Chicken Nanban

A recipe using chicken breast that's both kind to your body and your wallet.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken breast
2
Cake flour
as needed
Beaten egg
2
Vegetable oil
a little less than needed for deep frying
For the sauce:
Rice vinegar
3 tablespoons
Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
Raw cane sugar (or regular sugar)
2 tablespoons
Mirin
2 tablespoons
Cooking sake
1 tablespoon
Tartar Sauce:
Boiled egg
2
Mayonnaise (I used light mayo)
2 tablespoons
Ketchup
1 tablespoon
Milk
1 tablespoon
Finely chopped onions
2 tablespoons
Dried parsley
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Thinly slice the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
2. Add the ingredients for the marinade into a small saucepan and let it simmer gently. Combine all of the ingredients for the tartar sauce in a separate bowl.
3. Coat the chicken from Step 1 in a layer of flour and then a layer of beaten egg and fry in a little oil.
4. While the chicken from Step 3 is still hot, place it in the marinade and leave for a while for the flavours to soak in.
5. To finish, simply arrange on a plate with the tartar sauce.
