Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

This is one of the easiest most tasty dinners ever! The homemade teriyaki sauce is absolutely to die for, and super simple to make with this chicken. Let the chicken sit in the marinade for as long as possible but not longer than 24 hours or it can start to break down the chicken. I try to always do a few hours, so plan ahead. The teriyaki sauce with its sweet and savory flavors is a favorite flavor and soaks into the chicken leaving it juicy and amazing every time!

Grilling can seem intimidating but it couldn’t be easier. Remember to heat the grill and clean it off before grilling. You do not want leftover food from your last grilling party to taint your chicken. Also don’t forget to oil your grill! Super important, so that the chicken doesn’t stick and rip when flipping. Use tongs to hold a wad of paper towels that have been dipped in some oil to grease your hot grill grates. This is one of my family’s favorites and I know it will be yours too!

Ingredients for Teriyaki Chicken

Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts: For best flavor and grilling use fresh over frozen chicken breasts.
  • Homemade Teriyaki: You can use your favorite bottled or you can make this out of this world homemade Teriyaki Sauce
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish: These are optional but they add both flavor and color.

How to Make Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

  1. Marinated: In a medium-sized bowl add the chicken breasts. Add the prepared teriyaki sauce reserving ¼ cup.
  2. Grill: Preheat your grill to high heat. Add the chicken to the grill and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink.
  3. Cover and Enjoy: Baste the chicken with reserved glaze and put it on a plate and serve.

The Best Teriyaki Chicken Tips

This is succulent and juicy and full of flavor!

  • Chicken: Chicken breasts are easy to grill and can be juicy and tender, with just a few tips.
  • Pound: Pound the chicken to even thickness.
  • Marinate: Let the teriyaki sauce sit on the chicken for at least 30 minutes and as long as possible up to 24 hours. The sauce will help the chicken remain juicy and full of flavor.
  • Temperature: Cook the chicken till the temperature is 155 degrees. Remove it from the grill, cover it and let it sit for up to 10 minutes. It will raise to the perfect temperature of 165 while sitting. Making it safe to eat.
  • Baste After it’s done grilling: Use the reserved teriyaki sauce (this is the part of the sauce that should not have come in contact with the raw chicken) to coat the chicken after it’s been removed from the grill. The sugars in the sauce will cause burning on the outside of the chicken if put on while grilling.
  • Baked: You can bake this instead of grilling, follow the instructions that you can find here.
  • Other: Change out the chicken breasts for chicken thighs if you desire.

What to Serve with Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

Outdoor grilling is a wonderful way to keep the heat outside and the food delicious. We love to grill up extra teriyaki chicken and use it throughout the week in stir fry, this casserole, and salads. This chicken keeps beautifully in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can eat it warmed or cold. When we have it right off the grill I like to keep the rest of the sides light. It makes for a super refreshing meal. Top it off with a slice of this luscious lemon cake for the perfect meal.

These classic French Financiers Cakes make the most delicious little treat. Perfect with your morning or afternoon tea, these Brown Butter Almond Tea Cakes are a great sweet snack and edible gift idea. These Mini Almond Cakes are also easily customisable with many optional additions.

Why we love this recipe

Financiers make the best tea time treats if you ask me! They are very quick and easy to prepare without a mixer and can easily be customised with many other ingredients like fruits, nuts, chocolate or even coffee like these Coffee Financiers!

Packed with flavours thanks to the Brown Butter and Almond Meal, these mini almond cakes are super soft, light and fluffy. The perfect afternoon sweet treat and a great edible gift idea!

What are Financiers

A "Financier" is a traditional French tea cake made with Almond Meal and Brown Butter ("beurre-noisette" in French). They can be enjoyed plain like here, or flavoured with many other ingredients like fruits, chocolate, spices, nuts,...

They are known for their distinctive rectangular shape (or oval like here) that resembles a gold bar - which could explain the origin of their name.

Ingredients

Financiers Cakes are super easy to make out of 5 basic ingredients, plus another optional 2.

How to make Financiers Cakes

Making Financiers is quite easy and straight forward, but you will need one saucepan to make the brown butter and two bowls to mix the ingredients.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use Melted Butter instead of Brown Butter?

Absolutely, although most of the flavour comes from the nutty brown butter so I highly recommend using it!

Can I used Almond Flour instead of Almond Meal?

Yes, you can use both. I personally prefer Almond Meal for a little bit more texture.

Do I need a Financier Pan?

Financiers usually have a recognisable rectangular (or oval) shape, but you can absolutely use a Regular or Mini Muffin Pan, or Mini Loaf Pan instead! I recommend to use a metal pan instead of silicone for a better caramelisation though.

Financier vs Madeleine

Both are classic French Tea Cakes, but are different both in taste and shape. The financiers only use egg whites and no raising agent like baking powder while Madeleines use whole eggs and baking powder.

Although the most traditional Financiers have a long, rectangular shape, they can be baked using many other small cake tins like a round muffin pan. Madeleines are always baked in a madeleine pan.

Tips for Success

Storing & Freezing Financiers

Financiers Cakes are best eaten fresh, within 24 hours, but can be kept at room temperature for up to 2 days. They can be kept for longer in the fridge but this will make the crumb more dry.

These almond cakes can be frozen, although it will slightly change the texture. I recommend freezing them for up to a month. Leave them to thaw at room temperature when ready to eat, or for a few minutes in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 150 gr (10 1/2 tablesp.) Unsalted Butter
  • 50 gr (1/3 cup) Plain / AP Flour
  • 125 gr (1 1/4 cup) Almond Meal
  • 80 gr (1/2 cup) Icing Sugar or Powdered Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 1 teasp. Vanilla Extract optional
  • Almond Flakes optional, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven on 160'C/325'F and grease a Financier Pan (see note 1). Optionally, flour the pan too.
  • Mak the Brown Butter: place your butter in a small saucepan and turn on low to medium low heat. Cook until the butter has completely melted and starts to get foamy. Keep on cooking, occasionally stirring, the melted butter starts to turn golden and releases a nutty aroma, and you can see small brown specks at the bottom of the saucepan (see note 2). It should take about 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside to cool down.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the Flour, Almond Meal, Icing Sugar and Salt. Mix to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the Egg Whites until slightly froathy (see note 3).
  • Add the cooled Brown Butter, Egg Whites and Vanilla to the dry ingredients. Whisk until just combined.
  • Place the batter in a piping bag and pipe into a Financier Pan (or simply spoon/scoop it). Spread with the back of a spoon if needed, then top with Flaked Almonds (optional).
  • Bake for about 20min, or until lightly golden. Take out of the oven and leave for about 10 minutes before removing from the financier pan (see note 4). Leave on a cooling rack until cold

Notes

General Disclaimer: I highly recommend using the measurements in grams (instead of cups/spoons) for more accuracy and a better result.
  1. If you don't have a Financier Pan, you can use any small cake pan instead like a regular or mini muffin pan or mini loaf pan.
  2. The small specks are the caramelised milk solids than have separated from the fats. They contain most of the flavours of brown butter so don't discard it - make sure you use it all in the batter!
  3. There are no raising agents used here. Slightly whipping the egg whites will incorporate some air into the batter, resulting in a much lighter crumb - but it is optional. I have made financiers with fully whipped egg whites (stiff peaks) and it does work - you will get extremely fluffy cakes. 
  4. The cakes will be very soft when they just come out of the oven so leaving them for 10 minutes in the pan will make it easier to release. Financier batter can be a bit sticky, so if the cakes are sticking to the pan, use a small knife to gently lift the edges until the cakes are released.
