Normaly, when eating out at Japanese restaurant, I'll order this dish , it's my favourite. I like the char on the skin, so fragrance and the sauce. The sauce are heavenly delicious, and I always do hope they serves more sauce...:p...
This month is a Japan Month for Asian Food Fest, hosted by Alan of Travellingfoodies ,and I'm thinking why not make some chicken teriyaki ?! And also in the post, Alan provide some Japanese food links, and I choose the easiest one...from norecipe blog . It is easy and yet so delicious!! I serve this teriyaki chicken with poached egg and some cherry tomatoes.

Here's  the recipe from norecipe

Ingredients:
Japan Chicken Teriyaki
1 chicken leg with skin on and deboned (about 12 ounces)
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 salt
2 tsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp sake

For the sauce :
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp sake
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey

Rub the ginger and salt into the chicken and let it sit for at least 30 minutes
After it's marinated, use paper towels to dry the chicken as best as you can, removing any excess ginger pulp.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom frying pan over medium heat.
Place the chicken skin side down in the pan and fry until golden brown on one side.
Flip the chicken, the add 1 tbsp sake and quickly cover the pan with a lid for about 5 minutes.
Prepare the teriyaki sauce, stir to combine.
Remove the lid and drain any remaining liquid and oil. Use paper towel to soak up any excess oil.
Turn up the heat to high, then add the teriyaki sauce.
Let this mixture boil, while flipping the chicken repeatedly to coat evenly.
The chicken teriyaki is done when most of the liquid has evaporated and the sauce forms a thick glaze around the chicken.

Sesame Chicken Wings

Sometimes,when we cook refering to a cookbook, we don't have all the needed ingredients.This goes with this fried chicken wings too.The recipe call for reddish cheese, but I don't have, I only have Sichuan Beancurd with Chilli and Sesame oil.So I replaced the reddish cheese with Sichuan Beancurd, and its turn tasty too.Although it says Chilli in Beancurd, but it's not spicy.

From: My Favourite Chicken Wings by famous Cuisine.

Ingredients:  
5 chicken wings
sesame seed

Marinade:
1 egg
2 pieces of reddish cheese (I used Sichuan Beancurd with Chilli & Sesame oil)
1 tsp of reddish cheese juice
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp tapioca flour

Method:
Rinse chicken wing and drain well.
To make chicken stick: Remove the chicken meat from the bone until to the edges,turn over the chicken meat.
Season with marinade and marinate for 30 minutes.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds onto the wings,and deep fried into hot oil until golden in colour.
Dish out ,drain well and serve.

*As for the chicken stick, the meat will go back to normal shape while marinate, you need to push the meat to the edges and sprinkle some sesame seed and immediately put it into hot oil,then you'll get the boxing type.
