Spicy Chicken Teriyaki

Such a busy few days! No fear, I am still here πŸ™‚ Today I am sharing my recipe for Spicy Chicken Teriyaki. I LOVE mixing flavors. Sweet or spicy with salty is one of my favorite combinations in meals. This one is a definite make again for future dinners. I hope you enjoy it!

Spicy Chicken Teriyaki


4-6 chicken thighs

(you can use whatever cut of chicken you want, just change bake time)

1/4 low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons of Srirracha Hot Sauce (Or to taste)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon of pepper


  1. Combine ingredients for marinade and marinate chicken for at least 2-4 hours
  2. Preheat oven to 375 F
  3. Place chicken pieces on a baking pan without marinade (reserve marinade)
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, covered
  5. Meanwhile, reduce marinade in a sauce pot to about 1/2
  6. Remove cover from chicken and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes uncovered, basting with marinade frequently.

Serve with Sushi Rice or Coriander-Cumin Rice (recipe tomorrow!)

  1. This looks so good. I’m going to find a way to do this on a grill.

    • After you remove the chicken from the marinade, reduce the marinade. Grill chicken, as you normally do but as you grill, baste the chicken with the marinade frequently πŸ™‚ The more you baste the chicken, the thicker and more concentrated the sauce will get on the chicken and it will lock in the moisture πŸ™‚ Have fun!!

  2. I think we have the same taste for food, I love anything with a hint of sweetness or spiciness in salty food as well

  3. Mmm sounds great, I don’t think I’ve ever had spicy teriyaki before! Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  4. Great use of flavours and I love that you reduce the marinade before basting the chicken.

  5. Great recipe, I love the flavors here. I think it’s just the right amount of spicy. Have a good long weekend!

  6. Now I must ask.. how spicy? lol. It doesn’t seem spicy from the recipe but you never know with you Samina lol. But you know I love a great, easy recipe and this is it. I hope you and the family enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. And remember, stress free πŸ˜‰

    • LOL Well, spicy is as much Sirracha as you want to add. This one has a nice kick without making you run for water πŸ™‚ I had a very good weekend and it was definitely stress-reducing. It was good to be with the family. *hugs*
