But before you do, let me tell you one more highlight of this recipe. The sauce plays an important role in this dish. Therefore, Jasbir has ensured that it turns out to be velvety in texture, just like Cheesecake Factory’s makes it.

FAQs About Cheesecake Factory Teriyaki Chicken

  • Skinless Chicken – Jasbir recommends the use of boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breast meat for the best flavor and texture. It makes the dish more flavorful as the flavors of the marinate are nicely soaked in by the meat.
  • Rest The Chicken – Resting the chicken is essential for retaining all the juices.
  • Space Out The Chicken – While cooking the chicken, we’ve spread out the pieces on the pan, leaving some gaps in between. This helped the chicken cook evenly from every side. 
  • Cook On Medium Flame – In order to ensure that the sauce does not get burned while the chicken gets thoroughly cooked, work with a medium flame. 
  • Use Meat Thermometer – Make use of a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature that should be 165°F.

Recipe Variations For Different Diets

  • Gluten-free Teriyaki Chicken – One of the most important ingredients required for making teriyaki chicken is soy sauce. However, it should be noted that most of the bottled soy sauces available in the market are not gluten-free. Therefore, you can opt for gluten-free soy sauce or use its substitutes like Tamari or Coconut Aminos.
  • Vegan Teriyaki Chicken – If you follow a vegan diet, you can replace chicken with a block of tofu, soy curls or mock meat to prepare this dish.
