Chicken Teriyaki with Yasai Itame


Whew!!! Time is really running very quick! This is my 100th recipe posted in this blog. . . . Let’s have a simple Japanese food! Chicken Teriyaki…There are many ways to cook chicken teriyaki, you can grill, fry, cook in griddle and even pan-fried. What really matter most is your teriyaki sauce. My version is flour coated and fried…Usually this cooking style is used in restaurant because you can make your meat looks bigger…Customers sometimes looks for the serving size and their value for money…Did you know that stir-fry vegetables I used in this recipe such as beansprout are a great source of  all types of vitamins (A, B, C, D, E and K), folic acid and are an excellent source of iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc…
