Teriyaki Chicken

Asian cuisine is always a treat for me.

But in the past I have been apprehensive about cooking authentic Asian dishes because the recipes I usually gravitate to require a lot of effort and the ingredients are often hard to come by.

However, yesterday as I was browsing the web for interesting new recipes to try I stumbled upon this Honey Teriyaki recipe on Skinny Taste’s website (check them out for other awesome recipes too). Their recipe looked really simple so I decided to try it.

It turned out to be a super delicious meal that required pretty much zero effort because I used my pressure cooker. I’ll definitely make this again!

Who’s hungry? Vincent, our friend Roan and myself, but this recipe can easily feed 4 to 5 people.


  • 12 chicken drumsticks, skinless
  • 120 ml rice vinegar (this is the same as rice wine — I never knew!)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp sriracha sauce
  • half a cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • green onions for garnish, chopped
  • sesame seeds for garnish
  • cauli rice

Let’s cook

Set your pressure cooker to sauté. Add the rice vinegar, honey, sriracha, soy sauce, garlic and ginger to the pressure cooker. Stir for 5 minutes.

Add the chicken and set the pressure cooker to cook on high pressure for 25 minutes.

After all that effort you deserve a drink. Get a glass of wine. I had an unlabeled red.

Now is a good time to make your rice or cauli rice to accompany the chicken. Once the pressure cooker beeps, release the steam and get ready to dish.

Get your grub

Rice first.

Chicken second.

Now sprinkle some green onions on top.

And finish it off with some sesame seeds.

Bon appétit
