Sesame Teriyaki Chicken

This chicken is super easy and can be in the oven in less than 10 minutes. The sauce is a little strong before you bake it, but after its baked, it mellows alot, and the chicken has just the right amount of flavor.

Sesame Teriyaki Chicken
1 chicken, cut up into quarters or eighths, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons sesame seeds

In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, cold water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and ground black pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles.Preheat oven to 400° F (220 degrees C).
Place chicken pieces in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Brush chicken with the sauce.  Bake in the preheated oven (uncovered) for 40 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush with sauce every 10-15 minutes during cooking. ( If you don't have a basting brush you can just spoon the sauce over it from the bottom of the pan.) Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.


  1. Looks yum, I can't wait to try it!

  2. Yuuum! Already prepared my chicken for tonight but I will definetly have to try this on our next chicken night! :)

  3. Hi, I found your blog while looking for help with cute page titles! The guy was saying how your cute font wasn't displaying on his computer. Any chance you can tell me what you did? You obviously got cute page titles now! Mine are blah. In fact, I won't even put them up yet! Also, did you do something to ensure that the fonts would show up on others computer? Thanks so much! my email is prayingforansley @

  4. YUM! I feel like that's every comment that I comment. It really looks good. Your cooking and baking is out of this world!!!!

  5. It looks so delicious and easy. I think I'm going to have to try this soon.

  6. Incredible is simply not adequate to describe this delectable chicken! We had some company over recently, and the Missus prepared this dish. The company was in awe of this delicacy, and cleaned us out of chicken! (well, almost) It was out of this world! The pungent aroma, the succulent taste, and the most appealing image of this chicken makes it a most fabulous dish to serve. May I compliment you on both your culinary and photographic skills, and please put my name on the order list when your book comes out!
    A satisfied customer.
