Light chicken tenders with plenty of volume! Recommended for those on a diet or working on increasing muscle mass. A flavor you can become addicted to. Doesn't have a strong smell, great for bento lunchboxes.
Add the chicken to a bowl. Grate the garlic and add with all of the ● flavoring ingredients. Mix everything together well and let soak for 10 minutes.
Heat up a frying pan and add the chicken. Don't add any oil as the sesame oil included in the flavoring should be enough. It's best if you have a teflon non-stick frying pan. Set aside the marinade.
Fry on medium-low heat while constantly turning over. Once the top has turned white, add the marinade and fry on low heat while turning over, until it's cooked through.
Transfer to a serving plate and top with the juices in the frying pan. It's delicious if you serve with shredded cabbage or cucumbers.
Story Behind this Recipe
I'm having to prepare a lot of chicken tenders, which are high in protein and low in fat, for my husband's diet. Since chicken tenders are fairly light, I made these to have more punch and be more filling. My husband, who loves steak, is completely satisfied with this dish!
Adding the sesame oil to the marinade gives this it's Japanese flavor without using too much oil. Once you try it, you'll be addicted to it! They're also good cold, and since frying them reduces the garlic smell, these are great for bento lunchboxes. They go very well with a sweet omelet! If your chicken tenders have sinews please remove them.
