681 gm Chicken thighs, with skin
1 pinch Sea salt, fine (to taste)
1/2 tbsp Ghee
3 1/2 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (Terriyaki Sauce)
3/4 tbsp Fish sauce (Terriyaki Sauce)
2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (Terriyaki Sauce)
1 tsp minced Ginger root (Terriyaki Sauce)
1 tsp Garlic (grated; Terriyaki Sauce)
1 tsp Sesame seeds
1 green onion (stem) Green onion (chopped)


  1. Pat dry the chicken and remove the bone (if you use chicken thigh). Lightly season the chicken with salt over the skin.
  2. Heat ghee over medium/high heat. When hot, add chicken. Skin side down. Pan fry for about 10 mins until the skin is crispy. *be careful about the splatter. Use a lid to cover the pan and prevent it from splattering.
  3. Flip and pan-fry the other side until the chicken is completely cooked through. Drain the oil from the saute pan and set the chicken aside.
  4. Combine ingredients under "Teriyaki sauce". Heat the sauce over medium to medium-low heat. When the sauce is thickened, add the chicken back to the pan. Coat the sauce over the chicken.
  5. Wait for 5 mins before slicing the chicken into bite sizes. Sprinkle toasted white sesame seeds and chopped scallion (optional). Serve with steamed broccoli, mashed potato, or cauliflower rice.
