★ Sugar
50 g
★Sesame oil
50 ml
Beaten egg
as needed
Frying oil
For frying
Japanese leek

1. Pierce the chicken breasts on both sides with a fork to tenderize it and make it easier for the flavors to penetrate it.
2. Combine the ingredients marked ★ (soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil) and marinate the chicken in the mixture for at least 1 hours. (Turn the chicken over occasionally.)
3. Heat the frying oil, dip the chicken in the egg and then coat with katakuriko.
4. Deep fry the chicken with the skin side up first over relatively low heat. When it's just about cooked through turn it over and continue frying.
5. While you fry the chicken, put the marinade in a pan, add some sliced leek and boil down.
6. Slice the fried chicken into 1.5 to 2 cm wide pieces and put in a serving plate.
7. Pour the leek sauce over the chicken to finish.
