Scale

Ingredients

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons white sugar
⅔ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sake
¼ cup mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
2 tablespoons cooking oil

Instructions

Step 1
Rinse chicken, and pat dry. In a glass baking dish or bowl, stir together the ginger, garlic, sugar, soy sauce, sake and mirin. Place the chicken into the mixture to marinate. Refrigerate, covered for several hours, or overnight.

Step 2
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken pieces into the pan skin-side down, reserving marinade. Cook until light brown, then flip and brown the other side. Drain off grease, and pour the marinade into the pan.

Step 3
Cover, and reduce heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking, shaking the skillet occasionally, until marinade is reduced to a nice thick sauce and chicken pieces are fully cooked.

Notes

To Bake: bake the chicken pieces in a 325 degree F (165 C) oven for 45 minutes or until done, turning once and basting with the marinade halfway through cooking.

To Grill: cook over medium-high heat, turning several times for even cooking. Brush with marinade when the chicken is half-cooked.
