Chikuwa Fish Stick Chicks for Charaben

Chikuwa Fish Stick Chicks for Charaben

Is it a baby chick? Or a penguin?? They're cute either way.
Decorate your regular chikuwa with sausages!

Ingredients: 2 chicks

Wiener sausage
Nori seaweed
a small amount
Cheese or carrot
a small amount


1. Cut the sausage in half lengthwise. Cut small cuts on the sides for the wings, and pan fry or microwave them.
2. Push the sausage halves into diagonally cut chikuwa halves. Add eyes and noses...and done! (The sausages can be inserted easier if you cut down the ends that go on a little.)
3. These are the tools I used. The mouth is cut up with a smushed straw.
4. They are small, but stars of the bento.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had some chikuwa fish sticks and wiener sausages in the fridge, so I kind of forced them together to make a cute charaben item.
