De-bone your chicken thighs, keep skins on. Add thighs to a bowl, and salt the skins.
Add thighs to a frying pan with a splash of oil, skin side down, and cook for 4-5 minutes until the skin is nice and brown. Then turn the thigh, and cook for another 4 minutes. Keep turning the thighs until they are cooked through. Leave them on a board to rest.
Teriyaki time. Add 10 tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of mirin, 3 tablespoons of water and a teaspoon of ginger to a pan. Mix them all together, and then add a level tablespoon of sugar. Stir it in. Cook the sauce until it is nice and thick and then remove from the heat.
Once the rice is ready, add a heaped teaspoon of wasabi paste to it. Mix it in.
Slice up your chicken thighs. Add a big spoonful of the sticky rice to a place. Top with 2 thighs, pour over your thick teriyaki sauce and tuck in!
