1.5 kg (3 lb) roasting chicken
1/2 cup Japanese soy sauce
1/2 cup mirin or dry sherry
2 tablespoons sugar
1 clove garlic
pinch salt
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
few drops sesame or vegetable oil

Joint the chicken and then, with a heavy cleaver, cut each drumstick
and thigh in halves. Cut breast in halves lengthways, then cut each
half across into three pieces. Wings are cut in three at the joints
and the tips discarded or put into the stock pot. The back may be
cut across into four pieces, or used for stock if preferred.

Combine soy sauce, mirin and sugar in a large bowl. Crush garlic
with a good pinch of salt and add to bowl together with ginger and
sesame oil. Put chicken pieces one at a time into the marinade,
turning them so they are coated all over. Let them stand in the
marinade for at least 1 hour, turning them two or three times, or
marinate overnight if more convenient.

Preheat oven to 200 :C (400 :F). Oil a large baking dish and put
pieces of chicken in a single layer in the dish. Roast in hot oven
for 15 minutes, then turn each piece over with tongs and roast for
10 minutes longer. Turn oven down to moderate, 170 :C (350 :F),
pour away fat from the baking dish, and spoon some of the marinade
over the chicken.

Return chicken to oven for a further 20 - 25 minutes, basting with
marinade every 10 minutes, until chicken is tender, well glazed
and browned. Serve hot with rice, or cold as an appetizer or picnic

Note: To cook chicken teriyaki in a frying pan, drain the pieces
of chicken well, reserving marinade. Dry chicken on absorbent paper
and pierce the skin a few times with a fork. Heat 2 tablespoons
oil in a large, heavy frying pan and put in chicken pieces, skin
side down. Brown on one side, then turn with tongs and brown on
other side. Pour away oil, add half the marinade to pan, turn heat
low. Cover and cook for a further 5 minutes or until chicken is
well glazed and brown and marinade is quite thick.
