5. When the skin gets nice and brown, you can turn over.

*this is why we call Teri-Yaki. “Teri” means caramel glazed and “Yaki” means BBQ or Lightly burned.
*Try not to flip the meat many times, one place the meat just leave it until you get this color. Otherwise you won’t get nice caramelized sauce flavor.



6. Add sliced onion and put a lid on the pan. Keep cooking over low heat until it’s done(about 5~6 minutes)

*it may look too dry at first, but moisture will come out from the onion and chicken itself.
