About this Recipe

By: Christina Hills

This comes from my mother who makes it really well and it was one of my favorite recipes growing up!  I have guessed at the measurements below, so you may need to adjust it. messy

This dish goes well with steamed broccoli on the side and either rice, or potatoes.  In the picture I am using trader joes hash browns that I saute in chicken broth so it’s not greasy.

Teriyaki Chicken with Scallions

yummy and easy to make. the recipe below is messy, I'll clean it up afterwards
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time45 minutes
Total Time1 hour
Cuisine: Chinese
Servings: 3 people


  • 6 pieces chicken thighs (2 per person) about 3 lbs
  • 3 bunchs scallions (1 bunch per pound of chicken)
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic (about 6 cloves of garlic)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger grated (about 1 root)
  • 1 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry or sake or vermouth
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


  • Mince the garlic and grate the ginger. You can also do this ahead of time and put a little sesame oil in the garlic to keep it moist and refrigerate this over night. ( I would keep the ginger and garlic separate overnight if you want to do this ahead)
  • Mix the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sherry or sake, sesame oil, and sugar together to make the sauce. Marinate the chicken in the sauce while you do the next step.
  • Cut the scallions into 1 inch length pieces and set asside.
  • Set oven to broil and broil chicken thighs on each side for about 4-7 min each side. Don't use all the sauce. Watch carefully every few min so the chicken does not burn.
  • On the second half, put in the cut up scallions so that they brown, but be careful not to burn them so watch the broiler.
  • Then put the chicken in the oven at 350 for about 20-25 min.
  • Serve over rice or potatoes


This goes really well with steamed broccoli as a side dish.
