Story Behind this Recipe

I made this based on a limited edition bento sold at a certain convenience store chain. It was a regional bento, so if you didn't get a chance to try it, try this recipe. It's inspired by the warrior Oda Nobunaga. I marinated chicken with the red wine he's said to have loved.
