them as is, they taste better cold in my opinion.

Serve with chips and your choice of drink! Enjoy!!

Happy Monday!! Wishing you a great week ahead!!
