Here's another way of serving sweet, saucy chicken teriyaki. Don't forget the chopsticks!
Makes about 8 rolls Prep Time 15 minutes
3 tablespoons sushi vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cups cooked Japanese rice, cooled
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 cup cream cheese
1 chicken breast fillet, cut into
3 nori sheets
1/4 cups bottled teriyaki marinade
(Make it from scratch: Teriyaki Sauce)
Japanese mayonnaise for topping
soy sauce and wasabi (optional)
1 In a bowl, mix vinegar, salt, and sugar until dissolved. Add in cooled rice.
2 Assemble the makis: Place a nori sheet on a sushi mat. Spread and press firmly 1 cup rice mixture on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the sheet. Lightly moisten the border with water. Align cucumber, cream cheese, chicken, on the top part of the rice lengthwise. Finish with teriyaki sauce. Roll tightly. Repeat to make another roll. Slice each roll into 8 rolls.
