Kaiko San Chicken (Teriyaki Chicken)
Both my brother and I were born in Japan, and even though we returned to the States when I was young it remains one of my favorite places. My mother had a woman who would come daily and help with the children, cook, clean…my mother had it quite good. Kaiko San gave me some of my first memories of meals shared around the table, this chicken recipe was one of her signature dishes and one we continued to eat long after leaving Japan.
This recipe is an adaptation of the chicken Kaiko used to make…it is without a doubt the best Teriyaki Chicken I’ve ever eaten.
