Teriyaki Sesame Chicken

Teriyaki Sesame Chicken

with green beans and fragrant rice

Though small and simple, the toasted sesame seeds in this recipe bring a nice nutty flavour to this Asian-inspired recipe. As an added bonus, they also give the tangy teriyaki chicken welcome texture and crunch.

Pot with Lid


Cook the Rice
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid. 
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover with the lid and cook for 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Get Prepped
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Trim the green beans and chop into thirds.
  • Halve and deseed the chilli. Thinly slice half lengthways, and finely chop the other half.
  • Trim the scallion and thinly slice.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Toast the Seeds
  • Place a large pan over medium heat (without oil).
  • Once hot, add the sesame seeds.
  • Dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 1-2 mins. 
  • Once cooked, transfer to a bowl and set aside. 

TIP: Watch them like a hawk—they can burn easily!

Fry the Chicken
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add chicken and sesame oil, season with salt and pepper and fry until golden, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Add onion and green beans. Cook until softened, 3-4 mins. 
  • Add the garlic and fry until fragrant, 1 min.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Finishing Touches
  • Add the teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, chopped chilli and 75ml water (double for 4p) to the pan.
  • Stir everything together and simmer until the sauce is sticky and the chicken is cooked through, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is safe to eat when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the sesame seeds.

TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel the sauce needs loosening.

Garnish and Serve
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls.
  • Top with the teriyaki chicken and veg.
  • Finish with a sprinkle of scallion and sliced chilli (use less if you don't like spice).
