Teriyaki Chicken was one of my favorite things to eat in Hawaii. It is tender, flavorful, and goes great with any Hawaiian dish. You almost can’t have a luau or Hawaiian party without having teriyaki chicken… and maybe some Spam. Some people can’t quite seem to get grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken right, and let me tell you why…
The Secret to Perfect Teriyaki Chicken
The trick to having good, authentic, chicken teriyaki is using the right cut of chicken. You always want to use chicken thighs. I promise, if you want AUTHENTIC teri chicken, chicken breasts just won’t cut it. No matter how you cook the chicken breasts, it will not be the same. They are two completely different cuts of meat. Just like how a beef roast cut is completely different from a beef filet (not that I am comparing chicken thighs to a filet). If you have been making teriyaki chicken using chicken breasts and have wondered why it isn’t quite right, this is why. Ok, I think I have made my point.
